Our Overnight Carer Jobs

The overnight carer role

If you would like to be part of something really special by bringing joy and purpose into elderly people’s lives, we would love to welcome you into the Bright Care family.

As an overnight Bright Carer, you’ll provide a reassuring presence throughout the night for our clients in the comfort of their own home. You’ll join an exceptional team of warm-hearted Bright Carers who deliver award-winning care at home to the elderly loved ones of the families that put their trust in us.

Working with Bright Care is more than just a ‘job’, it gives you a sense of pride, achievement and fulfilment.


Yvonne, Bright Carer

Job Description

As a member of our extended family, you’ll work in a small team to look after your regular clients through the night. We have two options at Bright Care:
  • Sleepovers: During a sleepover, you’ll have your own bed where you can go to sleep but you offer a reassuring presence throughout the night. You may be asked to wake up up to three times to assist the client.
  • Waking Nights: During a waking night, you’ll be awake for the duration of your stay. This is often when a client may need more support throughout the night, or is likely to be up more than three times.

Why Join The Bright Care Family

Our exceptional team of warm-hearted Bright Carers deliver award-winning care and companionship to the elderly loved ones of the families that put their trust in us.

As a family-founded business, we want everyone to feel like they are gaining an extended family in Bright Care when they join our team. That’s why our employees’ wellbeing is of the utmost importance to us, and why we’ll offer you competitive benefits and first-class training. What’s more, since we’re not an agency, you’ll have the full support of our office-based care team every step of the way. Our commitment and dedication to our employees is showcased through some incredible awards:

Bright care really does care! The training is excellent, the staff in the offices are all warm, friendly and professional. I really feel appreciated, valued and respected.

Being part of the family involves other benefits too:

  • First-class training and ongoing development delivered by our Bright Care Academy. 
  • A regular schedule that allows long-term and meaningful relationships to flourish.
  • Wellbeing support from our in-house coach.
  • In Scotland, we cover key regulatory costs such as your PVG, your SSSC registration for your first year and half the cost of your SVQ 2.
