During my time working for Beethoven Community Center as a community worker I have learned to multitask through taking up various duties i.e. by providing educational information for those that sought advice, interpret when needed for elderly residents whom could not speak English, help organize events and trips for local youth. I have gained strong organizational skills, being able to prioritize workload and have always taken full responsibility for all tasks. Having strong administration skills is essential as I had to maintain the database, input clients data acquired during sessions and provide fellow colleagues with up to date information. Being able to liaise with clients and fellow colleagues thus ensuring that everything went as agreed. I have good people skills as I have picked this up early on from working as a Social worker at Caxton Youth Club, I have developed a thorough understanding working with vulnerable people, assist youth with learning difficulties and provide them with the right tools enabling them to better themselves. I am self motivated and have high level of energy which is a must when youre working in any sector , as you are constantly on your feet assisting elderly and ensuring that their needs are met at all times. I am very tolerant and flexible to different situations mainly because working with people is always unpredictable. Therefore I find this no problem at all as I am able to adjust myself to different levels from young children to elderly people. I am a good team player as I listen carefully to others when they are speaking and can assimilate the messages into one vision.
For example, if my colleague is part of a project team, Ill listen to the ideas and concerns of others. I am also patient and respectful to the voice of other team members and understand that to be a team player; I have to have an open mind to other points of view. I am quite flexible in terms of hours/days. I know that working in this field can be both stressful and rewarding however I am fully prepared for all the ups and downs. I can take ownership of projects and make sure that all boxes are ticked upon completion; I take my work at all times seriously. I am the type of person that likes to go the extra mile.
I always ensure that I keep myself updated on the actual role I am fulfilling i.e. maintaining administration in the most efficient manner and ensure to being organized at all times. Being open for suggestions for example take negative feedback and transform that into something positive. I am fully aware of my surroundings and easily adaptable to environment and fellow colleagues. I am a quick learner and I want to help make a difference towards other peoples lives. I have gathered early on during my work experiences that I get a great satisfaction from seeing others improve from services provided by me. I have always completed training programs and I am someone whom sees her targets through and I hope that you provide me with the opportunity to prove this to you. I am an open-minded person and take suggestions on board that will help me better my work at all times analytical/logical approach to tasks and the ability to work under pressure. I am able to work well both on my own initiative and as part of a team. My main strengths are adaptability, dependability and the determination to get a job done as proven by my varied work experiences. I try to learn something new from every experience because I believe there is always room for self-improvement both personally and professionally.
