Care Futures appoints senior appointments recruiter
Tucker, who has almost 10 years industry experience, joins a specialist team in Leeds which sources talent for social care organisations across the UK.
Tucker is responsible for recruiting chief executives, directors, senior managers and principals for a wide range of public and private sector social care organisations that typically work with children, young people, families and adults. These include adoption and fostering agencies, residential care homes, special needs residential schools, social care charities and local authorities.
Tucker says, “We operate in a very niche market and it’s something I am very passionate about. We put a lot of time and effort into finding the most appropriate candidate, often spending months mapping out and researching possible applicants for a role. It’s an incredibly confidential industry, that is under constant pressure to ensure the maximum return on all its spend, so it’s essential these organisations can access the very best, and that’s where we can help.”
Head of Care Futures, Tom Ryan, says, “We are delighted to welcome Allan to our team, he is very experienced and well regarded within this sector. His networks in the private and independent care sector will complement our public sector specialism allowing our clients to benefit from a broader knowledge base and talent pool.”
Care Futures is part of recruitment group Futures.co.uk which has been operating for 25 years and employs 29 staff across its offices in Leeds, Manchester and London.
