We are looking for Live-In Carers to support our clients across England, we have various Live-in care opportunities available in areas such as the North West, Midlands and Southern England.

We put our customers at the heart of everything we do. We know that enabling people to continue living in the place they feel most comfortable can help them enjoy healthier, more fulfilling lives. Previous UK care experience is required for this role - this may be professional experience as a carer or live-in carer or un-paid care experience supporting loved ones.

As a Live in Care Assistant, you will be responsible for ensuring that our customers receive the very best standards of care and support. You will be living with the client for a set amount of time, making sure that they feel comfortable and happy within their own home, ensuring that they can live as much of an independent life as possible. It is a great opportunity to hone in on your care skills and develop a relationship with the customer that can be very rewarding.

Live-in care opportunities run for varying durations from 2 weeks on/2 weeks off to up to 3 months in a placement followed by time off. We will work with you to identify the opportunities that suit both location and duration requirements as well as being a good match for those we care for.

Our pay rate range is reflective of our tiered structure and the complexity of the client's care needs, exact weekly pay will depend on the package you are assigned and may vary when you move to new clients.
