Would you like to join a network of self-employed Live-in Carers that are transforming the lives of older people – helping them to stay connected to the people and places who make them who they are? We’re currently looking for self-employed carers for  private Live-in Carer job opportunities in Taunton.

At Elder, we understand that care is as much about making a difference, as making a living – and living well.  With our Carer Hub app, you’ll be free to browse and apply for placements that fit around your life. You can choose placements from £720 per week, access exclusive rewards for the care you provide, and get additional support from our dedicated team.

With Elder you’ll get:

  • A minimum weekly rate of £720 per week
  • Double pay on bank holidays, and if you’re happy to drive as part of your placement, you could get a monthly bonus of up to £200 too
  • Support with travel costs to and from your placement
  • The opportunity to join the carer loyalty programme. Your very first day of care will give you access to exclusive rewards that can help you stay healthy, reach your financial goals, and balance your work and personal time.
  • Full flexibility to choose who you care for as a live-in carer, and when, all of which can be easily managed in our online portal
  • Your own comfortable private space when working on placement, plus the cost of all meals covered
  • Dedicated  round-the-clock support from our expert support team, and a 24 hour placement helpline
  • Free access to an external E-learning platform, so you can grow your skills in specialist areas
  • Access to our referral scheme, paying £300 each to you and a friend after they join Elder and work for 14 days

Joining our platform is easy. Our simple online application form can be completed in minutes, and all of our onboarding process is fully-remote via phone and video call, and will be arranged at a time that suits you.

What you’ll need:

  • A real passion for improving the lives of older people
  • Ability to commit to placements for a minimum of 7 nights
  • A Basic Care Certificate – don’t worry if you don’t have one already, we can help you gain this qualification through our external e-learning partner
  • A valid clean enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check in England & Wales or PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups membership) in Scotland (we can help you get one if you don’t have one)
  • Professional experience working in adult or elderly care
  • Ability to provide 2 professional references that Elder can verify
  • Good level of spoken English and the right to work in the UK
