Agency Based Recruitment Service
Elite Care Services (UK) Ltd is pleased to be able to offer an agency based recruitment service to providers of health and social care. We can provide highly skilled and reliable staff to home care providers and residential care settings on an hourly basis or on daily, weekly or even a monthly basis. All of our registered agency employees undertake a rigorous recruitment process, including completion of enhanced DBS checking and reference checking. All employees then undertake a full induction training programme and complete all mandatory update training on an annual basis. Many of our staff already hold or are currently working towards their Health and Social Care Diploma qualifications at level 3.
What are the benefits of using our
employees on an agency basis?
You will be provided with experienced, trained staff that have undergone background and reference checks. This will not only save you time and resources, but is also a very cost effective to you as a business.
We can usually cover shifts at short notice. We also operate an out of hour’s service so shifts can be covered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
What training do your agency staff complete?
All staff, whether agency or Elite Care Services (UK) Ltd.’s own staff, undertake a full induction programme which includes Health and Safety Awareness, Safeguarding Awareness, Moving and Handling and Duty of Care. Employees and agency staff also attend other training to develop their skills and knowledge, such as DoLs and Mental Capacity Act Training. We also offer development opportunities such as access to health and social care diploma training at level’s 2 and 3.
All staff are required to undertake annual update training – Failure to attend this training will render agency staff unable to be allocated shifts.

We charge on an hourly basis for our agency staff. This cost is transparent and is the same whether you require daytime, evening or weekend cover. Call 0161 850 3306to discuss our rates.
