you need it.

Carer community 

We have a dedicated carers portal full of useful resources that will help you in your role, and you can connect and chat with fellow carers on our Christies Carers Facebook page. We also produce a newsletter to keep you up-to-date with the latest happenings at Christies Care.

Flexible working

 We work together to give you the work you need; to balance your flexibility with our client needs, so that everyone is happy.


What you will bring to the role

Our carers come from all walks of life but they all have one thing in common: a desire to care and to make a difference in the lives of others.

We are looking for dedicated, compassionate, reliable individuals with strong initiative and a friendly, helpful manner.

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.

What is a live-in carer’s job like?

Being a live-in carer is 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.

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

After going through our unique training programme you will have all the skills and expertise you need to provide medication management, mobility support including the use of lifting equipment, personal care and companionship.

You will also undertake light housekeeping duties which includes planning and preparing 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.

It’s important to do activities the client enjoys doing, taking part in their hobbies and interests together, and meeting with friends or family. This way we can make their lives as enjoyable as possible.
