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.
Our Overseas Recruitment Consultants have a wealth of knowledge in preparing you for a career as a live-in carer, and will support you throughout the application process. When you arrive in the UK, you will continue to receive our support from staying at our bespoke Carer Houses, from the UK Recruitment and DBS team, and our experienced Care Consultants, who all understand the journey you have taken before your arrival to the UK.
Unsure if you are eligible to work for us? Please note – only those with a British/EU Passport or a British Ancestry Visa may apply to become a carer. Consultus is unable to sponsor applicants or assist those needing to obtain a work visa.
