Applying from Spain and Portugal
Consultus Care & Nursing welcomes carers from overseas who wish to enjoy a flexible approach to working in the UK.
In any one week, we have more than 600 carers looking after elderly and vulnerable people in their own homes throughout the UK. Working as a live-in carer is an excellent way to earn an income while visiting friends or family in the UK.
“Working in the UK as a live-in carer can open many career opportunities for you; Consultus offers a variety of award-winning training courses for carers to develop their skills and gain further confidence. You can continue to live the life you wish in Spain and return to the UK for work and visit family. As an expat myself I fully understand what is required to return to the UK for work and I will be more than happy to help you on your journey.” - Sandra Field

“Working as a carer has been a really positive experience. What I have enjoyed most is the constant surprise and diversity of the work. I have been able to build on previous skills whilst also learning new transferable skills along the way.” - Debbie Trowbridge
Living in Spain or Portugal and travelling to the UK for work may not be something that you would have thought of. However, we have many carers who do just that. They enjoy their lifestyle in Spain and Portugal, and find it convenient to travel to the UK during the winter months to work and see the country. The advantage of being a self-employed carer is that you can choose when you wish to work and for how long.
