After being carefully matched with a customer that shares your hobbies and interests, you will then be ready to go and make a huge difference to someone’s life.
First of all, we need to make sure you have the right to work in the UK, but once you have joined us as a valued member of our team, you’ll benefit from:
- Flexible work with regular breaks and time off between placements
- Free accommodation and food whilst you’re on placement
- Up to 28 days of paid holiday a year, plus pension contributions

As the largest provider of live-in care in the UK, we have a huge range of placements that are available right now in the South West area – which means that we have the best opportunities for you to work quickly and flexibly.
Work as a live-in carer where your job fits around you and your lifestyle, and you can earn up to £650 per week.
Comprehensive training programme
We’re proud to be the only home care provider endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care as well as being fully licensed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This stems from the compassionate nature of the carers that we employ as well as the intensive training programme that we provide.
Prior to your first placement, we will provide you with a fully-detailed training programme with a range of modules including manual handling, health & safety, safeguarding, equality & diversity, medication support and many more.
As the leading dementia specialists in the UK, we will also provide detailed dementia training to ensure that you have the knowledge and understanding to support any customer living with dementia to live as independently as possible.
