A new Suffolk-based recruitment business has launched with a focus on helping adult social care employers find the right staff.

With a head office in Needham Market, Care Careers East finds placements for experienced staff and also wants to works with individuals who would like to start working in the care sector by matching them with existing vacancies.

The business is a not for profit organisation and a sister enterprise to The Suffolk Brokerage, which is dedicated to raising care standards in the county.

Care Careers East Recruitment Services Manager, Emma White, said: “We have a successful track-record in helping, and expert knowledge of, the local health and social care market. Launching a recruitment services company to support the sector to get the quality staff it needs, as well as helping people looking for care work find the right job, seemed like a natural extension of what we already do.

She added: “We can offer care providers the benefit of our specialist knowledge over generalist recruitment agencies. Many already know us and trust us and we have a good reputation with employers. We have set up as a not for profit organisation so we can offer low-cost, but high-quality recruitment solutions.”
