Paradigm Consultancy

A Paradigm shift is a fundamental change in the basic concepts and practices of a particular discipline.

That’s what we’re doing in social care recruitment.

Working closely with our clients right across the health and social care sector, it was clear they were crying out for the services of a permanent social care recruitment specialist. 

By standing shoulder to shoulder with our clients, our social care consultants work as an extension of their team. A trusted partner and sometimes a critical friend, we’ll do our utmost to ensure they have the people they need – on their own payroll – to achieve their most ambitious objectives and support the most vulnerable people in our communities.

We’re proud to connect social workers with employers who create a positive and safe environment for adults and children. They recognise the need to support their staff in what will always be a challenging profession.

No two social workers are the same. Some feel liberated by the opportunity of working as a locum, but many others are unsettled by not knowing how long they’ll be in the job, and having to readjust and align to a new team’s culture. 

They are all looking for the support they need to build lasting relationships with children and families.

Attracting permanent candidates

In a candidate-short market, it can be difficult to be heard. Paradigm can advise local authorities on how to stand out from the crowd. We often recommend that they:

  • Streamline existing recruitment processes
  • Offer flexible working to accommodate individual needs
  • Provide truly competitive rates of pay

Many social workers are now thinking it makes sense to consider permanent roles in re-organised, rejuvenated local authority teams and Pertemps Social Care’s specialist consultants can help attract the high-calibre candidates required.
