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:
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.
Any formal 'job description' will be provided by individual clients. You will work directly for the client, not for the agency, so you should be prepared to arrange your own tax and National Insurance contributions.
Consultus does not offer placements to couples and there are fewer requests for male carers.
