Management know their jobs and are extremely aware of the hard work and dedication of their staff . PA' s are excellent care providers of health care for their clients. It's more than just a job .

IWA is an excellent place to work. Once you do your job well you'll have the opportunity to go further. Happy environment to work like all places you will get the negative people who like to give out. Keep away from it. Good salary and pension benefits.
Pros
Outings with members
Cons
None

A good steady schedule with the necessity to apply attention to the job at all times. Management appeared rather detached from the reality of a day to day procedure. The managing was controlled with management absent from the on site location of transport routine.However my involvement with I W A was in conjunction with FAS where I don't have the opening to comment on all areas of the association
Pros
A good reference to transporting people in need
Cons
Not very accessible to reach if in need

Typical day working in the Irish Wheelchair Association is first we go out and pick up from the house and bring them to the centre. After we go and have a tea and chat then we play games until lunch time then back to playing games and taking with each other. There a final cup of tea and then we then it is home time. You learn how to take care of people. Best part of the job is interact with people.
Pros
Friendly to work with
Cons
Not enough hours

The HR department is a typical administrative offfice which deals with general administration and recruitment. Most of the time is spent dealing with customers both internal and external. the hardest part is when you have to deal with issues relating to sick off, pay, overtime and contract rollover..
Pros
Free car park
Cons
Normal working hours
