About you

We're looking for people who have at least 3 months paid professional experience care or have cared for a loved one. You'll need a valid certificate in Moving and Handling and the right to work in the UK. You will need a smart device with internet access to pick up shifts and submit timesheets via our app, HealthForceGo. On top of experience, we expect all of our carers to be able to tell us of a time they have exhibited our core values of: positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness. You'll need to live by these values whenever you're at work. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.
