    Work with us

    If you feel Care Extra and Care Extra Plus are the kind of companies you would like to work with, we would like to hear from you. We are always keen to recruit people of quality. Due to the type of work, hours are flexible. We are looking for people wanting both part time work and full-time work.

    We pay above average for the care sector as we believe our workers are our most valuable resource. All appointments are subject to satisfactory interview, references and DBS check (formerly Criminal Records check).

    A full driving licence and access to a vehicle is desirable but not essential as we try to match clients with workers from the same locality.

    Here’s what the workers say

    ‘I spent 20 years as a care worker always dissatisfied because I never had enough time to look after my clients. Then I heard of Care Extra Plus which is different from any other care agency, I can choose my clients, when I work, have enough time with clients, good pay and I now enjoy my work’

    ‘No wonder there is a shortage of care workers given the time given to do the work and the pay. On the point of nearly giving up the work, I found Care Extra Plus, which is a non- profit organisation that really cares about care workers as well as service users. No rushing from client to client, choice of clients, when I work and good pay’  

    ‘I’ve always liked the idea of working for myself, but I’m not good at administration and I always worried about where I’d find the clients. Care Extra Plus takes away both worries for me – they find me potential clients, invoice them for my work and collect the money. I can just concentrate on the care work that I’m good at’

    ‘Although we’re all self-employed, we’re not alone. We all know and trust each other, and if I want to go on holiday I know that I have cover for the ladies I look after. And not just cover – but someone I know will do the job as well as I do!’

    ‘High standards are demanded of me – but I don’t mind that. I love being a carer, and have always wanted to do the job to the best of my ability. In the past my employers never allowed me the time to do this, but it’s different now, and so much more rewarding’

    ‘I’m so impressed with Care Extra – their charges are so reasonable, and yet I’m paid better than I ever have been before’
