Join Our Team

Being a live-in carer is a special career. We truly value our dedicated team of carers, and we recognise that it takes exceptional people to do such a demanding yet rewarding job.

We are always keen to hear from people who are interested in joining our care team.

First and foremost, our carers are compassionate, caring, and thoughtful people who share our values and outlook on life.

There are many advantages to live in care jobs. Not only do you get to care for some lovely people, but we pay an attractive salary, and with your accommodation and food paid for the majority of the year, you will have more of your pay left over to spend on other things.

Of course, the role will involve living away from your own home. This works well for many of our carers – some alternate live in care with short stays with family or friends, while others combine their work with travel.

You don’t need to have professional qualifications to join our team. We provide an extensive induction to teach you the necessary skills. We also believe in continuous learning; therefore, we provide ongoing training to complement the regular visits and ongoing communication. We want you to feel fully supported and comfortable in your role.

Being a carer takes a remarkable kind of person

There are many attributes and skills that we look for in our carers. You will need to:

  • Have a positive outlook on life
  • Be caring, kind, compassionate, and empathetic
  • Enjoy striking up conversation with people (which will require a very good standard of English)
  • Be experienced in making good home-cooked food

While many of our carers do have driving licences and own their own car, this is not essential, as we can make alternative travel arrangements so you and your client can get out and about.

We value our carers and reward their hard work

We want to attract the very best carers therefore it’s important to us that our package is one of the best in the industry.

Working for Ashridge Care home means that you will join a caring and close-knit team. You will also receive:

  • One of the best rates of pay across the industry
  • A monthly satisfaction bonus based on client feedback
  • Pay that increases the longer you stay with us
  • Holiday pay to ensure you are able to take a break
  • Comprehensive and ongoing training within a nurturing community
  • Ongoing support whenever you need it, on the phone or in person
  • Accommodation options if you need assistance during your time away from the role

If you think you’ve got what it takes to brighten up someone’s day, we’d love to hear from you. Call us or send an email to recruitment@ashridgehomecare.co.uk.
