On the 1st June 2008, PA Pool, the website for PA Users (disabled people) who are recruiting and for PAs (carers) who are looking for work, celebrated its first birthday.
PA Pool has received a fantastic response from users and supporters alike and in its first 12 months has provided a much needed resource to over a thousand PA Users and PAs. The member total now stands at over 2000 and is growing every day.
“I think PA Pool is great for PA Users to select and employ the best PA.”
“PA pool is highly appreciated! It is the fastest and most effective way to find a carer job.”
“What I like best is that I can find out a little about the individual PA’s who were looking for work, as presented by themselves, prior to deciding on whether or not to contact them.”
“Thanks for all your hard work I found a great job!”
“Just stumbled across your site – exactly what my wife and I have needed for years – you absolute genius! – going to wake her up and tell her… THANK-YOU!”
Director Katy Etherington says
There is obviously a great need for this type of resource and I am so pleased people are really benefitting from it. The website is currently under further development and Katy has plans for expanding the website.
I have been approached by many organisations who would benefit from being able to use PA Pool. My plan is to build a corporate side to the service, so non individuals can post their requirements and identify suitably experienced people through PA Pool.
