Business Profile

This business became a limited company in 2004, recruiting, training and supplying social care staff to local authorities by contract via managed service groups, who stipulate which authority the staff are for. Training rooms in the premises bring the staff up to grade to fill the posts to care for vulnerable children, adults and young people.

The business ensures that adequate checks are carried out on every candidate including Criminal Records Bureau checks to ensure that the local authority clients get the quality worker needed to match individual requirements. Local staff are employed and there are approximately 80 active staff working at any one time and circa 150 staff on the books.
