Our Carer Selection Process
Once we have received your pre-selection questions and you have successfully met the criteria, our Recruitment Team will contact you to discuss your skills and experience. Having spoken to you, we will send you an online application form to complete. We will be talking to you while you complete your form to make sure we have all the information we need, including your last 10 years' work history and details for us to apply for two written and two verbal references.
From there, we will book you on to our four-day induction training programme, based in Tonbridge, Kent, at a cost of £90. We will contribute towards the cost of your travel expenses, up to £50.
Your first day of induction training will include a welcome by the Recruitment Manager and an informative group discussion providing advice and guidance on becoming a live-in carer and what to expect from your Consultus journey. You will then be greeted by our DBS Department who will support you through the DBS process, followed by a one-to-one interview with the Care Consultant who will start matching your skills and experience to our clients' needs. Once you have successfully completed your training, you will receive a Consultus Certificate to take away with you.
We also have Carer House accommodation available to you, close to our Head Office. Our Carer Houses offers spacious rooms, cooking and washing facilities; a lovely home-from-home environment with breakfast included at a cost of £33 per night.
