A Career with Consultus as a Live-in Carer

As a live-in carer, you will provide one-to-one care to our clients in the comfort of their own homes. You will be there to offer  support to enable them to remain living independently in their own homes. Duties include (but are not limited to) organising daily activities, preparing nutritious meals, light housekeeping, and personal care. Some of our clients may have specialised conditions. Your care, companionship and expertise will be valued. As a carer your dedication will support our clients to get the most out of life, and offer peace of mind to their families.

Consultus offers you a career to suit your lifestyle. Your availability is up to you; choose when and where you would like to work with the benefit of UK travel allowances. 

You can expect to earn between £749 and £1092 per week (£107 to £156 per day)

Bank holiday days are paid at double the daily rate - £214 to £312 per day

Plus enhanced pay for night calls

Every carer will have their own private room in the client's home, Wi-Fi access and, in some cases, the use of a vehicle for eligible drivers.

You will be matched carefully to your clients, right down to your hobbies and interests so the time you spend with your clients will not only benefit them, but also you.

Assignments are available now; we have a range of flexible rotas to choose from all over the UK.
