A Meaningful Career in Home Care

Join Ireland’s largest home care provider

Caring for seniors is a humbling experience that requires a special person and just the right touch.

Home Instead® offices are looking for caring, compassionate individuals to join our team.

We believe in caring for our employees as much as we do caring for our seniors.

With a 4,000-strong CAREGiver team working across every county in Ireland, we are the country’s largest non-medical home care provider.

We have full-time, part-time and live-in opportunities available now.

Wherever you are based, there is a job for you, and whatever your career aspirations, there is a pathway for you.


Who we’re looking for

  • Full-time Carers: You already work in home care, nursing home care and have QQI training to support your experience

  • Part-time Carers (experienced): You already work part-time in home care with older people in your community or perhaps you are or have been a family carer and would like to help more older people live happy lives at home

  • Part-time Carers (non-experienced): You care about the older people in your community, you’d like to help them to live happy lives at home, on a schedule that fits your life and matches your availability; perhaps you’re a mum looking to get back into the workforce part time

  • Students / Student Nurses: You have QQI-level training or perhaps you’re looking for practical experience and flexible opportunities as you work towards full qualification

  • Former Nurses / Retirees: You’d like to spend a few hours a week giving back to the community, working for the world’s leading non-medical home care provider!

The most important thing we look for in a person is a kind and caring heart – someone who shares our mission and values and who would like to help us to enhance the lives of older people and their families.
