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!

If you have the right to work in the UK, at least six months’ experience and a passion for caring, we want to hear from you.

  • A great blessing to us

    On behalf of my brother and myself, and indeed all our family, I should like to record the debt we owe the Country Cousins who came to care for both our parents over the past 2 years. Without the help of Country Cousins, Mum and Dad could not have stayed in their own home and this they so dearly wished to do, it was a great blessing to us all that this became a reality.

  • Very professional and extremely caring

    I would like to say that the Country Cousins, who cared for my wife until she died, were very professional and extremely caring and kind during the time they were here. I would like to say thank you, at Country Cousins, for sending them in our time of need.

  • Enjoyed Country Cousins support

    I have now enjoyed the support of your Country Cousins and I would like you to know that of 6 1/2 years of having to need care, these two ladies, though very different in character, they are both splendid carers in their own way.

  • You never let us down

    Thank you to you all at Country Cousins for the support you have given us over the last four years. You have never let us down over the years, we have met some interesting and caring people. We have no hesitation in recommending you to other people.

  • Very pleased and happy in her care

    Can you kindly note that I was very happy with the Country Cousin who came to look after my mother and she was very happy in her care too. Very reassuring to know that she was in the capable hands of someone you could trust.
