JOB DESCRIPTION

JOB SHARE Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a male in my early 40’s living in the area of Barry. I have a rare skin condition called Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) which is a painful, long-term skin condition that causes abscesses and scarring on the skin. This can flare and cause me great difficulty in my normal day-to-day living. I am an easy going, funny guy and can sometimes be loud and also enjoy banter and bouncing off other people. I enjoy painting and abstract art, pottery, crafts and love getting out in the fresh air and going for a local walk. When I am in a flare, I cannot move an awful lot and become bed bound and experience brain fog.
