Please read the Job Description carefully before providing information in this Section of the Application Form. Give details of your previous employment or experience which you think would help you to do this job. (required): I have spent over 13 years as a highly qualified and well-trained nursery assistant. I have received First Aid training, epilepsy training and inclusion training. During this time, I have worked with children with a wide variety of special requirements. Health and Safety, safeguarding and wellbeing is always a top priority in this position. Organisational skills and record keeping are also very important, recording daily planners and charting progress. I also have experience with a family member with mental health issues. Spending years nurturing this person and helping them through their issues is one of the factors that made me pursue a career in care. This made me appreciate how rewarding it is to be able to help others.
What qualities do you think are important when working as a personal assistant with a disabled person? (required): I believe being caring, understanding and compassionate are key qualities. Respecting people’s homes and property is also important alongside understanding the importance of health and safety and safeguarding. Building friendships and trust along with confidentiality and privacy is an important part of this role. Being patient and spending time listening or understanding the persons needs whether it be through conversation or non-communicative methods is also very important. I have experience working with non-communicative children and understand how this effects their day to day living. Another important thing is understanding that not all days are good days for everyone and being able to be there to offer help and support on these difficult days is something I can do. I can always put a smile on someone’s face!.
How do you think you can contribute towards the needs and the independence of a disabled person? (required): I am very outgoing with a huge personality. I can adapt to any situation whilst still maintaining my magnetic personality. I am enthusiastic, fun and always wiling to try new things. I understand that time and patience mixed with fun and laughs can help anyone! Being supportive and listening is always important. Setting small achievable goals and breaking things down into small steps is a fantastic way to help people overcome things and become more independent. Having personal experience with a family member suffering from social anxieties and mental health issues I have witnessed the success of this method and I can adapt this method to any situation.
What is it about PA work which appeals to you? (required): I have always been a caring and compassionate person. Being a PA means I can provide care and companionship, build friendships and bring fun to a variety of people regardless of their needs or situation. I love being able to be helpful. Making a difference to people’s lives is such a rewarding thing to be able to do.
What are your hobbies/interests?: I am a bit of a geek! I am a Star Wars fan, Marvel and DC comics fan, I love films, music, animals and having fun. I enjoy walking in the countryside or along the beach (as long as I don’t get too cold!) I enjoy going out for meals, going to music concerts, the cinema and activities such as bowling. My teenage son keeps me young, current and up to date. Having a teenage son inevitably means I am a bit of a gamer.
