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

In 2018 I worked for a company called Drive. I was a home Support Worker supporting 3 ladies with a range of learning disabilities and mental health needs. I was based in their home and often took them out into the wider community to support them to attend any doctor/ hospital appointments and to do their weekly shop at a local supermarket. Working here I built friendly close relationships with the ladies and I believe it gave me understanding and the skills needed to help me in other care/ personal assistant line of work in the future.

In 2014 I worked for another company called Diamond Home support. This employment was a similar role. I supported a number of people with a range of different health needs at their home and in the wider community.

Outside of working hours I have an elderly nan who I visit and take out once a week. She often needs my support out in the community and at home doing light domestic duties, preparing meals and giving her company and support whilst keeping her safe within the community and whilst I am in her home.

What qualities do you think are important when working as a personal assistant with a disabled person?

Patients and understanding.
A cheery/ positive demeanour
The ability to multi-task
Punctuality
Empathy and kindness
Good communication/ listening skills
Good motivator
Good understanding of Confidentiality
Putting the needs of the client first.

How do you think you can contribute towards the needs and the independence of a disabled person?

I am a kind and caring individual who has empathy and understanding. I am a good listener and will always give people a listening ear and a friendly face to talk to.
I am bubbly and chatty and like to have fun. I like to do new things and will motivate others to participate in activities that I think will interest them and if its possible to do so.
I like to help others and make a difference where I can.
I believe in supporting people and not doing everything for them as this takes any independence away from them. So I will observe and support where needed and will support further when asked.
I like to build new friendships and well as doing my job to the best possible standard.

What is it about PA work which appeals to you?

Meeting new people and building new friendships no matter what age the person may be.
I like to help others and make a difference.
I Like to help individuals live a happy normal life and support them where needed to help them achieve this and to prevent their illness/ disabilities become a barrier.

I believe that everyone deserves a little me time and agree with families having time out. I am a person who can be relied on and will do all that is asked of me to a good standard. I am hoping I will build a trusting relationship with both the client/ person who needs support and their families and wider circle.

What are your hobbies/interests?

I enjoy spending time with my family going on days out or cinema trips and food in a local restaurant.

I enjoy reading, going for walks and attending the gym few times a week.
Over the last year I have become much more active and will bring my hobbies and interests into my working life if possible.
