Social care client FAQs

Who do you recruit for?

Our client base spans a variety of different companies across the social care spectrum including:

  • Private care homes and services
  • Private hospitals
  • National care groups
  • Children's home providers
  • SEN schools
  • Local authorities
  • Charities

How do you recruit?

Our primary source for candidates is by headhunting experienced professionals who are currently in posts and not necessarily looking for work. Our current candidate base also uses Charles Hunter Associates as an outlet for keeping up-to-date on interesting roles within the social care industry.

We also utilise advertising on multiple job boards to ensure we attract those who are actively looking.

What social care specialties do you recruit for?

We recruit for all job titles across children's and adult's social care services including:

  • Support workers
  • Senior support workers, shift leaders, team leaders
  • Care coordinators
  • Registered, service, and home managers
  • Heads of care
  • Senior management
  • Directors

Can you offer executive search or headhunting?

Yes, we work with our clients on a retained basis to hire senior management and executive level appointments.

Can you offer bulk recruitment services?

In our social care division we have a designated team who manage a bulk recruitment service for organisations who require large numbers of candidates.

This successful bespoke service offers experienced support workers on a fixed fee basis to accommodate the number of available positions. We currently have this service running successfully across multiple organisations within the UK, with testimonials available.

If you have multiple positions available and are interested in discussing a bespoke bulk recruitment service, please contact our social care team.

Can you offer confidential recruitment?

We understand that confidentiality is sometimes necessary when hiring within social care, so we offer a confidential recruitment service to those who may require it. This means there will be no public advert for the vacancy, and we will keep your company name private from potential candidates until they're successful in securing an interview.

Do your services include assistance with the onboarding process?

Yes, our back office compliance team can assist you in all aspects of the recruitment process for successful hires which includes assistance and administration with the onboarding process. This would involve online and paper applications, document verification, DBS checking, and reference checks.

How do you work out your fees?

Our fees are bespoke and based on the service we offer (bulk, contingency or headhunting), and would be confirmed upon taking a job order from you.

Why should I use you?

Charles Hunter Associates are hugely successful in this industry due to our consistent delivery of a highly efficient permanent recruitment service. We have client testimonials and case studies available if requested.
