Bespoke, neutral and compliant

Our work is focused on reducing agency spend and amplifying your permanent and bank workforce pools. We support you to meet compliance needs where agency use is unavoidable.

Our technology and processes ensure full and auditable compliance with all relevant CQC and government legislation to protect against safeguarding and employment risks.

Specialists in reducing spend and adding value

Our solutions help you to drive down temp spend across your organisation. As well as reducing agency margins to the lowest competitive level, we reduce total agency spend by addressing overall agency use, and remove non-margin charges including admin mark-ups and Temp to Perm fees.

Temporary recruitment technology

Our Software is easy to use, intuitive and regularly updated with client requirements. It gives the hiring manager or HR the ability to raise and fill shifts online and can act as an online rota. It also allows both manager and candidate access to online timesheets to validate their hours and allow payment to be made for work completed.
