ENA Care Group are a family run company with over 20 years experience providing live-in care to vulnerable adults in the UK. Our aim is to keep our clients in the comfort of their own home. We want them to have a full and independent life despite their disability, hence why we look for carers who can live and work alongside them.
The role of a live-in carer is not your average 9-5 job. It's a rewarding and challenging role that will take you to new places while making a difference to someone's life. It's a great first step for people looking to find their feet in the UK. This is a perfect opportunity to those wanting to take a break after studies to travel as our flexible placements help you to fund the means to globetrot with accommodation included.
Because everyone must attend a FREE 5 day training course (with accommodation) before being placed into work, we recruit anyone from recent graduates of Healthcare to those who might not have any care experience. All you need to be, is a person with a caring demeanor who often puts others first.
The company began as a family run business and as we have grown, we have never lost sight of our family ethos. We are committed to ensuring that all of our staff have the correct caring attitude and dedication to help others that we believe compliments the company values. ENA Care Group is still run by Clare, Claudio and their children today.
After a few years of studying we understand why you might want to take a break, this is the perfect opportunity to go and travel while at the same time finding some work that will enable you to travel.
We have been recruiting New Zealanders for years, and the reason we recruit overseas because we can provide flexible work placements and in between this work you can go and travel Europe, UK or anywhere else that takes your fancy.
Our recruitment team have come from similar travelling and relocating experiences and know how it feels to travel to a new country without having any work lined up. They are here with you every step of the way even before you arrive to training in the UK.

Working as a Carer, I was trained comprehensively and then matched to Clients who I was best suited to. ENA Care Group is comprised of great people doing great things.

Edna developed juvenile arthritis in her teens, which made movement in her arms and legs gradually more difficult. In 1993, aged 63, Edna had an accident in her home slipping over in her bathroom, breaking her arm. In hospital, the nurses would often forget that Edna was unable to eat unassisted and Edna was regularly overlooked.
Over time, it began to become harder and harder to ensure that Edna was being properly cared for. Edna’s husband Ronnie, also arthritic in his legs, was unable to care for Edna alone. It became clear to Clare, a full time registered nurse that the health of her friend was deteriorating. Clare and Claudio decided to invite Edna to stay in their 2-bed flat with their 3 children. They took it upon themselves to look for a long-term solution to help Edna return home. Edna had become so frail during her stay in hospital. The day Edna discharged herself, she could easily be lifted from her bed to the car.
At the time, they couldn’t find a homecare company that provided trained live-in carers. Those that claimed they did, were unable to provide staff who could assist with tasks such as mobility transfers. This left Edna and Ronnie relying on friends to help them wash, dress and leave the house. By this point, it was clear that other companies were unable to provide the standard of care that Edna needed. Edna asked Clare and Claudio to help find her capable carers. Clare and Claudio found 2 carers – Tony and Michel. Tony and Michel were trained to care for Edna and Ronnie and the European Nursing Agency (ENA), began.
"I will always remember the time Edna lived with us. Our children would come home from school and climb up on Edna and Ronnie to show them what they had done that day. My fondest memory is of my 5-year old twin girls preparing Weetabix with honey and feeding Edna breakfast every morning." - Clare, CEO of ENA Care Group
