Our Guaranteed Income Agreement Contract is an industry first, and we believe this will help you to agree on hours that suit you and get paid consistently every month. But if you’re happy to have a zero-hours contract because it suits your lifestyle, that’s fine too. Our branch care managers will discuss your working preferences with you and go from there.
All we need from you is a full UK driving license with access to your own car and the desire to care for others, we can teach you the rest. Working as a care assistant isn’t always the easiest job, but we promise that it will be one of the most rewarding.
A driving licence and access to a vehicle is essential due to the nature of the role.
