Employed Live in Carer £585-£735 per week

Nationwide, Nationwide, United Kingdom, Employed (PAYE)


To provide care and support for elderly or disabled people in their own homes on a 24 hour, 7 day week, live-in basis.

Duties will include support with all aspects of daily living such as housekeeping, helping people to wash, dress and undress, toileting, bathing, meal preparation and prompting medication.

Even though as our employees you will be regularly supervised, you will usually be on your own with the service user in their house, so previous care or nursing experience is essential. Ability to drive is preferred, but not essential, as many of our clients live in rural areas.

What we need from you

Apart from being eligible to work in the UK, you must be of good character, well presented, fit and active. You must also be kind, patient and prepared to respect and fit in with the client’s lifestyle. You need to be organised and able to work alone and on your own initiative.

As a live-in carer you will need, as a minimum, some previous experience in a caring capacity and the ability to run a home and cook to a reasonable standard. Duties include planning menus, shopping, cooking, light housework, plus driving and attending appointments or outings with your client. You will also be expected to give some assistance with washing, dressing, bathing and personal grooming. If you have previous care work experience or a nursing background then your duties might also include assistance with complex personal or emotional care needs, depending on your aptitude and skills.
We will also need you to meet our person specification and be available to work for a minimum of 2 weeks.

 Working Hours & Time Off

You will be working for 7 days per week and can expect to be available to the client from 7am-10pm per day, although the work will not be fully demanding for the whole of this period. You can expect to have at least two breaks of 2 / 3 hours per day.  A Daily Average Hours Agreement will be discussed with you prior to commencement and a copy of discussions sent to you.

Food, Accommodation & Travel Expenses

Your food and accommodation is provided by the client 

Monthly Pay

Current live-in care salary £585-£735 per week.
Salary varies due to complexity of needs with all bank holidays at double pay.

Induction Training

You will need to attend our two day onsite practical training, following a successful interview, before you start work so you should allow for this in your travel plans and expenditure.

We may pay travel expenses to and from the training; but your accommodation will be arranged at minimal cost.  Please note that your induction training is part of your application process; and we do not confirm employment until you pass.

Further Training & Supervision

When you start working for us, you will be required to undertake ongoing training. This will involve a combination of onsite courses, and e-learning modules. All training is mandatory, and carers who are unable to complete the required e-learning modules will be expected to attend  onsite days instead. All onsite training is paid at national living wage.

We currently run short courses from time-to-time on the following subjects:-
o Aids to Independent Living
o Dementia Management
o Management of Challenging Behaviour
o Manual Handling Update
o Elder Abuse Update

We also offer carers NVQ2 training in domiciliary care. You will have either a one-to-one supervision sessions every week and more formal  supervisions through the year.
