I am a Female carer with general care experience within Care work, Home Care, Live in care work, I also have 1-3 live in care experience. I am looking for work Nationwide
My English language level is Advanced
I have a Full License ( Though my car is in Spain)
I have care qualifications within NVQ Health and Social Care. I am educated to degree level.
I hope this finds you well?. I have been registered with "Live in care .com.uk" for a short while now but, due to work commitments abroad etc...I have not been in a position to respond to interview/induction invites. I am NOW back in the U.K, and I am in a better position/location to do so.
I am friendly, outgoing and chatty. I would suit someone who would benefit from good conversation and I have a good SOH. Apart from my "caring" skills ( see above) I am an excellent cook( restaurant trained). I hold a clean U.K driving licence though, my own car is in Spain.
Ideally, I would like to be employed on a S/E basis though, I am open to suggestions. I am ideally looking for a position whereby I could become a "friend" and not "just" a carer. My preferred work pattern would be 1/2 weeks on, with a few days break. Although I would consider being a "floater" whereby, I could be moved from one week to the next to cover sickness/holidays/emergency cover.
I am not at this time looking for a permanent placement as Spain is my home, and I would like to be able to return there for 4/5 weeks now and then. My main availability would likely be June to September, and November to April. I may, at some time in the future consider a more permanent move back to the U.K. I believe, a good carer has empathy, and a understanding of the ageing process. And can "think on their feet" ie, "good common sense".
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
