“Carers literally change lives” says Sara Taylor, Head of Recruitment for Consultus.

“I have experienced many positive changes within the care recruitment industry. The remarkable work live-in carers do on a daily basis is being identified, and I am proud to be part of this. We receive many applications from a wide range of candidates, whose experience and life skills are the foundations for becoming great care professionals. I have met applicants whose background has been in healthcare, teaching, hospitality or in many cases delivering relationship-led care for a friend or family member. We welcome applicants who are ready to start a new career in care or wish to continue developing their skills.”
