What our service users say
I've recruited a personal assistant through Barnsley PA Finder and it was very easy. It was nice to read a little about the PA and I could see that they had similar interests to myself.
The PA Finder is easy to use and there's lots of information on the website to help you. I'm glad the scheme is available.
The site is brilliant. It's easy to apply, I was invited for an interview straight away, and I was given lots of information. I'm looking forward to becoming an approved PA.
