Caritas: the preferred provider of social work staff to 150+ local authorities and the NHS
We are a preferred provider of qualified locum social work staff for over 150 local authorities, the NHS, corporate and not-for-profit organisations.
What we do
We support candidates professionally and personally
Each of our candidates has a dedicated consultant: they support, mentor and reassure them throughout the recruitment process, giving them a reliable point of contact, including regular face-to-face meetings as the assignment progresses.
Our consultants are experts in social work recruitment, many with prior experience in the industry, and all are extensively trained to understand the challenges and rewards of the profession.
We put our locums on a par with permanent staff, by providing them with extensive access to career development tools, professional support and wellbeing services to ensure they’re highly motivated, fully trained and ready to start immediately.
We help clients secure the specialist staff they need
We’ve developed an innovative corporate structure designed specifically to help our clients in the public, voluntary and private sectors find locum, permanent or fixed-term staff.
Our consultants work with a national pool of applicants, and are not bound by regional quotas. We also have safeguarding teams in place to pre-vet our applicants and keep their paperwork up-to-date.
We understand the challenges currently faced by the sector, and so have made it easy for you to secure specialist staff at short notice in small or large volumes to aid departmental continuity and/or transition.
We promote sector improvements and charitable initiatives
Our unique position in the sector has enabled us to commission independent research that promotes initiatives designed to make operational improvements across the social care sector as a whole.
We’re also a proud partner to the NSPCC, and regularly arrange fundraising and awareness events to support their life-changing and important work.
