Having practised as a teacher in Zimbabwe for 12 years, I now wish to pursue a career in Health and Social Care, focusing on Health. Have just completed my BA (Hons) in Health and Social Care at the University of Derby and I expect to graduate with a 2.1 class honours in June 2015. Accordingly, in seeking employment with your organisation, I believe that I possess the strength and personal attributes to work with people facing social exclusion and need assistance with their personal care . Indeed, an ability to enhance my existing knowledge in this particular arena of health care is one which I would especially relish and is a further reason for my choosing to apply to this particular job. My academic strengths are complemented by a range of relevant personal experiences that highlight not only my suitability for this job but also my longer-term career goals. Through working in a variety of nursing homes, residential care homes, dementia assessment wards, and acute mental health wards, I have an extensive set of inter-personal skills that enable me to communicate effectively with a diverse range of people, from nursing professionals to high ranking consultants, as well as individual patients and their concerned relatives. These are transferrable skills that I will bring with me to this job. In addition, as an altruistic person with a strong sense of empathy, and using the skills that I have learnt in both nursing, shadowing placements and my former career as a teacher, I hope to ensure that fellow work mates and clients who may be more reticent in voicing their opinions and views will feel that they are in a safe environment in which we can all work as ateam. Indeed, as a committed Christian who attends church regularly, I believe that it is my duty to assist and help others in all walks of life whenever the need or opportunity arises. With relevant clinic skills acquired through placement, a proven track record in both oral and written communication, and well-honed interpersonal and team-working skills, I am a full-time mother of four who is used to the demands of running a busy household. Thus, when not involved in active study or work, I am proficient in finding time to indulge my passion of reading. As a result, I possess exceptional time-management skills and am confident in my own abilities to make decisions in a proactive and professional manner at all times. These are strengths which, I feel, are vital to my successful undertaking the job.
