Benefits of Live in Care role
You are able to fit work in with your own lifestyle and make your own choices. Typical work patterns are two weeks on an engagement; this may be longer depending on the Client’s requirements and your availability. So you really can vary the period of time that you work.
You can be based anywhere in the UK including Scotland as we have Clients located all over the country. This can also give you the opportunity to visit parts of the country you have never been to.
As a self-employed worker you will be paid directly by the Client or their representative and receive daily instructions from them.
Experienced Personal Carers enjoy excellent rates of pay, starting from £65 per day. The daily rate depends on the level of care needed by the Client and your skills and experience.
If you would like to be considered, please complete our online questionaire. If we think you have the skills and attributes required we will contact you to arrange a telephone interview. Should you be sucessful at this stage, we will then ask you to come to meet us for a more formal interview and complete an enhanced DBS check.
