Application Process

Anyone who is over 18 years old, female or male with good English communication skills are welcome to become Live-in Carer in the United Kingdom. Previous experience in a nursing and/or caring field is preferred but this is not essential (for ladies) as full training will be provided. However, you must be patient, enthusiastic and hardworking with a good level of English.
To apply, please send your application with your CV (word doc or pdf format) including your telephone number(s), E-mail address(es), Skype address, citizenship, educational background, and employment history.

Please remember your English language knowledge and communication skills will be checked. So, it is very important to talk at the beginning of the recruitment process. If your English is good, appropriate, acceptable, then there will be a phone job interview arranged for you. Our colleagues in the UK office will call you to make a 10-20-minute long job interview with you. At that stage not only your English communication and comprehension skills are checked but your personality and your attitude, your commitment towards the Live-in Carer job. You will also be asked about the job role of the Live-in Carer, your motivation, your carer experience, and other typical job interview questions are asked, too. The job interview is an inquiry whether you are suitable for the position to be a Live-in Carer in the UK.

After the successful interview you will be invited to a 5-day ’Monday-to Friday’ training and selection course. According to the current regulations in the UK, applicants have to attend and successfully pass a training and selection course to be offered a Live-in Carer job.

At the training you can expect to be with approximately. 10-20 fellow candidates from all over England, Europe and the world. Hostel style accommodation is provided next to the training centre. It is equipped with microwave, fridge, and TV. The toilet and the shower are in the rooms.

The training course is held by proficient ex-carers with first hand experience of the role. It will cover all aspects of being a Live-in Carer e.g. moving and handling the patient, safety, first aid, communicating with the patient, medication, paper work, basic cooking, etc. The day starts at 9am and finishes at 5pm with 15 minute breaks and lunch will be provided. There will be presentations and discussions. Questions are always welcome.

The applicant will be asked on personal interviews, and, of course, you have to fill in test sheets, too. The applicant can list his preferences about the placement e.g. location such as the area in the UK you wish to work, the type of conditions you want to or don’t want to work with, the gender and the age group. For example if you don’t like cats, then we will place you somewhere where there are no cats. Your preferences are taken into account to find the suitable placement for you. However, too many preferences will make finding a suitable placement difficult.

You must successfully pass the training course to be offered a post as a Live-in Carer. After the training we suggest you to travel back to your home country as the necessary paperwork needs up to 2-4 weeks to be processed. As soon as your application processed including your criminal record certificate you will be called and offered a placement. Once you are happy with the placement offered, you will then be able to start work. The length of placement is all dependent upon the circumstances and your particular requirements. Your travel to and between your placements within the UK will be paid, and you will be entitled to paid holidays, sick pays, etc., according to the labour laws in the UK.

The training is free of charge, and there is no recruitment or agency fee at all. However, you have to invest in your journey to the UK to attend the training, and the accommodation costs altogether GBP 40 for 5 nights during the 5-day course. You can expect to be with around 10-20 candidates from all over England and Europe. You will stay in hostel style accommodation next to the training centre. It is equipped with microwave, fridge, and TV. The toilet and the shower are in the rooms.

The training is free of charge, and there is no recruitment or agency fee at all.
