"I have worked within nursing recruitment for over 4 1/2 years now and I can honestly say that it is one of the most rewarding sectors to be part of. The Care sector is ever changing and comes with unique challenges and demands but at Randstad Care we pride ourselves on quality and compliance and the impeccable service given to both candidates and clients. I manage a Specialist Nursing Team who look after Community and Integrated Services within the North West and Midlands and supply all community job profiles under this remit. Manchester Care is built on strong ethics with a real passion for what we do, this is complimented with the testimonials we receive daily. The Manchester office is based in the heart of the city and the team collectively do not just look after Nursing, our Residential and Social Care teams are based here also looking after the same geographical areas as Nursing though predominately the North west. I am very proud to work as part of the Team in Manchester and I am confident in that we will only build on the strength of our relationships with candidate and clients, new and existing, ensuring that we are the ideal recruitment partner to aid the growth our clients organisation and our candidates career and development"

“I would like to thank Louise massively for all the help and encouragement she has given me since joining Randstad as a CPN. From giving me the times of trains when I first visited Randstad to being completely supportive when my new contract started. Louise is extremely friendly and approachable, calm in manner and always smiling and positive. Louise is efficient and professional and nothing seems a trouble to her. She is truly a great asset to anyone's reputation who employs her. I have enjoyed all interaction with Louise and see her as a steady and fixed anchor point for myself with the Agency.”

I have no hesitation in recommending Natasha - she delivers what she promises and is a pleasure to work with.”
Jane, Qualified Social Worker.

“Darren has supported me with the services I manage by providing me with staff who have the right skills to deliver and meet the service needs. This has been very beneficial to patients and to our permanent staff who were working with reduced capacity. 

Darren is efficient, professional and supportive, I would and have recommended him to other service managers and he has also supported them with their needs. Darren has also supported me by directing me to another colleague of his to support with administration needs in a service, this is still on-going.

Darren is in regular contact to support me with the staff he has registered and actively recruits staff which we need once we have been provided the details. Darren responds efficiently and effectively to any queries or needs I have to provide cover for the service.”
Maureen, Locality Service Manager, NHS Trust

"I am writing to you to just pass on my gratitude and also positive feedback from my interactions with Rachael recently after she contacted me.

I met Racheal at your Manchester office and straight away she made me feel at ease and was a joy to deal with. She was pleasant and well informed and assisted me patiently through the forms and and the processes needed to enrol with Ransted. She went out of her way to assist me and was very patient and generally the person you would like to meet when you attend any office, at no point did she make me feel ill at ease.

I have recommended a number of people to Rachael on the basis of that first meeting and also her interactions over the phone and email. I would say she is an asset to your company and her pleasant, cheerful demeanor makes any interaction with her a pleasure."
David Parry, In-Reach Community Mental Health Nurse

Her understanding of the business needs and culture of the home has enabled her to provide me with a high caliber of applicants. Charlene has always been professional, honest and reliable. Her ability to be to be organised has ensured I was regularly and sufficiently updated on any issues. I would not hesitate in recommending Charlene to anyone."

Charlene Reynolds from Randstad Care managed to find my CV and invited me to work for the NAS, after reading of my previous charity work. Over the next few weeks charlene helped me start my new career with the National Autistic Society. She worked fast and constantly kept me updated. I would recommend Randstad Care to anyone who is looking for a career that is rewarding."

"Charlene Reynolds is a fantastic recruiter. Her friendly and helpful attitude has shone through immediately and has made me feel very comfortable working with her. Charlene interacts effectively demonstrating a positive attitude and strives to develop good relations with her clients. Right from our first discussion, she has proven a great understanding of my needs and what I was after and was very professional in handling my job requirements. 

Her total commitment and support with finding the right job for me and the preparation she put in place to make sure I was successful throughout the recruitment process was outstanding. The personalized advice and attention she has offered before my two interviews have allowed me to feel more at ease and confident before and during my interviews. More than once, Charlene has shown initiative and gone the extra mile to assist with my application. Charlene has shown determination and consistency in communicating with me from day one. She possess great technical knowledge and skills not only in finding great job opportunities but also in sending out clear and straightforward communication messages which have helped me organize all the documents I was required. 

Her ability to manage all the available resources shows that she is very qualified and very professional in her job. Charlene understands the different stages of the recruitment process and what is required for each one and is able to advise accordingly.Furthermore, she has shown high working standards and is very punctual and reliable."
​Alex Simionescu, Support Worker

"My experience with Randstad and Hayley Lightfoot in particular has been outstanding. I feel like I've been involved in the whole process and kept up to date at all time. I feel  Hayley has been highly  approachable and has answered any questions or concerns I had. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. I would also like thank Hayley especially for all her hard work and support."
Aron Cain, Support Worker

"Thanks again for the pre-interview conversation and email, which I found extremely useful. Although you didn't give specifics as to questions and answers (and I'm glad you didn't as I like to rely on my own knowledge and responses!), the advice that you gave to research the company, ensure that I had considered and answered the entire question especially if it is a two-parter, and that it is really important to make sure that I come across genuinely as myself, gave me confidence and helped me focus on the interview in an organised and planned way. Because you had also clearly put a lot of thought into matching the employer with the candidates, I felt that I and the interviewer/recruiter really clicked, and I enjoyed the interview and interaction very much. I felt really positive when I left and, as you know, was subsequently offered the job! Thanks again"
Lorna O'keefe, Support Worker

"The experience of working with you over the past few weeks have been more than useful, as you I have shown interest in me and your pre-talk prior to the interview was a stepping stone.  You have showed the potential to coach people back into work"
​James Charles, Support Worker

"I just wanted to write to you in regards to Laura on your team and Randstad. I can honestly say joining Randstad has changed my life – sounds OTT I know but I have gotten my love for nursing back after all those years. The jump from NHS to agency is really a jump in the dark – However, since starting with Randstad in January I have been lucky enough to have Laura as my consultant. I feel supported and in some ways protected – not something I had previously expected from an agency. To know there is someone  at the end of the phone/email to chew over any issues with is so reassuring, the team are always so pleasant. Laura is professional and reliable  -  and I thank every working  day that I am now with Randstad and feel so appreciated for the Work done."
Janet McAlpine, District Nurse
