Customer Experience at Elder

Sumi is in charge of making sure both carers and individuals are happy with their experience. She understands that carers often face certain problems of their own.

From care welcome packs to a support team who understand your needs, working with Elder is a great experience. Here's how you become an Elder carer:

  1. Online application

    If we like your online application, we invite you into the Elder office and ask you to bring any relevant paperwork in too.

    If your online application is successful, we'll arrange an interview and request you bring relevant paperwork
  2. The interview

    When you arrive, we’ll get you to fill out a care test before an interview with one of the Elder team. This is your chance to tell us more about you.
