Frequently Asked Questions

“Job search” questions? We have answers sure to get you “the job”!

Can you tell me more about the hiring process and how your agency works?

The hiring process for temporary and permanent jobs differs slightly, however, we will always start with a telephone consultation with one of our experts to understand what you are looking for and your skills. From there it is a case of getting all your documents done and onboarded with us. We will then introduce you to the client and hope for a great fit… and then it is off to work.

What documents will I need to apply?

In order to onboard with us, we are going to need:

- As a minimum, your CV
- Your DBS (on the update service)
- Your Right to Work (passport and/or residents permit)
- Proof of address (utility bill/bank statement dated no longer than 3 months ago)
- Proof of NI (Payslip/P60/P45)
- References
- Any training and qualifications certificates you have

Do you offer sponsorships for ex-pat care workers?

No, we're sorry but our clients do not offer sponsorships for expat care workers at this time. However, there are many alternative recruitment agencies and companies that may be able to provide sponsorship for expat care workers. We recommend conducting a search online or contacting other recruitment agencies directly to explore your options. We wish you the best of luck in your search for sponsorship.

What are the associated fees for helping me find a job?

We’re happy to say that our service is completely free of charge! Our recruitment agency is constantly searching for the perfect candidates to fill vacant positions at our clients, and we don’t charge any fees to job seekers.

How long is the hiring process and when can I expect to hear back?

Hiring processes are different from client to client but usually days rather than weeks. Our team will always keep you informed so check your emails regularly and if you need anything, or just want to chase (or chat!), please always feel free to give us a call at +44 (0) 208 089 8008 any time

How do i know when my application has been received?

We'll send you an email to let you know we've received your application. If you haven't received anything, you may need to check your junk inbox to make sure the email has not fallen into there.

How do you handle background checks and verification of credentials?

If the role applied for requires a DBS we will either check this is on the update service or apply for a new one on the candidate's behalf. We will verify your credentials by taking a copy of your right to work in the UK documents.

Do I need a British Passport to work in the UK?

You do not need a British Passport to work in the UK, you require a settlement status.

I've seen a vacancy I am interested in, but the salary info is not included, how do I find this out?

We always provide as much information regarding each vacancy as we can. Sometimes, full details of the salary can’t be included. This is down to the employer’s discretion.
