    Job Application Personal Statement!

    Hi All,

    My wife is currently filing in an application form and we've come to the personal statement bit, but after a few attempts we back to a blank piece of paper. I was wondering if anyone is willing to send a copy of a personal statement they have done previously so we could steel some ideas!

    Thanks

    might work...

    In the personal staement mentiuon achievements your wife may have, such as cpr or something like that. also mention past times and qualities that she poses eg good team player ect motivared

    Thats cheating !! lol

    you really need to tailor it to the job, so what is the post?

    its for an occupational therapist job

    Get the person spec and try to answer the essential requirements by responding with your wife's skills, whether professionally or personally,

    Yeah but people on here don't know your wifes qualities etc so it would be rather generic.

    like i mentioned i'm looking at getting a format rather than copying a personal statement! We know what we want to write! the peroblem we're having is writting the da*n thing!

    Is this the NHS Scotland generic application form? If so, do what choc says and just make up something matching each of the sections in the essential column of the person specification.

    I presume your NHS Scotland by the location in your profile!

    good listener, kind, considerate, sensitive to the needs of others, focused, motivated, driven
    all that kind of jazz
