Work as a Senior Carer in the UK

Due to recent changes to the UK immigration system, international nurses now have the option to work in the UK as a Senior Healthcare Assistant.

Although the role of Senior Carer isn’t the same as that of a nurse, it does incorporate many elements of a nursing position, including administering medication, team leadership and more.

Plus, the immigration route is quicker and more direct, as applicants who take this path do not need to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), as those wishing to work as nurses in the UK do.

We have permanent positions at hospitals and private care and nursing establishments throughout the UK.

Senior Care Assistants lead and co-ordinate a team of healthcare workers to provide high quality care to residents
