Health and care workers are some of the most sought after professionals in the UK today. With both private sector and public sector organisations competing to secure the best health and care workers, there are always more jobs available than permanent applicants.
Against this back drop of extreme and growing demand for health and care workers, recruitment agency fees have been rocketing with margins in excess of £150 an hour not uncommon to supply the most skilled temporary staff, who are available to fill last minute shortfalls in headcount and ensure vital patient services continue uninterrupted.
de Poel health+care helps organisations manage their recruitment of health and care workers more effectively and efficiently – avoiding inflated fees for the provision of temporary staff. Sitting between client organisations and recruitment agencies, we ensure that margins charged for healthcare candidates supplied are fair and transparent and against a set rate card. Importantly this level playing field then ensures recruitment agencies compete on the quality of health and care candidates provided not price.
Additionally de Poel health+care conducts rigorous audits of any agency supplying health and care staff under our contracts, to ensure all agencies are compliant with the latest legislation which governs the provision of staff to the healthcare sector.
