What is the PA Register for?
The Active Independence PA Register is a resource to be used by both PAs and employers. Think of it as a searchable database designed to enable both parties to introduce themselves to one another.
It works on two fronts. It allows employers to advertise PA jobs, and it allows PAs in the region to advertise their availability.
How does it work?
The PA Register is a database. It allows PAs to complete a profile, and these profiles can be searched by employers. It also allows employers to advertise specific jobs, which are searchable by PAs.
If a PA thinks they might be suitable for one of these advertised jobs, they are able to apply directly to the employer.
Is there a charge for browsing the PA Register?
No, this service is free.
How do I post an advert?
Register as an employer, you can then post a job.
The online form is kept as simple as possible and there is a box where you can put a few details about the job description. To ensure your privacy we strongly advise employers to keep this description factual, and avoid putting any information about personal circumstances. You can discuss specific issues or needs with potential job applicants at the interview.
Once you have entered the job descriptions, you will then be asked to select which recruit package you would like to purchase. Please click on this link further information on the recruitment packages available.
What happens when a PA applies to my job advert?
When a PA uses the Apply Now function on a job advert, you will get an automated email notifying you that a PA has applied to your vacancy and includes any message the PA may have written.
You then need to go into your employer dashboard where you will find a next to the PAs name.
If you click on this please alter the notification to either read; accepted; rejected. The PA will then be notified that their application has been noted. At this point you will have access to the PAs telephone number and email address. You can choose how to contact them from this point on.
You remain in control throughout the process.
