As the main local care providers to older people within their own homes for both private clients and the local authority, our client has an outstanding reputation locally.

  • Full-time & part-time hours available;
  • Bank hours are available for those that want flexible hours as and when;

It is essential that you have a full UK driving licence and have access to a vehicle due to the nature of the job.

Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience as our client provides excellent training. All their carers come from all walks of life, many just wanting a change of career.
