To be a good home carer, you must want to care. You must be compassionate and want to make other people’s lives better. So even if you have no previous experience but have a caring nature, we would still like to hear from you.
You must be legally allowed to work in the UK. If you are unsure if you can legally work in the UK please look at the home office website. Please note that we are unable to assist with, or sponsor, visa applications.
It is not vital that you have a driving license, though it is an huge advantage to both you and our clients. If you hold a non-EU driving license you can drive legally in the UK for up to 12 months from when you entered Great Britain (GB). This includes any small vehicle (such as a car or motorcycle) listed on your full and valid license. If you hold a license from any other EU country you can drive any type of vehicle listed on your valid license, however some insurance companies in the UK may not cover you when driving for a client unless you change this to a full UK license. For more information please visit the government pages on driving.
Our live-in care clients need to understand you and you need to be able to understand them. So we need to know that you can speak and understand English well. We will carry out a telephone interview with you to help us judge this.
