FAQs

  • how do I register with Randstad Care?

    It’s really straightforward.

    If you find a suitable role on our live jobs feed, simply apply, sending across your CV and (for Nursing applications, a short profile) and one of our Health Care consultants will process this and get in touch to discuss your suitability to the role.

    Alternatively, you can call or email your local Randstad Care branch to discuss what you’re looking for and to complete the registration process so we can help find you your ideal role.

  • will you need to see documents relating to my medical registration/licencing?

    Yes. When placing people in positions of care, it is vital that we follow procedures. 

    We will meet with you to go through all relevant checks and assist you in completing all required documentation.

  • do you only specialise in temporary work?

    Absolutely not.

    We specialise in placing Health and Social Care professionals into temporary, fixed-term and permanent roles across the whole of the UK, and across both the public and private sectors.

  • where’s my local Randstad Care branch?

    Randstad Care has the largest branch network of any other social care recruiter. 

    With a network of 11 offices across the UK - and expanding – there is always someone nearby to help you in your job search. This is important as it means we can get to know you and your requirements, and place you with an employer we know and trust from your local area.

  • how long does the application and interview process take?

    It’s our top priority to ensure that everyone we place is carefully vetted and checked in the best interests of clients.

    The standard process we follow is to meet with you to go through all relevant checks. As a minimum (and depending on the role you are applying for) we would need to:

    • Conduct a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
    • Conduct a disclosure barring service check
    • Receive a minimum of 2 references covering the most recent 3 years of employment / education 
    • Review ID, Right to work in the UK, 2 documents for proof of address and National Insurance (NI)

    This can usually be done relatively quickly if you prepare all information as soon as possible.

    After that, it’s just a matter of following the standard interview process and you could be working in a matter of weeks.

  • what level of interaction and support can I expect?

    Our specialist consultants will work with you before, during and after your placement to ensure you’re fully supported every step of the way.

    We’ll help you to complete the application process, prepare you for your interview and make sure you’re comfortable in your new role by conducting weekly calls to check you’re settling in ok and to offer support with administrative responsibilities, such as timesheet processing.
