It is important for us to provide stability to our people; all of our healthcare professionals have minimum hours guaranteed in their contracts, giving them the security of a steady income.

The Local Branch:

Your local team is located in Britain’s oldest recorded town, Colchester. We’re a short walk from the local castle and Colchester Town train station, easily accessible from the surrounding areas.

We cover a variety of local areas, from Braintree and Halstead over to the coastal towns of Clacton-on-Sea and Harwich, so those fish and chip lunch breaks at the seaside could become a reality!

Person Specification

We are looking for individuals who can be flexible with their availability, with regular and short notice shifts on offer. Having a driving license and access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, to enable ease of travelling between your clients.

You’ll need the right to live and work in the UK, plus previous professional care experience within a UK setting.
