Date Revised:

Get support if you are a carer looking for work for the first time, have been out of work for a while or you are in work but looking for a new job.

Find your local carer services as they may be able to help you look for work or training. Some services have special support and groups for carers looking for work.

Find help here about applying for a job, gaining experience and advice about interviews

Jobcentre Plus may also be able to help if you tell them that you are a carer.

Further information about getting into work

  • The National Careers Service offers useful information to help you make decisions on what jobs you might enjoy and gives advice on how to get the job you want. 
  • The Gov.uk website has general advice about finding a job.
