Christies Carers in their own words

Find out what’s it’s like working as a carer for the first time:

“Inspiring hope and confidence whilst providing care to another human being is very rewarding, adding joy and longevity to a life is priceless. It's very fulfilling to add value and help transform her life to the best of what can be done right now, to live to the fullest today”

Maria, Christies Carer

“The best thing about being a carer is knowing that I am making a positive difference to my clients' lives. I find myself in new and exciting places and scenarios all the time. I would definitely say take the leap of faith and see where the journey takes you. I have met so many incredible people and felt so good to know that I’m making a change. Once you have that feeling, it is hard to shake”

Kerry, Christies Carer

What is a live-in carer’s job like?

As a Christies Carer you will live in the home of your client or visit regularly as visiting care assistant, helping to deliver a person-centred care plan to enable them to live as independently as possible.

Our unique training programme will provide you with the skills and expertise to provide medication management, mobility support, including the use of lifting equipment, personal care and companionship.

You will also be required to undertake light housekeeping duties to include the planning and preparation of meals so, some basic cooking skills are essential. Some of our clients also have pets who you may help care for too but this will be discussed and agreed in advance of your placement.

Why you should choose to be a Christies Carer

Good rates of pay, flexibility and guaranteed earnings

We operate nationally providing home care to clients all around the country. You can dictate the length of time you work to help you fit your care job around your own life and we match each client carefully with their carer to ensure you both like and work well together.

Our award-winning training provides you with the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to be an outstanding carer

As a carer you will encounter many new circumstances. Your client may require hoisting or lifting equipment for mobility. You may need to change a catheter bag or your client may take 20 types of medication at a particular time and dose each day. Our award-winning training team instruct all our carers how to manage these and many other tasks during our intensive induction training programmes for both live-in and hourly carers so you are ready for your first client.

Ongoing advice and support

Being a carer carries a lot of responsibility. Our Care Management Team is on hand day and night with advice and information to ensure you do not shoulder this alone. Our Local Area Advisors are also available to help you and can arrange a visit to you and your client whenever you might need it.

Carer community and connection

We offer a great community network amongst our carers with a newsletter to keep you up-to-date with stories, ideas and important information about your lives as Christies Carers. You can also connect and chat with fellow carers on our Christies Carers Facebook page .

Values, skills and attributes

What makes an outstanding Christies Carer?

Our carers come from all walks of life but what stands out amongst them all is a desire to care and to make a difference in the lives of others. We will provide you with all the training you need.

We are looking for dedicated, compassionate, reliable individuals with strong initiative and a friendly, helpful manner. Being a live-in carer or visiting care assistant can be a challenging and unpredictable job, but it is also an extremely rewarding position. Every day, when you care for someone, you will be making a huge difference to that person and their family; and sharing some extraordinary moments.

Carers can come from any background with any experience. Our domiciliary carers have been secretaries, bank managers, mothers, fathers, students, nurses, soldiers and teachers. Some have worked as carers previously, for visiting care agencies or care homes, and some have no professional experience at all.

As a Christies Carer you will receive essential support and training to equip you with care skills, confidence and ongoing guidance to help you do the best job you can.

  • We offer industry-leading training which is unmatched by other home care providers so we can be confident in offering our clients some of the best carers in the country.
  • Since the start of the pandemic, we have adapted our rigorous training courses to ensure they are COVID safe whilst maintaining the high-quality standards that all of our carers achieve. For full details on what to expect when you join our CPD accredited Induction training programme, read our Live-in Carer Jobs page
  • Our Care Management Team is there to make things easier for you helping you to adjust to life as a carer and supporting you in the day-to-day management of your client’s homecare plan. Whether you need advice about medication, guidance on how to cope with a client’s condition or just a general chat, our Care Management Team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you provide the best care, any time you need it.
