Support Worker requirements

We require all complex care workers to have around 3 months of experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one.

Access to your own vehicle is desirable, and the right to work in the UK is required.

Please note: To work in a care home in England from 11 November 2021, the post holder is required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 unless clinically exempt.
