Job description

We are looking for carers who would like to work 1 weekend in 3 instead of the industry standard every other weekend.

You can choose between full-time or part-time work; all you have to do is simply tell us your availability. Although we try to be flexible where we can, we do require you to be flexible with us too, that’s why we will require you to work **date/times required**. 

We can’t care for our customers if we don’t take care of our team so to make this possible, we offer: 

**Amend the below list to match your vacancy**

  • An excellent rate of £10.50.
