• Care Job Requirements

      Our live in carers come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some have had a long career in nursing or care, while others have experience of caring for family members and take advantage of our training opportunities.

      At Consultus you are treated as an individual and your skills, needs and preferences are always taken into account before we assign you to a client.  In return, we ask that you demonstrate:

      • Dedication
      • Reliability
      • Compassion
      • Common sense
      • A commitment to provide the highest standards of care
      • Fitness and energy
      • Good humour
      • Adaptability
      • Sociability

      Whilst we have no formal age restrictions, given the considerable responsibility of caring for a client, we do look for maturity and a certain level of 'life experience'. You should also be physically fit and healthy to enable you to assist clients with their mobility and balance, and to work long hours for at least two weeks at a time.

      Carers are self-employed and are paid directly by the Client, and receive daily instructions from them.  They are responsible for their own tax and National Insurance contributions under Self Assessment.

      Consultus does not offer placements to couples and there are fewer requests for male carers.
