Like the people we care for, our care and support workers are all individuals, with their own unique personalities, and skills but some of their brilliant qualities include:
At Be Caring, our culture is so important to us. We live and breathe our values, so kindness, compassion, and dedication are key qualities we look for in our future carers – not just previous experience!
Skills and know-how can be taught (which is where our brilliant training schemes come in!) but the fundamentals of what it takes to be an incredible care worker come naturally.
The care sector offers some of the most rewarding and meaningful careers out there, but there are also lots of other benefits to working for us too!
We’ll pay you above the National Minimum Wage (NMW) for an adult over 25. Meaning that you’ll earn more than your ‘age related’ NMW pay rate, often paid in retail or other sectors. So, if you’re working as a carer, and choose to study towards any qualification in Health and Social Care, you’ll earn more than £8.21 per hour while you work to gain experience and study.
If you’re under 17, you could earn £4.00 per hour more than the base-line hourly NMW rate for your age! Even better, you can work towards a formal qualification (such as your NVQ level 2 or 3) at the same time, at no additional cost to you – so it’s a great debt-free option for furthering your education.
We have worked hard to create a safe, open and inclusive culture and we are only as good as our people. As an employee-owned social enterprise, we value the differences that people bring from all backgrounds and communities, so regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, disability, social status or religious beliefs, we would love to here from you.

That’s right – we’ve won awards recently for our fantastic business culture, and also for our work as an employee-owned organisation.

Our communities have the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential in all aspects of life.
