Genesis works with a range of healthcare providers across North Yorkshire and the wider UK to provide support and live-in care. We’re always on the lookout for qualified registered nurses, carers of all backgrounds and experience levels, and anyone who wants to help us help our service users.

If you’re looking for a placement with an NHS Trust, a nursing and care home, or a private customer in need of aid and support, Genesis Healthcare Recruitment will help you find the right job for your skills and specialties.

What We Expect From Our Candidates

As you would expect, because we work with a wide range of service users, we recruit healthcare professionals with a range of skills and experience. An NHS hospital will have different requirements to a care home, who’ll want a different candidate to a family with a disabled child or injured ex-service personnel.

Our job specifications vary from position to position, but you’ll mainly be expected to fulfil a number of the following duties as part of your placement:

Background is No Barrier

We understand that disability isn’t limited by gender, race or religion. So we don’t look at a potential candidate’s ethnicity or racial background when we hire a new carer.

All we ask is that you’re professional, approach every single assignment with the right attitude, and that you share our commitment to providing genuine help to those who need it most.

We prefer our candidates to have experience in similar roles, but we understand that attitude and application are just as important as your job history. If you’re young and looking to enter the caring profession for the first time, or you’ve previously worked in different jobs and industries, we’ll provide you with full training before we find you a placement.
