    Hi,

    I am Rachel I want to find a Admin job. I suffer from Parkinson. Hands and legs shake....so cant walk long distances. Happy to sit and do a desk job. I am in croydon. I want a disability friendly company / Employer list . Then I can perhaps approach them as ask for a 4 to 6 weeks of unpaid work trail. This would give me work experience (Admin job, Hr Assistant job). When the tablets dont work the hand shake looks scary. Sooner or later the tablet does kick in. Then i do maximum then. How do i get a advisor to help me. There has to be something I am missing. I cant see why its taking me so long to find work. Thank you.

    Rachel
