Thanks, I tried a couple and I think it was streetmap.co.uk that helped most, all is good
I got there 20 minutes early but I didn't have a watch so I just went to the door and found a very confused woman who kept trying to apologise that she didn't have her notes ready for interviewing me but she seemed to have lost half an hour of her morning
But I think I convinced them of my punctuality at the very least.
Now to save making a new thread I'm going to blether about the job I applied for here.
It's basically looking after a young woman with severe learning and developmental impairments in a companiable type way, taking her out swimming, going to he park, going shopping, doing a bit of baking and simple housework with her, that sort of thing. It's something I've been really interested in for the last year or so, basically sice I worked a summer job in a retirement home last summer, I don't think I could cope with caring for the very old or very young on a permenant basis but the idea of working with young adults is something I'm actually considering as a career (even though it doesn't really fit in with my uni course, but I want my degree anyways, even just for the sake of snobbery and the fact that it's a really interesting course
The interview went well and I got on really well with the girl I'd be caring for, I'm pretty sure her mum said she'd be 23 this year but she looks really young. Luckily for me the mum wants someone nearer the girl's age than her other carers as she obviously can't have much of a social life because of her difficulties and almost everyone else who applied is in their mid-thirties at least, the younger ones apparently don't hvae the same range of experience I do so I think I have a good chance, why else would she tell me that stuff right? Unless she was just unconsciously and painfully indiscreet :S
The hours are great for me, only 16 hours a week Monday and Friday 7am-3pm. It means I'll have to get up at about five those mornings but I hardly sleep anyways and it leaves the rest of my day free and doesn't mess up my weekends of hedonistic fun so woo-hoo!
Wish me luck!
