Carers Register is a members website that allows people who are looking for carers to search through carers who have registered on the website. Carers Register covers the whole of the UK. Any employment that is established between the employer and the carer is done independently from this website. People looking for carers can also advertise on the website for a carer and have carers contact them directly using the internal website messaging system. Agencies are also able to advertise jobs on the website. Agency jobs are clearly differentiated from individual employer jobs.
Any carers that have registered on the site are not checked or endorsed in any way by Carers Register. It is up to individual employers to check references and assess the suitability of carers when hiring a carer through this website.
Anyone can register as a carer with Carers Register and it is not limited to people with specific caring qualifications or have already had caring experience. All the qualifications and experience can be entered by the carer when registering so that employers can assess the suitability of each carer.
As well as showing the experience and qualifications of carers, it is also possible to search for carers based on distance, particular languages they speak, their fluency in English, whether they have experience in working with the LGBT community and more.
