Becoming a live-in carer in the UK can be a great way of experiencing rewarding work in another country. You can meet new people and travel, while doing something meaningful. If you are eligible for a working holiday visa (tier 5), dual citizenship or ancestry visa you are likely to be able to work for ENA in the UK.

Live-in care jobs are ideal for saving money to travel and are perfect for recent graduates and globe-trotters, as well as those wanting to visit the nation of their ancestors.

Our recruitment team understand the doubts you may have about moving to a new country for work, and will walk you through the process to ensure you feel supported every step of the way. Finding work in a new country can be tricky if you don’t know where to start, which is why we will assist you with your paperwork before you are invited to attend training at our UK head-office based in Hertfordshire, just outside London.
