Work experience

Sep 2007Apr 2008

Stable Hand

Washington Riding School

This position was a voluntary one.

I first heard of the Washington riding School through my youth worker.

The Washington Riding School specialises in the excerise and physiotherapy of disabled people.

I contacted the school out of interest initially, I was invited along for the day to have a look around.

I had a chat with the owners to see whether there was anyway I could become involved on a voluntary basis. The owners said that there were positions available, and for my work I would be awarded with rides.

I worked at the centre every Sunday at 8am - 5pm

My role consisted of:

  • Walking
  • Grooming
  • Mucking out
  • Water replenishment
  • Saddling up in preparation for users
  • Supervisory spotting and horse leading
  • Supervision of Instructors

I am an outgoing, conscientious individual, with time keeping being of upmost importance to me, several positions have required I rise early in the mornings and work long days.

I am always looking to apply myself to a job where I can strive to better or realise my full potential.

I work with younger people and peers in Sea Cadets in a leadership role. This itself comes with responsibility, but feel I manage successfully.

Work experience has seen me take on voluntary positions, which I have become involved in through youth work, both instances were involving animals with the latter aiding the rehabilitation of people with disabilities.

I have also achieved my level three cook stewards badge which is a cooking course. Along with my Seamanship badge which is all to do with ropework which is associated with being at sea.

Writerstores which is all administration, they are specializations within the cadet corps. Competent crew and supervised cockswin which are (pulling), canoeing which are water courses.

I am in the Northern AreaSea Cadet Band. I have achieved my drummers badge; where the assessor chooses three drum routines that you have to be able to play, my buglers badge which again the assessor chooses three random tunes that you have to be able to play correctly to achieve the qualification.

Being in the Sea Cadets and part of the band, have ensured my ease to be part of a team at all times.
