UCAS personal statement employment sectionWatch this thread
That section is really there for mature students to explain their working lives, its not designed for school-leavers.
Hi, wondering if being employed by parents as a labourer on various houses (painting, wallpaper removing, digging bb pellets out of walls etc) would be a valid job to put in the employment section of my UCAS application
IF you think you've gained relevant skills from your work then you can put some emphasis on this in your Personal Statement. You can use your involvement in your parent's projects to show you can be hard working, willing to work as part of a larger team of other contracting staff and able to work towards deadlines (completion dates). It'd also be super relevant if you're interested in things like Architecture/Civil Engineering for example. The statement isn't very long so try not to use too much space on this if it's not going to be relevant though- don't force it in. What course are you applying for?
Good luck with your application!
