Are you interested in becoming a caregiving personal assistant, tending to the needs of someone disabled, someone home help for the elderly, or someone living with a long-term condition? If you are a compassionate person and do not want any two days to be the same, then working as a skilled carer may be the perfect option for you.
Working as a carer doesn’t have any specific entry requirements, and it doesn't need you to have any previous qualifications or training. Instead, it hinges more on having the right attitude and mindset. This, combined with the very real and growing demand for more private carers in the UK, makes care a popular choice amongst people who might be thinking about changing their current profession.
We have shared the most common carer interview questions below, along with the best ways to answer them, drawing on some of the experiences of our platform's 10,000 PA-users.
