What is the Wirral Personal Assistant Register?

The Wirral Personal Assistant Register is a free service offered by Wirral based charity WIRED to connect employers with personal assistants in Wirral. 
How does it work?
Employers, Direct Payment recipients or individuals funding their own support who have a vacancy for a personal assistant register with the Wirral Personal Assistant Register using this form. WIRED will then email the employer the name and contact details of personal assistants that match the employers needs based on the registration information provided by both the employer and the personal assistant. This will enable the employer to contact the personal assistants directly and make arrangements for interviews etc. WIRED will not share employers details with personal assistant candidates.
Please note - Personal assistants and employers are matched only using the information provided by each at registration. WIRED is not in anyway endorsing or recommending either personal assistants or employers.
