The Registration Process


With our branches in Hove and Worthing, and clients across the whole of Sussex, Hanover Care have plenty of opportunities to suit you. We have both full-time and part-time roles in nursing, care, support work and homecare with a wide variety of clients including Nursing Homes, Hospitals, Residential Units, Day Centres, Supported Living and Homecare. You can access our specific vacancies page here. Contact our Hove office on 01273 723090 (for homecare: 01273 224200) or our Worthing office on 01903 258258. Or contact us using this page or download an application form here.


We will then arrange a mutually convenient time for an interview. Please fill out your application form as fully as possible to avoid delay, and bring with you with the appropriate documents as mentioned on this page.

The interview

Our interviews are informal, but it is important that we gain as much information as possible about you so that we can assess your suitability and best find the work that you are seeking. We will ask questions about your previous work experience, your aims for the future and the type of work that you are looking for. We will explain how Hanover Care can help, and the type of shifts that we have. We will photocopy your documents, and make a note of any information that is still outstanding.

Vetting and referencing

We will need to send off for a minimum of 2 references, which should cover a minimum of 5 years. (This is why it is important to have a full employment history). We can discuss aspects of referencing when you come for interview. We also ask all applicants to complete an Enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) application (previously CRB). These cost £45.

Initial training

Depending on the training that you have completed prior to Hanover Care, you will often be booked on mandatory training courses. Some of these you will need prior to starting work, and other courses you will be booked on in subsequent months.

Ready to Go

Provided the details outlined above come back satisfactorily, you will then be approved to work. You will be provided with an ID Badge, a uniform, timesheets, a staff handbook and any necessary additional equipment (gloves, aprons, etc) depending on the client group you are working with. At this stage, it is important to talk with your consultant about when you would want your first shift. Welcome to Hanover Care!
