When the Meallmore Care Group found themselves with a serious shortage of care staff, they knew exactly who to turn to – Caring People Recruitment.

“Find as many good care staff as you can as quickly as possible,” they told us.

So we did – and three weeks later 19 new care assistants arrived from Poland to start work in 5 of their care homes in Scotland.

Meallmore area managers Carol-Anne Foote and Anne Mawdsley joined Caring People’s business development director Ben Livermore on a three-day recruitment visit to Poland.

“It was hectic but it was really successful,” says Ben. “We worked with three of our recruitment partners in Warsaw, Krakow and Katowice. Thirty applicants were interviewed, 26 of whom were offered jobs. Out of these, 22 accepted and 19 of them arrived to start work over a three-day period in early December.”

Within a couple of days of arriving in the UK, all 19 new recruits were whisked off to the Fairburn House activity centre near Inverness for a three-day induction and team-building programme.

Their CRB Disclosure applications had all been completed, so by the end of their short stay at Fairburn House their POVAs had been received and they were ready to start their new jobs as care assistants.

Accompanied interview trips to Poland are an excellent way of recruiting significant numbers of staff in one go. “One of our larger clients does one trip with us every month and successfully recruits anything between 10 and 20 care staff,” says Ben.
