Hoorah - you've applied!

Once we receive your application, you’ll get an email to let you know we’ve got it safe and sound. When we’ve had a chance to read through it and make sure you meet our criteria, one of our team will be in touch with you to let you know if you’ve made it through to the next stage.

Telephone interview
Let's chat

Once we’ve double checked you’re the right candidate on paper, we’ll have a quick chat on the phone to find out a bit more about you. We’ll talk you through the process & triple check you have our ‘must haves’ before arranging to meet!

Face to face interview
Or faces over Zoom!

Next stop, you’ll meet with someone from our recruitment team, either in our London or Lancaster office or over Zoom. It’s here that we’ll make sure you’re the right personality for the job. A huge amount of what we do here at Origin is based around matching the right clients with the right carers, so it’s vital we get a real flavour for who you are.

Care manager call
Ask us anything!

Our Care Managers are experienced, and as well as making sure our clients are happy, they look after our Personal Care Assistants, too. This is your chance to ask the guys on the front line what it’s really like working at Origin, and it’s their chance to book you onto a specialist training course!

Specialist training
Time to learn!

Now we know you’re the right fit, we need to equip you with the right skills. Regardless of your previous experience, you’ll be asked to come along to an intensive 5-day training course in the UK, where we’ll put you through your paces.

Client matching
And you're off!

The client/carer relationship is vital to delivering the highest standard of care we can. We spend a lot of time getting to know you, so that we can pair you with a client that’ll be well suited to you. It’s about making sure you and the client are both happy and comfortable.

Who are our clients?

Origin Spinal Injury Care offers specialist live-in care to adults in the UK living with spinal injuries who all have full mental capacity.

For the most part, the clients are young adults, who are busy and active, both in work and socially. With good care, their fear of an unfulfilled life is held back, enabling lives with spontaneity and freedom of choice.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for both new and experienced live-in carers to join our team across the UK to help us bring spontaneity and freedom of life to adults living with a spinal cord injury. Whether this is your first care job, or you’ve been doing it for years, you’ll be fully supported by our experienced, established care management team, many of whom started their careers at Origin as live-in carers themselves. 

Want to work with us but live outside the UK? Don’t worry. We want you to know that we’re committed to building a diverse, talented team of people who share our passion for making a difference to people’s lives. We’re dedicated to offering opportunities to the very best people, regardless of background or nationality.
