Services and Results
The UK healthcare market is currently experiencing unprecedented vacancy levels. According to a report in the Guardian last year: “On average, in care homes there are about 2,800 unfilled manager jobs at any one time while, despite concerted recruitment drives, vacancy rates and turnover rates continue to climb.” In addition the true sector vacancy rate calculated by Skills For Care in 2018 was 8.0%, equivalent to around 110,000 vacancies at any given time. This presents a very real challenge for healthcare organisations and internal recruiters who are seeking to attract the best candidates. Bringing new people into the sector is also proving to be a challenge and the overspend on temporary agency staff is on the rise according to the latest CQC State of Care report. Attracting a younger demographic is important in order to replace those who will retire in the next few years. This is made even more vital when you consider that a further 650,000 job places will need to be filled by 2035 to cope with the care needs of an ageing population.
These clear reviews and official warnings prove that Go Apply’s services are in demand. By offering an innovative alternative to traditional temporary staff agencies and permanent placement agencies we can significantly reduce costs and damaging agency reliance, offer improved continuity of staff, plus a legacy to our clients for the future. This is also a service that we guarantee based on results.
