Please read the Job Description carefully before providing information in this Section of the Application Form.

Through music, I work with and play with people from all walks of life. Studying music at University requires me to be resilient as at times it is very challenging, it requires me to be very hardworking, and have a great sense of commitment and love for music. I am a very empathetic and understanding person, and I believe I am suitable for this role for those reasons. Previously, I have worked on music courses for young children, where I have been working with children who have differing abilities, and because of that I have to be flexible to differing needs, understanding of needs, and kind. I have also had many jobs in customer service within hospitality which has led me to develop strong communication, reliability, and problem solving skills.

I believe I can contribute towards the independence of a disabled person by providing a completely judgement free environment, and allowing to communicate with me freely, whether that be what they’d like to do on certain days or simply to tell me a story. 

 
What is it about PA work which appeals to you? (required): PA work appeals to me for many reasons. Firstly, I love working with people and getting to know people.
