Why us

Our client was looking to hire a Registered Manager for one of its specialist residential care homes. The successful candidate needed like-for-like experience and to be based in close proximity to the home. Following a thorough search process, a high-calibre candidate was appointed, at a lower cost than traditional agency fees.

Finding the right individual in a limited geographical area

The role was challenging to fill. Not only did the candidate need leadership experience in a similar environment and strong knowledge of Care Standards/specific legislation, the location was also a challenge.

The role was based in South Yorkshire and the geographical area was limited as the Registered Manager needed to ideally live no less than a 60-minute commute from the home itself.

Our remit was to generate candidates for the £45k/50k-level role.

Mapping the market to find individuals who were the right fit

Initially we mapped the local market to identify talent established in the space. We identified individuals from ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Good’ homes and provided details in a thorough report.

After positive feedback from our client, we approached 42 of these individuals and nine close-fit CVs were generated. The client then took all nine of those candidates through a two-stage interview stage process, resulting in a successful placement.
