Seven weeks since launching our unique Covid-19 recruitment offer for the care sector, we can report that we have processed over 5,000 candidate applications for six separate care home groups.
Our support has enabled hundreds of new workers to join the care sector providing critical resources at this time of need. Feedback has been excellent. Candidates have commented on the speed and professionalism of our recruiters and clients have been amazed at the quality and suitability of candidates shortlisted.
Mahj Hussain from ResourceBank commented
“The HR teams within the care sector are overstretched having to manage the Covid-19 safety and well-being of current staff as well as recruit new staff members. We have been able to take the “pain” away – looking after application management and sourcing scarce and management candidates for several clients – and are delighted with the results we have achieved."
As well as managing high volume applications, our specialist recruiters have been able to fill challenging vacancies for smaller care groups including:
- A qualified manager recruited within 11 days for an independent care home
- 18 care assistants recruited for a particularly challenging location with 100% offer and acceptance rate
- A shortlist for two senior regional care co-ordinator positions delivered in just 4 days
We even sourced PPE for one overstretched care home enabling 60 care workers to remain at work at the height of the PPE shortage.
ResourceBank is an experienced partner for the Care Sector and has quadrupled the number of colleagues recruiting in this field since the start of Covid-19.
Managing Director Richard Pearson said:
“I’m proud of the fact we were the first organisation to recognise Care Homes were being ignored and the team have responded brilliantly. Our offer is still available to any care home group needing support.”
