I'm male (by the way). It's the path/journey I've decided to take. It's something I believe I will excel at and enable me to make a difference and be happy. (
What's your thoughts on the 'male' aspect of it. Male Nurse/Care assistant ?
Regarding the position currently advertised on reed.co.uk please find attached a copy of my CV for your consideration.
I have a Degree in Science of the Administration and I speak three languages: Italian as my mother tongue and English and Spanish as second languages.
In London I recently worked as a receptionist and marketing assistant.
I was in charge of all the activities related to the students care. Students booking management, greeting students and visitors, answering enquiries in person, by phone and on email, dealing with complains. A relevant part of my work was placing students into suitable accommodation, dealing with homestay and residential accommodation, organising transfers services and seeking new accommodation services. As well as I managed online and offline marketing activities such as: coming up with ideas to increase the number of the students, newsletter, direct mailing, links exchange with other schools, social media activities on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, organizing social events for the students.
This experience has been extremely useful in improving my skills and has revealed that this is a field which I really like and where I am perfectly at ease. I have gained a valuable experience in dealing with students, especially with difficult queries and complains. I developed a high standard of customers service skills and a strong sense of problem solving. Today I have the ability to use initiative to deal with unexpected situations and I learned how to approach people from different backgrounds and cultures on an individual basis.
I am very dynamic and creative person with good sense of duty and always willing to put myself to the test. Thanks to my multilingual, communication and listening skills I can easily relate to students and I am able to develop inter-personal relationship with them. Everything I have done in the last three years has been dealing with people in different situations gaining lots of experience in the field. I think for all these reasons I can be a strong candidate for this role and I am sure I will be a valuable asset to your company
I am open to all options and even an internship would be great for me. Feel free to contact me for any additional information. Thank you in advance for your time.
I'm 17 years old at college and I currently have a weekend job at a residential home. Could someone please guide me towards writing a letter to resign.
How many questions will I be asked and what sort of questions will I be asked? I need to prepare fully for this interview! Thankyou for all the feedback.
I am 23 years old and have been working in San Diego, America as a Health Care Assistant at the hospital for two years on a working visa. Six months into my stay I met an American Man and we started dating in America, a year later he proposed to me and we plan on getting married soon. I would love some advice on immigration to America being a UK Citizen only working out here. I do not have a skill just managed to find a health care assistant job in a hospital, which requires no formal qualifications just a little experience working in hospitals. My main concern is once my working visa has expired as I have no degree or formal qualifications will America not allow me to stay and carry on working in America even if I am engaged to an American?
I would appreciate any feedback, also anyone who has had a similar experience, can the country deny you the right to be with your fiancé once you get married? Will they say I have to go back and work in my own country, etc etc. I'm just a normal person who met a guy and does not want to be separated from him, so evidentially living and working in America with my to be husband is what if want.
I've got not pain but feelings in my left bum cheek and a little down my leg. I'm a care assistant so always on my get and moving heavy things. Also I'm always going to the toilet for a wee and feel nausea a lot of the time and not myself I'm a little worried please can someone give me some advice
I'm writing a short story which involves someone who is a midwife. As I know very little about midwifery, I wanted to ask what a typical day involves.
My character is working a night shift. When you arrive, what sort of things do you do?
1. Do you show a card to anyone to get in?
2. Do you arrive in your uniform/overalls or get changed at the hospital?
3. What is the area where all the newborn babies are kept called?
4. Do you undergo the 'handover', where the day staff inform the night staff of the women on the ward?
5. What time does the night shift start and what time does it end?
6. Where are the babies born, specifically, what are the rooms called? Is it just a delivery suite?
7. Do you start your shift checking on the patients or doing paperwork?
Basically, my character can't have children of her own, so she spends her nights off watching over the newborn babies. She won't actually be working, but I just wanted to give a bit of background information as to what the other midwives are doing.
Hi, my mum wants to work as a nursery nurse/assistant but apparently she has to have the qualification of a NVQ level 2/3 in children's care. But the problem is she is applying for the course in our local college but she has to have 4/5 GCSE's at Grade D or above. The thing is though, she has done a bachelors degree in Pakistan and has done her GCSE's there too, is that okay or does she have to have GCSE's done from the UK?
And another question if you can answer, do you have to have level 2/3 NVQ to become a nursery nurse?
Thanks so much, we really need the answer to this question!

This is the post i made on the o2 forums and I'm looking for more advice before i go back in store all guns blazing.
"Hi o2 would just like to say as soon as my contract is over i will definitely be taking my business else where. on the 21/04/2013 (at the southampton above bar street store) i had the pleasure of dealing with a very rude assistant manager of yours. His name was Russ and to say he had customer service skills is a joke i have no idea how he got to assistant manager.
The problem was that i bought an Xperia z from you on pay as you go and paid the full $499.99 up front to go home and find that when i use the phone to connect to the internet over wife it would take about 10 minutes for everything in my house to go offline all at once including my router. Now thinking it was my router at first i waited 2 weeks (going over your 7 day policy) to buy a new router thinking that was the problem and not the phone. But after spending £40 for a new router i am still having the same problem so i take the phone back on the said date above.
When i got to the store i was greeted by an assistant manager who after hearing my case said he would not do anything for me as it clearly says on my receipt that the policy is 7 days (great customer service already) and i tell him its in my right that if something is not performing as it should im entitled to a full refund if i wish by law. He was very dismissive and wouldnt listen and kept repeating the policy not saying anything else. Barely letting me get a word in edge ways because he continued to interrupt me at every turn about his policy. But when i did get a word in i asked him "are you saying your store policy is stronger than the law and any of my rights" he shrugged his shoulders at me.. Yep shrugged. Now I've worked in retail before and if i was acting this way so far a disciplinary would have likely come way to say the least. But he continued to be rude and told me that he studies law and he knows all about what i actually think my rights are and that he is right and the law in this case is wrong.
As he was standing there with an ipad i told him to google the consumers right act 1979 so i could prove my case he then went and put the ipad down on a desk and then started to offer me a replacement and told me if that didnt work he would only offer a service of repair. Even though i knew he was breaking the law i thought fine i will accept the replacement.
Now i get home with this replacement the wifi issue is gone how ever my 3g keeps failing making me restart my phone to re-initiate it. this is a £500 phone and dont expect this to happen. I have no idea how this Russ got a job at your company let alone get promoted to assistant manager he clearly has no customer service skills. retail is about the customer not being arrgoant and smug towards them.
I have contacted your complaints department to have no reply (what a surprise) so i have contacted trading standards and the citizen advice bureau via email to see if i can take any legal action which i will if i can. Usually this sort of thing doesnt bother me so much but its the sheer rudeness of your representative that has just been un-believable.
I'm not even sure if this will even get to you and if it does you will probably ignore this and nothing will come back to the assistant manager because thats how these big companies tend to work. You see it the way he clearly see's it. You have my money and could care less now.
If you couldnt tell as soon as my contract is over i will be taking myself else where ASAP."
Now since that post i have been on the phone to customer service a couple times trying to get my money back as they have not only once but twice managed to give me a faulty phone. But the managers at customer service we're a lot more polite but just as helpful they gave and offered me nothing. I couldnt even make a formal complaint against the assistant manager but they said they would pass my details on to the store manager to get back to me. Been a couple days still nothing.
Any advice from you guys would be great im really frustrated and feel cheated by a big firm =/
L am a community care assistant, and l love my job but the management is poor, and they don't pay petrol mileage, so l am not going to use my car - l use my bicycle instead, but it is only a matter of time before they find out l have a car, and l need more money so l can save up for another course and go to university.
l am studying nursing as well, so experience is vital for the university course l want to get onto. But there are people saying, "oh so and so went there, and she hated it!" and stuff like that, which is making me wonder whether l should go for it. Again, if the job l am currently with paid mileage and had better and more professional management, l wouldn't mind but l just think it is time for a change.
l am just worried it won't work out, despite the fact that l do love working with elder people and within a team.
Any advice and guidance?

I used to work as a care assistant in a care home. One evening shift I was on a unit by myself when I was helping one of the male patients (who had dementia) in his own bedroom. He was much bigger than me. He grabbed me, was touching me all over, including private areas and held me so that I couldn't get away. He then started kissing my face and neck, it was awful. I froze, I was very scared and had been told in training that carers aren't allowed to use physical force against residents, even to defend themselves. I didn't want to hurt him so I had to wait until he loosened his grip so that I could run out of he room.
I was very shaken up about it and embarrassed. I did tell another more experienced carer about it and she told management. Somehow everyone knew about it. Some thought it was funny and one senior carer made a joke about it. I felt horrible. No manager asked me how I was, no one cared. I was just asked to fill out a form and that was it. They even kept putting me back on the same unit by myself, so I left.
Was that classed as sexual abuse? Should the care home have dealt with it better?
I'm still affected by this today. I'm having trouble letting go of what happened. I did manage to find work in another care home, but when the same 2-10 shift came up, I couldn't face it and I never went back in again. Am I making a big deal out of nothing. or being too sensitive and how do I get passed this? I don't like my partner to kiss me anymore because it takes me back to what happened.
Serious answers only please.

I am 14 and I need help on what to do. I am feeling really unloved and unwanted.
I live with my mum, dad and sister and my parents both work.
However that isn't the problem, the problem is that my mum works as a teaching assistant and her friend is a teacher and they work together and i'm fine with that BUT her friend rings EVERY night as soon as my mum gets in at 5:30 we have something to eat and you can guarantee she will ring straight after and spend ALL night on the phone, I'll be in bed before she's off the phone then she'll ring back early hours of the morning like last night my mum didn't get off the phone from her till 12:30am but then at 3am her friend rung my mum not thinking about waking all the family up of course and decided to talk for hours AGAIN. I have told my mum i feel pushed out the way with her always ringing and its like i'm loosing her but she doesn't understand.
Also 4 weeks ago i went in hospital to have my appendix removed and I was crying all night in hospital the night before the operation yet my mums friend rung her and was on the phone for hours not caring about me at all, i was crying my eyes out in pain. Then when I came out the sleepyness that they put you to sleep with the anesthetic i was coming round and my mum and dad were holding my hand but half a hour later my mums phone rang again and it was her again.
Its every night and my mum doesn't understand, I don't feel like a normal child anymore, feels like i'm loosing a mum as i've told her! If i'm at a friends house and I ring my mum I won't be able to get through because she'll be on the phone. If she rings me from her mobile you can guarantee her friend will ring the house phone then my mum will put the phone down on me./
My mum really doesn't understand at all.
My dad doesn't really do anything either, he comes home and watches cops on telly or something to do with the police, I can't speak to him because he'll say "go away"
If i text him he doesn't reply.
If I ring him he'll pick up to see who it is then he'll say 'sorry i'm busy' and put the phone down.
He really doesn't care.
My sister she is 17 and she's always creating arguments by wanting money all the time, getting places, wanting more things and complaining she doesn't have anything when she has more than 3 kids put together.
I don't know what to do anymore, someone help me?
Btw my mums friend doesn't ring about work just before you say anything about work
This has gone on for over a year
I had this teacher last year (he doesn't teach me this year) and he was hilarious, a good teacher and really nice. I don't fancy him! My classmates were generally horrible to him as he's 'weak', if that makes sense. He said that the other teachers 'bully' him and once this girl in our class made him cry and run out of the room. I was good at his subject and I was sort of his favourite. He once said to someone that they were bullying me in front of the whole class even when they weren't. Anyway, this year, we still chat, and I gave him a Christmas card etc. He runs board games club and he randomly gave me a board game as a present! We joke around a lot, he tells me about his family, recommended me a castle to visit and is really nice. I even gave him a song recommendation! So, do you think he sees me as a friend? I think maybe he sees himself in me a little because I have Asperger's (he doesn't know this) and he's awkward too. He said he was bullied at his really posh boarding school and he hated it there. Also, how can I ask him for his email so we can keep in touch and possibly hang out? Thanks in advance! Also, before you say anything like 'He's a weirdo', he is married and has two children. He told me this. He's not any sort of predator. He's very childish and innocent. Another teacher even said this.
I want to become a primary school teaching assistant. I am 17 years old. I have all my GCSE grades: maths, english and science all above a C. I am currently in college but looking to change my course to a Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools. Would this be alright to help me become a teaching assistant?
And the course also asks for a work/voluntary placement in a school, as that is how it is assessed. How would i go about getting this placement? All places i have looked at ,that are in need of a teaching assistant, are looking for experienced and qualified TAs.
Also, does anyone know how much i would get paid if i become a teaching assistant?
Please help. Thanks :)
1. Are there MORAL reasons at all why we should keep inheritance tax in this country?
2. A few successful people have worked hard for most of their lives to become rich. Why should self made billionaires/millionaires be penalized for their hard work? Why shouldn't the successful ones be allowed to keep most of their private fortunes intact and pass it to the next generation?
3. Why should rich people be made to give their money to the poor who don't deserve a penny?
4. Beside the moral reasons, are there any PRACTICAL reasons at all why we should keep inheritance tax in this country?
In the past I was bullied, abused by my family and ex boyfriends. I always think about it. In 2009, I was suspended from nursing placement (I was a final year student nurse) for malpractice. I can't study nursing again. When I did my final placement, a student nurse facilitator bullied me. She was condescending, rude, and patronising. She falsified a report about me, saying that I took 15 minutes to flush a patient's feeding tube, it was actually 5 minutes. I confronted her about it, and she denied it. I remember when she was being rude to me, I told her bluntly not to speak to me like an idiot. That woman accused me of being rude and said she said her own children don't talk like that to her.
I reported her behaviour to the university, they said they don't often receive complaints about her.Lots of other students didn't like her.
The ward manager sanctioned a suspension against me because of a few mistakes I made. That woman told me nursing is not suitable for me and I should consider a job as a health care assistant. The day before I was suspended I attempted suicide.
I can't file a lawsuit against them, because I was suspended before from placement previously. A horrible nurse failed me and said I was out of depth.
All what happened in my past makes me depressed.
I cry about it all the time
Don't understand, you made a lot of typos
Thank you don't
