Minimum requirements

We look for carers with at least 6 months of professional caring experience. We do also accept applications from individuals with experience of caring for a loved one.

SSSC registration is required to join our team.

You'll need to feel comfortable helping service users with limited mobility. If you do not have a current Moving and Handling certificate, we will support you with training during your induction period.
