ENA is a family run business. We have 17 years' experience of training applicants to do live-in care work before being placed in work with one of our clients who lives an active and sociable lifestyle living in their own home.
As a live-in carer you would help the client with what they can't do for themselves such as personal care, light housework, shopping, cooking and driving the client's car when they get out and about.
NO PREVIOUS CARE EXPERIENCE REQUIRED although some experience of social work would be a distinct advantage.
WE ARE RECRUITING FOR THE FOLLOWING POSITIONS TO START ASAP:
- Live-in Carers (with or without experience) to work with one of our clients for 3 months or longer

One of our current vacancies:
We are currently looking for a live-in carer for a very popular client of ours who is a nice, gentle lady in her 80s. This client lives in Hertfordshire and likes to be active and independent. She enjoys taking a mornings walk, being involved in cooking meals, loves spending time in her garden and she is quite chatty as she has quite an active mind. This elderly lady also enjoys having friends round, going shopping twice a week, loves art and reading.
The ideal applicant for this position needs to be kind and patient, have a good sense of humour and be a cat lover - as this client is very fond of her cat. This is not just a companionship type job as carer needs to be willing to also assist with personal care, but prior care experience is not essential as we train. The position will also involve light housework, cooking and accompanying the client when she goes out. A valid driving licence is essential for this job.
