Over 1.25 million hours of locum support provided to our clients each year
At Caritas, we always have the end service user in mind. That’s why we ensure that each of our candidates is inspired and equipped to make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable people.
We recognise the hurdles that need to be overcome in our sectors, and have responded by developing innovative solutions that ensure continuity and stability within social work teams. We call it ‘Caritas Fidelity’.
Change is needed
As a specialist social work recruitment agency, we understand the challenges that the sector is currently facing. Adult and children’s social services are operating with a vacancy rate of 8.7% and 13% respectively, and the sector is struggling to attract enough high-quality candidates.
We’ve found that – while recognised as a critical resource – locum social workers are often perceived in a negative light because they are seen as a temporary solution to a long-term problem. We provide locums with professional and personal support, advanced training and administrative assistance to help put them on a par with permanent social workers and dispel this belief.
Peace of mind
We’re externally audited to make sure we meet APSCo Compliance+ Social Work standards and are accredited by ISO 9001, so you can rely on us to find highly trained and motivated BIAs.
Call on Caritas today and find out how our ‘Fidelity’ model can add value to your search for quality locum staff.
