Hi, we advise that you wear professional attire, a smart button down shirt or blouse paired with simple trousers. If you're still unsure, don't be afraid to ask your interviewer about the dress policy beforehand.

Hi, we submit a full enhanced DBS check which covers you to work with both adults and children.
It can vary as to how long it takes to come back. Sometimes it can take days but it also be up to 6 weeks (this is very rare). Hope this helps!

As a care assistant, you have many flexible work options.
With visits from as little as 30 minutes a week, you can choose between full-time or part-time work and even the days or times you’re available to work on a regular basis.

As a full-time or part-time care assistant, you can choose days or times you’re available to work on a regular basis.
As a live-in carer, your placements, usually a minimum of two weeks, are flexible and built around the needs of the customer. Many live-in carers choose to work weeks at a time and then enjoy a couple of weeks off. Again, you can tell us your availability and we can work around that.

After you apply and if you meet our criteria, we'll arrange a short telephone interview with you to get to know you better and to ask a few key questions.
If you’re successful in this, we'll invite you to a face-to-face interview which will involve questions to see how you would handle certain situations. Your interviewer will also go through your application and paperwork to ensure everything is there, so please remember to bring your ID and all other requested documentation.
