What can a recruitment agency do for your local authority?

Here at Social Personnel, we provide high-quality recruitment solutions and supply high quality, social care staff, at all levels across the UK to clients looking to fill their social work positions. So, whether you have an urgent position to fill or need to implement a new team, we will always work to your requirements. Our blog post discusses why Social Personnel should be your first choice recruitment agency.


A talent pool of high-quality candidates 

We understand that local authorities pride themselves on placing the right candidate, every time. With our talent pool spanning over 10,000 candidates across 155 locations, with unqualified, qualified, temporary, and permanent candidates, we can give you the assurance that we provide candidates of an excellent standard that share the passion to make a real difference in their communities.


Unmatched compliance 

Our APSCo Compliance + accreditation means our compliance team goes above and beyond the industry standard, giving your HR teams the confidence that candidates are coming to you fully vetted, and ready to work with all their documentation up to date. Our compliance team pride itself on a smooth process that works well for both the candidate and client, ensuring we adhere to our deadlines as well as taking as much admin stress away from the client as possible.


Specialist knowledge, smoother processes

Our resourcing teams pre-screen and reference our candidates who are ready to be placed once their notice period is over. Our expert consultants regularly familiarise themselves with the ever-changing social work job market and ensure their understanding of staff demand, technical skills of each role, and the requirements of the local authority are top-notch. This knowledge ensures that we can quickly identify what you are looking for and work fast and efficiently to provide you with candidates whose own career goals and preferences match your local authority’s needs.


Long-term Relationships 

Social Personnel’s ethos is to build long-term relationships with both our clients and our candidates; the longer we work with a local authority, the better understanding we build on how you operate, change, and evolve, giving us the opportunity to adapt to your hiring strategy year on year. We also ensure we retain high quality candidates by prioritising their career goals when placing them in roles, providing CPD and performance training to ensure they feel understood and supported throughout each placement. This staff retention strategy helps us to ensure we consistently are able to present your hiring teams with candidates that are happy and fulfilled, as well as helping your own staff retention goals.


We serve our clients

Most of the work we do happens before any fees are charged to the client and if no candidate is hired then no fees will be charged. This ensures that we only provide you with the best and most suitable candidates for your vacancies.


These benefits mean that we can reduce any unnecessary costs and admin that is usually incurred from your in-house recruitment process, giving you peace of mind, and time to focus on the long-term strategy of your local authority.
