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.
“I found that once the children had left home I had a lot of time on my hands. I wanted to do something to help people who really required it. I love being a carer, I currently look after two ladies who are both lovely and we have a great laugh”
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.

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.

“I’d been (unsuccessfully) doing totally random jobs for 20 years, & not enjoying it. In 2013, when I started caring, I found my calling. I make a genuine difference to people’s lives. I show respect to people that have a lifetime of experience and have lived! I make someone’s life a better place, & that’s why I do what I do”.
