How much does it cost to hire healthcare staff from us?

At Avanta Care, we’re renowned for being pioneers of flexible recruitment in the healthcare industry. And this, our new pay grade system, is another example of our ongoing commitment to innovation.

With four distinct levels, we offer care homes like yours the freedom to choose healthcare assistants and nursing staff that suit your needs. Whatever your priority.

It’s fairer too.

While other healthcare recruitment agencies might charge you one, flat-fee regardless of who you hire, at Avanta Care we match what you pay with what you choose.

Take a look.

As you can see, we group our carers by training and experience, not competence or commitment. Whoever you choose to hire from Avanta Care, they’ll always have a proven aptitude and ambition for work in the care industry.

Which grade is best for your care home?

If you need urgent cover for a sick member of staff at your nursing home, then we recommend you choose a healthcare assistant at grade 3 or 4. That secures you a carer who can hit the ground running.

If you’re already well-staffed but keen to think ahead, try hiring carers at grade 1 or 2. Let them shadow your more experienced members of staff and they’ll quickly become valuable members of your team.

Whichever grade matches your priority, rest assured that each person in our talent pool undergoes our stringent screening process before we put them forward for interview. That means full, completed reference, language and background checks, to protect you, your patients or residents.

Remember: Helping grade 1 care assistants finish their Care Certificate training isn’t just an industry requirement. It’s first-hand proof they’re capable, on the job, at a pace that suits you both. It’s also your chance to pass on extra practical knowledge that improves quality of care in real-life settings.

That’s good for patients or residents alike, and it’s good for business too.
