If you are thinking of becoming a live-in care assistant then you have already taken the first step in making a difference to a person’s life.
Joining our live-in carer team offers you a chance to fulfil your call to care, with competitive pay, great benefits and flexibility as well as a fully supported care assistant training programme.
We are a family-owned business that has provided professional care since 1986.
As one of the largest care groups in England with over 3500 staff, there will always be support for the job you do.
We also provide you with full training so that you are equipped with nationally recognised qualifications as you embark upon, and progress your career in care.

Often you will need to adapt to situations as they arise but we are here to support you and ensure you have all the backing and reassurance to meet any challenges you may face. Ultimately, we need people who have a good heart.

We offer competitive rates of pay, of up to £695 per week (above average in our sector). Your accommodation and food will also be provided whilst in placement.
