Many people experience difficulty taking care of themselves, and this can be an emotional situation for them. As a carer, you have the ability to make a real difference to a person’s life by making things easier for them and giving them a happy home environment.
Whether you’re already a carer and looking for a new role, or you’ve never worked in care and are thinking about a career change, we want to hear from you. We regularly advertise for a number of carer jobs in the UK.
Carers need to be genuinely compassionate people. As you will be going into people’s homes to deliver their care, you will need to be sensitive to their individual preferences, and quickly gain their trust.
Often, our customers and their families come to us during times of challenge or crisis; your role will involve providing reassurance alongside an excellent level of service, so that you can put their minds at ease.
If you are motivated by helping others and are excited by the prospect of a role that makes a difference, then you should consider becoming a carer.

Many carers find their roles highly fulfilling. You can expect to develop close relationships with the people in your care and their loved ones. Some of our service users have commented that their carers feel like an extended part of their family.
Being a carer is also a very flexible role. Many parents with young children become carers, because of the ability to work around school hours. Whether you are searching for carer jobs that are full or part time, you’re very likely to find a role that works for you.
When you’re a carer, no two days are the same. Carers have a range of duties, from personal care, to helping with errands and preparing meals. You will have plenty of things to keep you occupied throughout the day and enough time to do your job well.
We don’t necessarily look for care experience when we recruit our carers. Full training and investment in your professional development is provided. What we’re looking for is the right attitude. We want to work with carers who are enthusiastic and genuinely passionate about making a difference in peoples’ lives.
Many of the adults in your care will be vulnerable or experiencing health and mobility problems. We need people who can demonstrate patience, kindness and care. We would love to hear from you if you’re a truly compassionate person who finds taking care of others rewarding.
As you will be spending a lot of time on your feet, we look for energetic people who are eager to perform a variety of tasks throughout the day. If you previously worked in an office environment, for example, and found it quite restrictive, you might be more suited to this kind of role.
