What you'll need

We look for carers with at least 3 months of caring experience or experience caring for a loved one. We do also accept applications from individuals with experience in caring for a loved one. However, we're not just looking for clinical experience - we also want candidates to demonstrate occasions where they have exhibited our core values of positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness.

If you do not have a current Moving and Handling certificate, we will support you with training during your induction period.

The right to work in the UK is a must-have, as is access to a smart device. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial but is not a requirement.

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

Flexi Pay!

Instantly access up to 50% of your current shifts value, even on weekends and bank holidays!
