Wanted: Live-in carers with a rural streak!
About our clients
Many of our clients live in (semi-)rural areas, in secluded cottages or on farms. Some may appreciate a hand looking after animals like like dogs, goats, or chickens.
Do you love the countryside and would you enjoy working in a quasi rural setting? If you like getting your boots muddy, our clients love to meet you!
Ranging from £639.80 to £816.48 a week (pay rates as of 1 April 2020).
With Herefordshire being a rural county, many of our clients live in the countryside or in semi-rural villages. Some may keep a few farm animals. We are often looking for live-in carers who have some affinity with rural life and who would enjoy occasionally helping out with basic ‘outdoors’ chores, such as feeding the chickens, collecting eggs, and walking the dog.
We always match our live-in care clients with carers who have similar interests, and we find that many of our semi-rural clients love to be supported by a carer who feels comfortable in the countryside.
Do you love getting your boots muddy, bake a cake with freshly laid eggs, accompany your client to the weekly community coffee in the local village, take the dog for a walk in the hills or occasionally give the pony a bit of hay? Then we have several clients who would love to meet you!

You will need…
The right to live and work in the UK.
A valid driving licence and your own car.
References. We ask all candidates who have been offered a job to provide at least two references.
To complete an enhanced DBS (criminal record) check. We are obliged to check for a criminal record if we offer you a job, but previous offences by no means mean that we cannot employ you. Find out how we recruit people who have a criminal record.

You can expect…
Thorough training – we will make sure you are well prepared for the role.

Each day, you will have a three-hour break which you can spend as you please.
We offer competitive pay rates, ordinarily from £639.80 to £816.48 a week (pay rates as of 1 April 2020).
You are not alone – we are here to support you.
How to apply
We employ all our carers, which means that we are able to match our clients with a carer who they like and trust, and that you will have the benefits and security that come with employment.
If it so happened that the client you would like to support is no longer available, we would love to introduce you to other people who would appreciate you support. If you think you are the right person for the role, do not hesitate to get in touch with us!
