Recruitment Process

By the time a temporary worker starts working for you, they have already undergone our initial screening and healthcare recruitment process.  This takes place in a series of interviews and briefings so that their duties and responsibilities are fully outlined and understood.  In addition, prior work history and references, as well as an up-to-date DBS check clearance are obtained. They will then undergo an induction training programme which includes theoretical understanding and practical demonstration and assessment to ensure their working practises are safe and compliant.  Also included is basic company and important processes and details such as office and on call contact information; conduct at work and communicating with the branch, reporting and recording, health & safety, time sheet procedure, working time regulations and payment details. We have our own training rooms fully equipped with profile beds, hoists, small aids, etc., to undertake all our training on site and enable us to continually observe candidates throughout the full interview and induction process.

Equipped with this knowledge from day one helps to develop an effective, safe and productive relationship.

We tailor our interview and induction content to each individual client to ensure that when you receive any temporary workers from us, you can be assured we are identifying personal values, behaviours and skills levels throughout the process, as you would with your own team.
