How much do I get paid?

At SuperCarers we appreciate all the hard work carers do, which is why you receive at least 75% of what the customer pays.

We have recommended rates, which vary based on shift type, and which we will automatically apply to your profile when you join. However, as self-employed workers you have the right to set your own rates, which you can do by emailing us on Please note, though, that we will not allow you to set rates which would result in you earning less than the living wage. There is not currently an upper limit on the rates which you can request, however please do remember that customers will consider prices when deciding which carers they would like to meet and eventually book.

Our recommended rates for day care are £12 per hour for shorter shifts, and £10.50 for shifts which last 6 hours or more. For night-time care rates vary based on how much you can expect to rest, up to £108.75 for a 10 hour working shift. Live-in care varies a lot more based on the needs, the location and the amount of breaks or days off included.
