Last-Minute Emergencies to Long-Term Cover

Finding the right carer is important, regardless of the duration of care required. Whether you’re looking to hire a carer for a single shift, an extended period of time, or even on a full-time basis, we have you covered, thanks to our flexible range of booking options (which you can explore on our dedicated page).

One popular option we offer to care homes is block bookings. If you need extra help at your Home every Monday, and every other weekend – we can process this all in a single booking, so you don’t have to make a new one every week! You know that our staff will be there when you need them to be.

Hire a Carer on our Temp-to-Perm Programme

If your organisation is looking to hire a carer full-time, we can offer a temp-to-perm scheme: you can take on our agency staff for trial shifts with the view to hiring them! Employing agency staff gives you a trial period for every candidate, so you get a good understanding of how the candidates work, from the comfort of your own Home. We organise this type of thing on a case-by-case basis, so give us a call if you’re interested, and we can sort out the details.

Our Strict Recruitment Policies

Our staff will end up in important positions of trust. Before we hire a carer, it is our duty to make sure to vet our candidates thoroughly to ensure they are the right people for the jobs. We take safeguarding Vulnerable Adults extremely seriously.

All of our agency staff MUST:

  • Have current, up-to-date training in all the mandatory fields. We refresh this training yearly.
  • Have a verifiable work history of at least five years, and provide two professional, relevant, references, which we will check.
  • Undergo an Enhanced DBS Check with Adults and Children’s Barred List.
  • Show us that they have the right attitude! If we wouldn’t want someone looking after us or our family members, we wouldn’t want them looking after your residents either.
  • And most importantly, our staff require 6 months of relevant experience in the UK within the last 2 years, or 2 years’ experience within the last 5. This requirement ensures that our staff fit right into UK residential home settings, and can get straight to work.

We recently sent out questionnaires to some of our staff asking them what inspired them to get into care, Why not have a look at some of their answers, we found them all very moving and inspiring.
