ENA workplace and culture

Our workplace and culture

A live-in care job is not your typical 9 to 5 role – it requires a special kind of person who always has the interests of others at heart. You have the opportunity to get to know your client on a personal level, spending weeks at a time caring for them in their home, which is one of the things that can make live-in care so rewarding.

Being a carer for ENA is a demanding but also highly-rewarding career. Without live-in carers, people who wish to live independently, or people who need specialist assistance, would be unable to.

We consider our staff to be ‘care champions’ who promote dignity in care at all times, and we are really proud of all our ENA carers. They are the very heart of our company and we would be nowhere today without them. It is a career where no two days are ever the same and will introduce you to interesting and inspirational individuals. It is also highly flexible around your life and commitments.

If you are caring, empathetic, respectful, dedicated & committed, we would love to hear from you.

Pay

You will be paid between £500–£700 per week based on the placement you are assigned by your case manager, according to your skills and previous experience.

If you are new to care or have very little experience, you would be placed with a lesser needs client. This means you would be paid towards the lower end of the scale.

If you have more experience and skills that would be beneficial to a higher or complex needs client, you would be paid towards the higher end of the scale.

Your pay rate will be agreed with you by your case manager before each placement.
