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

I have over 30 years of dealing with the public and I love helping people. I have a massive amount of patience and I love socialising and chatting to people.
Although I come from a retail background I feel this has given me the patience and love for social interaction with all kinds of age ranges.

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

I have two children that now live between me & my ex partner and I am used to running around and looking after them and keeping a household running efficiently. My work history has given me great IT skills and I am used to listening to peoples needs and doing all I can to ensure they are happy. I have dealt with all kinds of disabilities in the workplace and I have no fear of contact to help and assist people with mobility.

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

It is important to ensure people with disabilities feel happy and comfortable around you , I would treat anyone with a disability the same as without a disability. My father in law is confined to a wheelchair with MS and has been for the last 30 years, so I understand the importance of giving people independence, but equally so making sure I am there to help and assist. It is important to build relationships and for them to feel comfortable around you.
I am very good at reading body language and I am very perceptive to a situation.
I would also help by assessing any hazards, dangers and making sure there is a safe environment around them.

What is it about PA work which appeals to you?

I love helping people and I would take great pleasure to know I can help someone live their best life and help them whilst they still have their own independence.
I am used to doing my own admin on a PC and can help with all kinds of things from that aspect as well as helping out at home with the housekeeping. I love walking along the beaches and parks in Barry and visiting coffee shops. I am the perfect person for this job.

What are your hobbies/interests?

Walks along the beaches of Barry, Jacksons Bay, Barry Island, The Knap, Porthkerry Park, Romilly Park, Cosmeston and Cardiff Bay.
Coffee dates with friends
Cinema
Meals and get together with friends
Travel
Shopping with my daughters
Gardening

Although it may seem strange that I am applying for this role given my past experience was a managerial role, I want to get across that I am looking for a part time role that will fit in with my life. this is something I know I could excel at and would really enjoy as I love helping people.

I am ideally looking for 16 hours and when I read about this gentlemen I could visualise myself assisting him with his day to day life.
