Why Cucumber?

Staff shortages are an issue that is all too common in the healthcare sector – and it’s not unusual to find yourself shorthanded with very little warning. In cases of this kind, you will need to arrange temporary cover quickly.

As a healthcare provider, it is likely that you will need to engage agency workers at short notice on a regular basis to cover highly specialist roles, but no matter how urgent the situation, temporary healthcare staff recruitment should always be undertaken carefully and with a strong focus on qualifications and safety as well as speed.

The team at Cucumber Recruitment should be the first people you call when you find yourself in need of immediate healthcare cover. We can look back over years of providing the highest standard in professional medical support – with all of our personnel offering relevant skills and experience.

Whether your organisation is a care home, a health centre, a live-in care provider or any other entity providing medical assistance and support, every professional that you engage to deliver care must offer a high quality service and hold all relevant qualifications.

It can be difficult to find the right fit at short-notice, but at Cucumber Recruitment, that is our speciality. We communicate clearly, offer adaptable rates, work hard to ensure high attendance levels and continue to train our staff to achieve the best possible levels of performance.
