Key Care and Support Opens New Branch
Key Care and Support Opens New Branch in Shrewsbury
Manchester-based recruitment agency, Key Care and Support has this week opened a new office at Shrewsbury Business Park from where the company will supply nurses, care assistants and support workers to hospitals and care homes across Shropshire.
This new office is part of a major programme of expansion for the firm and the first of two new branches to open in as many months. A third branch is planned for Preston in May.
The company, which specialises in recruitment for the health care sector, has pinpointed Shrewsbury as its newest location due the high demand for nursing staff in county and claims it could save local employers at least 10% on the cost of hiring temporary personnel.
Key Care and Supports newly appointed Branch Manager, Meirwen Jones explained, We are very excited to be opening in Shrewsbury and know there is massive demand across Shropshire for high quality candidates to fill literally hundreds of positions.
Key Care and Support is already a first provider for a number of organisations in the North West and we look to attract new business from care homes, NHS trusts, and specialist centres across the county. Indeed we currently hold preferred status for the NHS nationally, so hospitals like the Royal Shrewsbury and the Princess Royal in Telford will be able to use our services with immediate effect.
We offer a competitive service and maintain an extremely rigorous recruitment process, not accepting any staff with less than six months experience in their particular field, be it mental health nursing, clinical nursing or caring for people with learning difficulty. Plus by offering our temps more benefits than some of our rivals, such as free NVQ training and free CRB checks, we attract some of the highest calibre people.
Meirwen, who is a trained nurse herself, having worked in senior management roles for some 20 years, will be joined by Account Manager Janine Williams. Meirwen moved into recruitment in 2000. She still works ad hoc as a temp - this ensures her knowledge and understanding of the roles and the needs of client is second to none. The pair has worked locally before in the care industry and come with excellent reputations for delivering a quality service, which compliments Key Care and Supports philosophy.
Key Care and Support is currently looking to recruit trained nurses, registered general nurses (RGNs), registered mental nurse (RMNs), support workers and health care assistants for private and NHS positions and aim to have 70 temps on their books within six months generating 25k worth of business per week.
