Why choose Search?

Following the change in government and highly publicised key precedents within the industry, social care in the UK has never been such a hot topic. Reforms in funding streams have forced the sector to look at new ways of providing services to society's most vulnerable people, and with involvement from private, public and voluntary sectors, it has never before been so important to rely on the delivery of front-line services by the most talented and skilled people. 

Search Social Care recognises the diversity of skills needed to succeed within such a transient industry. Working closely with our medical division, we understand the market from both a health and a social care perspective. Working with a wide client base, including care and nursing homes, NHS trusts, private hospitals, housing associations, charities and local authorities, Search are able to call on their expertise to provide the most relevant staff at short notice.   

Of course, compliance is of paramount importance. Like many of our clients, we apply our minimum standards in line with those dictated by the CQC. Before assigning work to any of our associates, our dedicated team ensure they have all been thoroughly referenced with enhanced CRB checks. We also offer mandatory training on our premises and coordinate ad-hoc training sessions in line with the needs of our clients. 

Like the sector itself, here at Search, we are operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Unlike our competitors, we are able to offer a unique service to residential homes, hospitals, and housing projects with a bank of experienced candidates that can be immediately mobilised and working within an hour of the request.   

Roles we recruit include: 

  • Qualified social workers
  • Registered care managers
  • Healthcare assistants
  • Mental health support workers
  • Specialist substance misuse support workers
  • Residential children's support workers
  • Youth workers
  • Sheltered scheme managers
