Skills and experience required

SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE REQUIREDOur selection process is very thorough. Once you have satisfied the Otus recruitment team that you have the relevant experience (a minimum of twelve months live-in care experience living with a client in his or her own home), you will be sent an application form to complete. All successful candidates will undergo a rigorous interview process and be asked to provide personal references for the live-in care work they have undertaken.

Initially you will have a telephone interview and if successful at this stage, you will then attend a face-to-face interview with our Managing Director, Paul Isaacs. All identities are confirmed, references and certificates of training verified, and most importantly an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, including a check against the Protection of Vulnerable Adults (POVA) list will be completed.  Previous client references will be sought.  Additionally, we ask that all registered carers arrange their own liability insurance and check that this is in place before starting with a client.

As you will be aware, the job of being a personal carer is very broad – no two clients are exactly the same – some clients lead a very active full life and you will meet their family, friends and mix in their social circle. Others will need more home based care and companionship and reassurance. As a registered Otus Live-in carer your role will be to provide support and care, allowing them to gain the most from independent living at home.
