The personal statement is the first thing potential clients will read about you after seeing your photograph. This is your opportunity to sell yourself and describe what it is you can do. Below are some ideas about writing the best possible profile.
Describe yourself; how long you have been a care assistant and do you have any specialist skills? Try to be in some way different or interesting. Hobbies/interests? What do you like to do? For example sports, reading, cooking, crosswords, current affairs, walking, spending time with family, pets, music etc.
Please check your grammar and spelling. It may be helpful to get a friend to check it through before submission. This profile will be one of many and you need to stand out and sound appealing to your clients and their families. Emphasise any unique character skills you have, whether they be language skills or expertise with certain conditions.
At this stage, you will receive an email to the email account you used when registering. A message will appear in your inbox on the Curam platform. If using the app, a notification will be received. You and the client can now arrange a suitable time to meet up and discuss their needs. If you are both happy to work with each other the contract can now be agreed and created.
It is you who is responsible for creating the contract
