About Me

I am a 54 year old parent of 2 daughters (now independent), & Godmother to 4 boys. I moved back to Newmarket (my home town) in December, having lived in Ipswich for 3 years. I am looking for some part-time work, daytime mainly, but can also work evenings & weekends on request. I am also available for extra hours during school holidays. I moved to Ipswich for my previous job at the local Hospice, to work as one of two lead Complementary Therapists; treating patients adults and young adults) and their Carers, whilst also supervising 4 voluntary Complementary Therapists. My last job, before leaving Ipswich was as a Scheme Manager (over 55's Leasehold Independent living) for Home Group Ltd and as an approved Foster Carer for a 14 year old boy. I have a lifetime of experience in various caring roles, including; nursing, community care-working with young adults and adults with life shortening illnesses, Complementary Therapy and Scheme Management for the over 55's.

Describing myself, I would say that I'm a very honest, caring, hard working person. I have a young outlook on life and really look forward to caring for younger children again. Finally, I have a clean full driving license, current enhanced DBS and a L3 Paediatric First Aid Certificate to hand.

My Experience

Nursing, childminding, community care, fostering and most importantly, experience as a parent and also as a guardian to children of my friends and families' children. I am more than used to taking children to sports clubs, play dates and other recreational activities. Previous work within local football, also allowed me to hold the FA's Child Protection certificate at that time. As previously stated, I now hold a Level 3 Paediatric First aid qualification and a DBS from my fostering agency, of which I have recently handed in my resignation so will no longer be fostering.

My Qualifications

Life experience and 23 years being a parent. I am a qualified Complementary Therapist - VTCT Complementary Therapies Diploma Level 3 (includes, reflexology, remedial massage, advanced massaged, aromatherapy), Sports Massage Level 3 Diploma, Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage Cert, Level 3 Cert Paediatric First Aid, Fostering Skills Cert, short courses in - Bereavement & Loss for children, Safeguarding & Safer Caring Children. I am at present completing a C&G dog grooming course at college which finishes in June 2019.

My Availability

I work a few irregular hours each week, therefore, I am open to a variety of working hours. School pick up, drop off and evenings are not an issue. The only day i cannot do is a Wednesday due to my current participation in a higher education course in term time. As previously mentioned, I will have extra availability during school holidays.
