Recruiting the right people

recruitment iconRecruiting people for their values and behaviours helps you attract people who know what it means to provide high quality care and support, who are more likely to stay.

When recruiting people, it’s important to consider if they:

  • have the behaviours and values you’re looking for
  • will fit with your organisational culture
  • have realistic expectations about what it’s like to work in care.

Some roles do require specific qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience which should also be considered.

Don't just fill the vacancies. Fill them with the right people.
