Training to work as a carer in the UK

Could you be a live-in carer in the UK?

Do you live in South Africa but want to work flexibly in the UK?

If you have a genuinely caring nature and can put the needs of others before your own, we could have the perfect job for you.

Do you care about other people? Do you want to help them lead an independent life and be the person they want to be? If you answered yes to these questions, then we want to hear from you! Being a live-in carer with Helping Hands gives you a fantastic opportunity to help another person live in the comfort of their own home. We’ll carefully match you with one of our customers to suit both of you and you’ll benefit from plenty of support.

At Helping Hands, we have been recruiting globally for over 20 years with notable success across South Africa, and we are now looking for carers to join our team. Our friendly training team will help you settle in to the UK lifestyle and culture, as well as teaching you everything you need to become a skilled carer. Once you have completed your training with us, you will have the full support of a local care manager, someone who will answer any questions and ensure that your well-being is looked after, so that you can concentrate on your customer!

Working as a live-in carer, you will be accommodated in the customers home making this a great career for our international carers. If you are caring and compassionate and have the right to work in the UK, we’d love to hear from you.
