Recruitment Days

Finding staff is a time consuming process. Reading CVs, conducting interviews and making the all important final decision can take a lot of time and resources.

That’s where we can help.

Through Recruitment Days we condense the process into one day and aim to fill your available positions either the same day, or next, guaranteed.

We find the candidates, read the CVs and pre-screen candidates before booking the interviews for a day that works best for you. Our thorough pre-screening process means that only the highest quality candidates make it through. 
If you want to know more, or you have roles that you need filled urgently, contact us now on 01202 854777, 07785 331104, or 07810 349555. You can also email us at recruitment@carefirstuk.co.uk today.



Reduce Agency bills with top-quality, permanent staff.

We have previously filled anywhere from 3 to 5 placements from one day of interviewing, and up to 5 to 10 placements in a week.

We have Recruitment Specialists in various roles including Elderly Care, Learning Disabilities, Nursing, Management and more.

With multiple quality candidates interviewed in on day, you'll have plenty of choice.

Removes stress and saves you time.

We have previously provided 150 placements for one client, in one year.

At Care First, we're dedicated to you, so you can expect 24/7 weekday and weekend support.

I applied for the role of support worker with care first uk. The following day I received feedback and was guided every step of the way to make my application as successful as possible. The company itself differs from other companies I have applied for, in the sense that Care First really do care about your well-being. I am so excited to work for such a caring company. I would recommend applying if you fit the roles as you will most definitely be well looked after!
