Our experienced, friendly, and helpful recruitment team are available to guide case managers in collaboration with the employer through the complete support worker recruitment process including DBS checks, rights to work and obtaining references.
Initially they will liaise with the case manager and the employer – who can be the client, the client’s family, or a financial deputy – about the vacancy. They can offer advice and guidance with drafting job descriptions and in turn can make recommendations for the most suitable publication, online jobsites, or social media to publicise the vacancy. The recruitment team keep up to date with all employment legislation to ensure that the advert will comply with the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s guidance.
They will then carry out all administration for applicants for the position and work closely with case managers to ensure that the most suitable applicants are selected for interview.
Once a support worker has been successful at interview, the recruitment team jumps into action to carry out all the necessary rigorous pre-employment checks to ensure safe recruitment, including DBS checks and obtaining references. They will liaise with the employer to draft offer letters and contracts.
In liaison with our Compliance Team, they will ensure that the necessary mandatory training is completed before the support worker starts working with the client.
They also support the employer with variations to support workers’ contracts and maintaining all HR records.
