Rebecca's Description

I am female, originally from England, and currently backpacking around Australia, having travelled through Asia to begin with. I have a Working Holiday Visa, so I am eligible to work within Australia. I am hoping to settle in one place to get a real feel of Australian life.

I am a passionate person when it comes to children. I am motivated, energetic, happy, smiley, positive and am naturally caring. I come from a loving family and a good background with strong morals and values.

My experience with children ranges. I used to baby sit in my teenage years every Friday and Saturday evenings and always helped with other duties like tidying the house. Since then, I have had work experience in Primary schools and I have considered this as a career path.

Before setting off to travel, I dedicatedly volunteered for two and a half years with the Youth Offending Team with children in the Criminal Justice Service every week night on top of working full time hours with drug addicts. These children were both male and female and were aged between the ages of 12-18 years old, some having disability needs and behavioural issues. This role was challenging as these children were from unprivileged backgrounds thus needed extra support, guidance and care, and were known offenders to the system. I would say this role especially portrays my patience, empathy, non-judgemental attitude, care and supportive nature and ability to work in challenging situations which may arise with children.

Furthermore, my role as a drug project worker also strongly echoes my passion for helping people and being a supportive role in an individual's life. It was difficult to leave this role before travelling as I had found an area I'm fond of and had real connections with my clients, but I felt travelling at that point was the right time for me.

I have also worked with young children and adults with learning disabilities. The disabilities ranged, for example, autism; down syndrome; individuals with brain injuries. Here I worked in a residential house where residents lived permanently, I also spent part of my week in a day centre where service users came for the day to partake in an activity of their own choice. This included going for a walk, playing football; acting; painting, colouring in, playing board games, reading a book, baking and cooking.
I would definitely say I am a flexible person and I'm a helping hand wherever possible. I am a dab hander with a mop and bucket!; I can clean the house, do the laundry, cook healthy meals (especially vegetarian meals); and assist in any chore which is needing to be completed.

I have a genuine interest in helping children develop, both mentally and socially by teaching, interacting and engaging with them. I get great satisfaction from educating, teaching and playing with children and seeing them grow into their own characters.

I have several hobbies which I enjoy outside of work, running, staying fit and healthy; reading; listening to music; going to music festivals; travelling; swimming; horse riding.

I am looking for full time work, hours and pay are both completely negotiable.

Thank you for taking your time to read this. I hope to hear from you soon.
