Having worked for other care companies SureCare are by far the best with excellent rates of pay and hours to suit a good work life balance.”

You do not need to have previous experience in care as we provide full training:

  • Firstly our in-house induction course to introduce you to care and provide practical hands on training.
  • Then you will shadow runs to see how care is delivered by our experienced carers.
  • Then you are observed delivering care to give you the support until you feel confident to go onto the rota on your own or as part of a double handed team.
  • You will also be supported to complete the Care Certificate and will have access to our wide range of e-learning courses. As you progress you will have the opportunity to complete NVQs in care and specialise in particular areas of care that you enjoy the most.

You will need a car due to the locations of our clients, although travel between clients homes averages around only 5 to 10 minutes.
