I joined Randstad just over year ago running a large local authority contract. This allowed me to build strong relationships with the authority and the candidates. After six months my role developed into running two large contracts by taking on another master vendor contract. After seven months in this position, I have now joined the Nursing team.

Randstad Care - Cardiff


Randstad Care’s Cardiff branch proudly serves the South Wales and Bristol region. Our city centre branch is open from 8:30-17:30 on weekdays and is a short two minute walk from Cardiff Queens Street train station, making it easily accessible and convenient to visit us. If you would like to book a registration, please call us on 02920 877510 to make an appointment.

Branch Specialities 

Randstad Care in Cardiff specialises in care and support work vacancies across Wales and Bristol in both the private and public sectors. Our designated nursing and social work teams cover qualified care jobs in the area, and are on hand to provide tailored career advice if you are looking to pursue a career in one of these professions. We deal with both temporary and permanent contracts, as well as shift work, so we can offer a level of flexibility to suit each candidate.

We currently have a number of contracts with Local Authorities via the Welsh Purchasing Consortium, which means that we are the sole supplier for the majority of public sector vacancies in the area. We also have a number of agreements in place with private and voluntary organisations, including one of the largest housing and care companies operating in Wales, Grŵp Gwalia Cyf, along with many residential care providers, independent fostering agencies, and hospitals. 

At a branch level, we endeavour to support jobseekers in the local area to find the right career for them through a number of regular open days in our office, along with events at universities, job fairs and Jobcentres. We provide a full service to candidates, from the registration stage to securing a temporary or permanent placement and offering support throughout their employment. We don’t consider our job to be finished when a placement is made, and will continue to provide aftercare services to ensure that our candidates feel valued and supported in their new roles.

Working in the Community 

Investing in our pool of local talent is vital as a responsible recruitment business, and at the Cardiff office we work closely with local jobcentres and hold regular open days where we hold CV workshops. We also ensure that our candidates are able to develop professionally and further their careers by providing a wide range of training sessions at no cost to our candidates.

Randstad as a company has paired up with the children’s charity Variety which provides support to disabled children and their families, and the Cardiff branch is taking the lead in organising fundraising activities and raising awareness of the charity. Lauren Thomas is our champion for Variety fundraising, and has so far been responsible for organising a number of events across the company and we’re off to a great start so far in terms of the money we have raised for this fantastic cause. As an office, we have also taken part in events such as fun runs to raise money for charity. This year, Keri Evans from our Key Accounts team is running the Cardiff Half Marathon in October to raise money for Variety. We at the Cardiff office pride ourselves on our fancy dress, and we also hold regular costume contests and themed dress-down days in the office to raise money for good causes.
