“Delivering due diligence and service excellence”

The demand for suitably trained and experienced support staff is rapidly increasing as healthcare practice evolves to cover an ever-expanding need amongst the UK population. A reported shortage of more than 100,000 staff across all NHS Trusts and 110,000 personnel in adult social care is predicted to rise to almost 250,000 over the next decade (Kings Fund, 2018).

Cucumber Recruitment specialise in providing Nurses, Healthcare Assistants, and Support Workers. Our commitment to training support and career development ensures all staff are constantly improving their skill sets and extending their capabilities.

The clear benefits of working at Cucumber Recruitment are intended to set a high bar in staff retention, and in delivering due diligence and service excellence for clients in all areas of care support. An extensive and ongoing training schedule is in place, which is designed for supporting career progression. Among a full and rewarding package, staff can expect to receive:

  • Above average pay
  • Flexible hours
  • Pension Scheme
  • Holiday Pay
  • Free Uniform and DBS check

Equipped for carrying out a range of duties

The standardised training, which is monitored by The Care Quality Commission to ensure compliance, ensures the right foundations for learning and development are provided at the start of a support worker’s career. Of equal importance, our various training programmes are also intended for building a sense of professional self-value at the outset.

Clients are assured that our team personnel are always equipped for carrying out a range of duties, which are up to date with latest standards of efficiency, compliance and outcome effectiveness.

Cucumber Recruitment staff are bound by a professional code of conduct focused upon:

  • Attendance Rates and Punctuality
  • Standards of dress and presentation
  • Quality of care
  • Consideration and respect for others
  • Confidentiality, honesty and integrity

Satisfy the most rigorous of standards

From candidate screening to ongoing training and monitored supervision, our priority is to always provide our clients with quality of care professionals expected to satisfy the most rigorous of standards and competencies. This approach is essential in today’s diverse healthcare environment where support is increasingly required for a variety of specialist care and clinical needs. Our understanding of the challenges faced by local communities is at the forefront of our strong partnership building policy and personalised care package provision.

It is essential that our staff always act in the best interests of patients and recipients of their care support. Training protocols are in place to ensure that our staff are fully compliant with respecting the freedoms of residents in care homes and patients in hospitals, and their rights not compromised or inappropriately restricted by the care received.

Exemplary service standards add value over the long term

Quality of care, compassion and regulatory compliance are the value constants of our staff training programme. It is not only critical that we provide a high quality of care but it is also a priority that exemplary service standards add value, especially over a long term booking.

At a time of growing care support shortage in the UK – and when so often other recruitment providers fail to live up to expectations – Cucumber Recruitment can be relied upon to deliver a quality and cost-effective approach that only a managed service can offer.
