Working for Oxford Aunts Care
It’s our carers that really make us stand out. We would not be able to provide the highest quality of care without our dedicated and experienced ‘Aunts’ and we are always looking to add more to our team.
Being a live-in carer is an incredibly rewarding role. It also offers flexibility around your availability, lifestyle, working holiday or travel plans. Because of this many of our carers return to us to undertake assignments again and again.
As a carer for Oxford Aunts Care you must be of good character, well presented, fit and active, organised and able to work alone and on your own initiative. You must also be kind, patient and prepared to respect and fit in with the client’s lifestyle. In return you will get a rewarding and enjoyable experience helping someone to remain living in their own home.
At Oxford Aunts Care we fully support our carers through an experienced head office team. We provide free dormitory-style accommodation when you do your induction training, as well as ongoing training and supervision during your assignment. And, with Europe on your doorstep, travel and holidays are affordable and easy.
Benefits of working for Oxford Aunts
Excellent pay rates and holiday pay
You can earn between £7,812 and £8,484, plus holiday pay for 12 weeks’ work.
We make things easy for you by deducting your UK taxes at source and paying weekly straight into your bank account.
Accommodation whilst working
Accommodation is provided whilst working on assignment - a great way to augment your cash flow and savings.
Great time off
Whilst working on assignment, you get three hours off on each day and in longer-term jobs you also get eight hours off one day a week from the third week onward.
UK police check (DBS) paid for by us
We’ll pay the cost of your UK police check.
Induction training plus perks
During this time, you can acquire the specialist knowledge and skills needed for live-in care work. You’ll get a signed certificate of attendance when placed into your first placement. We’ll pay you an allowance towards travel costs from your London base or UK airport and you will get 5 free nights in our dedicated Oxford Aunts house during your induction training.
Paid ongoing training sessions
We’ll pay you for attending our ongoing training sessions because we think it’s important for you to have every opportunity to update and improve your skills.
Friendly and professional support
Our team of nurses and care managers will be on hand when you need advice and support. We also operate a 24-hour on call service in case of emergencies for our existing care workers - so you’ll never be without expert backup.
Job satisfaction, interesting clients and varied locations
This is a rewarding job that allows you to enable people to remain living in their own homes and to continue enjoying their life. You’ll meet people from all walks of life, including academia, business, politics and the world of the arts. Most of our assignments are within a 60 mile radius of Oxford, in county towns and the countryside, as well as in London, Bristol and Bath. You won’t have a better opportunity to get the feel of the English countryside or to experience city life!
Flexible working patterns
You can work longer-term on assignment or work for a few months and then go travelling or go home and return and work for us again. Last year a large proportion of the people who worked for us were ‘returners’ - many of whom have been with for us for years.
Thinking of travelling around the UK and Europe?
Oxford Aunts Care offers unique assignments that provide a UK base, holiday funds and generous time off to travel. Oxford is a beautiful city to explore and it’s also the perfect launchpad from which to explore the UK and Europe. Take a look at the easyJet, Ryanair or Eurostar websites to see where it’s possible to travel from the UK.
Exploring Oxford and the surrounding area
Oxford is home to the atmospheric Oxford University which is clustered around medieval streets with many museums and attractions to explore. You could also try punting on the river or visit the many Cotswold towns nearby such as Bath, Cheltenham, Marlborough and Stratford-upon-Avon.
