We are pleased to offer care worker sponsorship for people in the EU to join our teams as part of the UK government’s new Health and Care Worker visa. Agincare is a UK Visas and Immigration Licensed Sponsor with opportunities across England in our live-in care services, and we welcome EU applicants that meet our eligibility criteria.
Alin Petrescu, from Brasov in Romania, is a great example of how successful UK care jobs for Romanian carers can be with Agincare. Following time in the Romanian army, Alin started work with as a live-in care worker in November 2016. Alin initially only intended to stay in the UK for a few months, but four promotions and five years later, Alin is now proud to hold the post of Project Operations Support Manager with Agincare.
Alin takes up the story:
I worked as a live-in care worker for my first year in England, and I can say that I enjoyed every minute, I still even keep in contact with the family of the person I supported.
The first two weeks training shaped my career in care, made me love the job and built in a desire to make a difference. I have enjoyed all my time with Agincare in every position, I tried to do my best and let my work and facts speak for me.

Agincare is currently recruiting Live-in Care Assistants to move in, care for and support a client in their own home, helping them to remain as independent as possible. The role involves assisting with medication, providing companionship, support with personal care such as bathing and dressing, and domestic tasks like cleaning and preparing meals. Agincare Live-in Care Operations Director Sam Mayes said:
Agincare International has recruited many hundreds of care workers from the EU, and is now looking to sponsor more people to join our teams. We’re inviting EU citizens in Romania to begin or further their career in care with Agincare and realise their dreams of working in the UK; so if you, or someone you know is interested then please find details on our website.
The role is a one year sponsorship in England, with Agincare retaining the right to extend this once successful applicants have passed the probationary period. Agincare will provide a full package of support throughout the process and guarantee care assistants 30 weeks of work a year in line with sponsorship requirements, providing a guaranteed income for the year. Agincare International also provides sponsorship opportunities for European citizens already working in England on any visa (except for Visitor visa) and have suitable health and social care qualifications.
We are an award-winning family-run care provider that was established over 35 years ago, and are now one of the largest independent care providers in England.
