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 previously worked in an inclusive youth club for children with disabilities, I worked as a one to one to numerous children with a variety of needs. I also worked for GAVO as an inclusive play worker. In addition I have helped with the care of my grandmother over the last year as her health has deteriorated.

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

Firstly I think patience is key, I understand that allowing somebody into your life and your Home is a massive undertaking and that it may be challenging and I think allowing the person who needs the support time to adapt is key. Also, I think a caring, kind nature is of the utmost importance, I feel that I am a very caring person and I could offer support in many ways.

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

I feel that I am a very caring person and that I could offer the lady needing the support some companionship whilst supporting her in the many wonderful activities she enjoys. It is so important she feels comfortable with the person she will be spending her time with and I would work really hard to make sure she felt comfortable around me, I think it’s key to learn about the person you’re supporting and take an interest in them and what’s important to them.

What is it about PA work which appeals to you?

I have always enjoyed working with people and when I worked as a one to one previously it was the highlight of my career and I really want to get back to that. I thrive when I am helping other people and supporting them and I feel like this role would fulfil that need for me.

What are your hobbies/interests?

I am very family oriented and that takes up most of my time. However, I do enjoy spending time with my friends socialising and I also enjoy taking my dog out for walks with my children and husband
