Is live-in care really for you?

If you already have professional experience in a care home, hospital or home care environment, great! If you haven’t worked in care before, but have experience of caring for a family member or friend – we have a limited number of roles available, please contact the team for more information. Please note that it is important that you are fluent in speaking, reading and writing in English.

We require flexibility in terms of location placement which could be anywhere within England or Scotland. You will meet people from all walks of life, including academia, business, politics, the farming community and the world of the arts. This is a great opportunity to get the feel of the countryside or experience city life.

You will also experience, first hand, the dramatic changes in temperature as we move through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. When you are not working, the UK is the perfect launchpad from which to explore the UK and Europe. Take a look at the Easyjet, Ryanair, Jet2 or Eurostar websites to see where it’s possible to travel from the UK.

To see if you have what it takes to become a Professional Live-in Carer please email us a copy of your CV. You will find all of our contact details under the contact us section.

Skills & experience

Your application will be in the safe hands of our recruitment team who will make contact with you to learn more about your skills and experience to ensure that you have what it takes to join our team. If for any reason you don’t meet the benchmark we are keen to stay in touch whilst you continue to develop your skills and experience. You won’t be expected to travel to the UK for interview. We’ll use Skype or Facetime so that you can virtually meet our team before making a decision.

References & checks

If we think you would make a great addition to our team we will make you an offer, which is subject to us receiving your references, and successfully clearing the police checks for England (DBS), Scotland (PVG) and also your countries of residence. The administration and cost of the DBS and PVG checks are covered by us. We recommend that you provide us with the checks from your countries of residence, although we can administer these for you if required. Where we undertake checks on your countries of residence we will fund half of the cost which is deducted from your first months’ pay. We also request two written and two verbal references.

“It was easier to apply than I imagined and I was made to feel welcome from Day 1.”
