Throughout the years I have gained many skills.
I am a qualified hairdresser as well as working as a security guard for 10 years.
I worked for a cleaning company for many years.
I gained some skills working in a kitchen and I also worked in a care home when I was younger, when my great grandad was living there.
I thoroughly enjoy looking after people and helping them out with their every day needs. I have done it for a very long time and feel it’s a very rewarding job.

young son. During this time I also fostered young people with additional needs and mental health issues over a
10 year period
My key strengths are being reliable, kind, honest, caring, really easy to get along with, patient, energetic and
