Careers with Country Cousins
Country Cousins is an introductory home care agency. Our role is to match the best Cousin to the client. This includes the type and level of training and experience a Cousin has, and the personality, interests and location of the client.
Join one of the UK’s longest-serving care agencies, Country Cousins, as a self-employed carer and earn between £616-£847 per week.
At Country Cousins you’ll be more than a carer, you’ll be a true friend and companion to our clients. As one of the UK’s longest-serving care agencies our list of clients is ever-growing, and we are always looking for more carers.
For 60 years, we have been placing dedicated Cousins with clients requiring live-in care, Nationwide.
To become a Cousin, you need to have a passion for caring and be able to support clients with a range of care needs, shopping, cooking, domestic duties, as well as providing companionship.
We believe that a Cousin becomes an extension of our clients’ family - therefore personal qualities, hobbies, interests and cooking skills are of utmost importance when matching our Cousins to our clients.
A thoroughly professional approach is important, plus the ability to adapt to the ever-changing needs of clients and their loved ones.
As a self-employed carer you’ll have the flexibility to balance your work life with your home life. As a Cousin you will offered assignments from 2 weeks to 6 weeks long – in a typical 4-week assignment you could earn over £3,300!
