Recruitment Support for Health & Social Care Organisations

Does your community group provide care? Are you recruiting, or are planning to recruiting new staff soon – such as care support workers, personal assistants or admin officers?

The South London Partnership is offering incentives to voluntary sector organisations in South West London (Merton, Sutton, Croydon, Wandsworth, Kingston and Richmond) which provide services in the Health and Social Care sector and are about to recruit new members of staff. 

This new programme is funded by the NHS Integrated Care Partnership until March 2025 and offers support with:

  • publicising roles
  • screening/vetting of candidates
  • 3-week paid placements (£900 per placement)
  • ongoing in-work support to both candidates and employers for 12 months, if candidates are interviewed and continue beyond their placements.

The funding can support 50 employees across South West London to go through the programme in private, NHS or voluntary sector settings.

Interested organisations need to be CQC registered if providing care services, and hold genuine vacancies.

The programme offers employers the opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ through a brokerage service and support the recruitment of hard-to-fill and retain roles.
