Name: Sirus

Current position: Construction Painting (Decorative Occupations) Intermediate Apprentice with Cornwall Community Action Network, a social enterprise company that helps young people get started in work, build their skills and move on to further employment.

Types of Employment/Apprenticeship I'm looking for, and what I hope to get from it:

I am looking for an employer who can offer me an opportunity to use my existing painting and decorating skills and enable me to continue with my apprenticeship, broaden my construction knowledge and longer term, enable me to move on to the advanced apprenticeship.

What I can offer an employer:

I am dedicated and committed to becoming a painter and decorator, and am working very hard to get qualified. I am a good timekeeper and although I do not have my own transport, I make every effort to be in work on time or early. I am able to work well as part of a team or as an individual, I am well organised and work effectively and safely.

Skills and abilities (what I've learnt, what I can do):

I can prepare surfaces to receive primers, undercoats and gloss. I can use filler and prepare plaster work for emulsions. I have a good understanding of health and safety and have passed my CSCS test. I can use wood stain and preservatives, apply emulsions by brush and roller, apply primers, undercoats and glosses to a variety of surfaces including internal doors, windows, etc.

General Employment Skills (attitude, commitment, personal qualities, timekeeping, reliability etc.):

I have an excellent attitude to work and produce good quality work within deadlines given. I am reliable and very keen to learn new things. I live independently so I need to have good organisational skills and take responsibility for my own actions – I apply these to my work every day.

Work Experience (any work done, employment, projects/training, voluntary work, where):

I have recently been involved in local community projects and have enjoyed these immensely. I have learnt to keep my work areas clean and tidy, even more so after working in public areas. I have had some retail experience and benefited from working with customers.
