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.
