Jobs after retirement

Age doesn't matter to us. A warm heart does.

Could you help someone to live independently at home? If you’re looking for work after retirement offering a strong purpose and chance to meet new people, a job in home care could be just for you.

Some of the best carers around are often those who come to the role later in the life. Bringing many life experiences, whether through work, travel or raising a family, many retirees and people over 50 are choosing to pursue a career in care.

Working as a carer is a flexible role that offers fulfilling experiences alongside an extra income. No previous experience or qualifications are needed as we provide all the training you need together with ongoing dedicated support.

We welcome applications from adults of all ages, from 18 years and over.  Apply today to join our age-friendly, family-run company.
