We are have over ten years of experience of working within the health housing and social care sectors.
The challenges involved in recruiting within these areas have been increasingly highlighted in the media and local news. In turn we know that having the right staff working within your service is vital to acheiving the right outcomes.
With the current critical state of health and social care in the United Kingdom and with resources stretched to almost breaking point, the need for effective recruitment has never been more important. The situation was already critical prior to the decision was made to exit the European Union, but since then, more and more European nurses, carers and support workers are choosing to avoid UK in favour of countries that aren’t seemingly trying to push them away.
When talking about healthcare professionals, it’s easy to limit your thinking to simply doctors and nurses in hospitals, but the requirement in manpower is long and varied. There are countless roles in numerous different kinds of organisations for senior carers, registered managers, project workers, housing offers, social workers and even kitchen staff that are experiencing a major skills gap right now. The positions need filling and we can help you do just that.
The worst possible time

When a candidate comes to you with a Recruit 247 Care endorsement, you know they are going to do you proud.
The healthcare and social care industries are amongst the most fluid and dynamic sectors around, which means that being able to react to a crisis or at least having the capacity to, is vital. Whether the staffing gap is due to illness, market conditions or simply that new roles have arisen, you need to know that there is someone to turn to with access to staff with the right skills and experience.
At Recruit 247 Care, we not only supply personnel for emergency staffing issues, but we can supply emergency carers for a host of different reasons.
