Job Description

Oxford and surrounding areas 

Are you looking for flexibility and the opportunity to spend more time caring for your client one-to-one?  At Oxford Aunts, we offer professional carers great rewards for providing high quality live-in-care to elderly people in their own homes.  Working shifts of up to and beyond 12 weeks to suit your lifestyle, you can maximise your earnings while providing the best possible care. 

We look after our Carers:

  • Great rates of pay (paid weekly) – you could earn up to £8,148 for 12 weeks of work
  • Flexible patterns of work to suit your lifestyle
  • Generous rest time in placement - 26 hours per week 
  • Free induction training with opportunities to further develop your knowledge through our ongoing training courses
  • Free accommodation in our dedicated carer house during training
  • Local 24/7 support from our experienced team
  • Free DBS check
  • We match the personalities and interests of our clients and carers, so you can enjoy life together

Your life-changing work will involve living with our clients, providing companionship and support with personal care, domestic tasks and housekeeping (cooking, washing, ironing, hoovering etc.) so our clients can live well in their own homes.  We offer longer placements which enable you to spend more time building a meaningful relationship with the person you care for.  Placements vary in length depending on your availability, allowing you the flexibility to fit your work pattern around your lifestyle choices.  


What your role will involve:

  • Meeting the individual care and life needs of the people you care for, as part of our experienced team of carers
  • You will have the opportunity to support people living with a variety of conditions, enabling you to further develop your skills and knowledge
  • All placements are within 70-miles of Oxford, so you must be able to travel to your client placement


What you’ll need:

  • Hands-on professional care experience and the confidence to work independently.  You may have worked as a live-in carer, domiciliary carer, care assistant, support worker, healthcare assistant or similar.
  • Good communication skills and ability to maintain clear and accurate records
  • To be reliable, compassionate and enthusiastic
  • Experience of working under pressure and staying calm in difficult situations.
  • Eligibility to work in the UK
  • As this is a live-in position you will need to commit to living with your client for a minimum of 10-12 weeks at a time, although many of our Carers choose to stay in their placements for longer periods before having an extended break


Providing quality care in people’s homes since 1967, Oxford Aunts is run by a team of experienced care professionals and is part of Sodexo and The Good Care Group.
