Specialist Health and Social Care Recruitment Agency.

Louise, Founding Director

Louise has worked in recruitment for over 10 years and has always been passionate about people development.

A career change 10 years ago led Louise to working within the temporary staffing market in the Healthcare Sector, at the time it was a stop gap but she’s found her place.
Louise instantly found a keen interest in Mental Health and Social Care, wanting to really understand the environments she sent clinicans and support staff to work in so she could match the skills and attributes of nurses and support staff to the needs of the service and service user.
Underataking numerous courses in Mental Health, Young peoples mental health and Learning Disability care, Louise got a deep understanding of individual needs and what skills and values were essential to ensure staff made a difference.
2 years ago Louise made the transition to permanent recruitment, again within the Mental Health and Social Care sector, focusing on longer term hires and supporting Hospitals, Care Homes, Children’s Home, Community service providers and addiction treatment clinics to recruit and retain talented staff.

Lisa, Director

Lisa was born in Kent but is extremely proud of her Singaporean/British heritage. She currently lives in Surrey making her ideally located to look after all of our South East clients.
Lisa’s home life is very male dominated, with her husband, 3 energetic boys and just recently adding another male to the mix with Arnie the puppy. You will often find Lisa on the side of a sports pitch cheering her sons on in either a Rugby or a Football match.
If that wasnt enough to keep her busy Lisa has also spent the last 17 years flying around the world, working as part time cabin crew has provided opportunities to travel and see some amazing places.
While Lisa still works part time cabin crew she was also looking for a role that would challenge her and allow her to use her exceptional people skills so a career in recruitment seemed a natural path.  Lisa is very much a people person, and it really matters to her to understand your motivation for finding a new role and what you are looking for.
Lisa’s eldest son is diagnosed with ADHD/ASD and CAMHS, OT’s, Nurses and Doctors have always played a big part of her life, so naturally takes a keen interest in supporting these types services to find high quality staff to ensure others, like her son, are able to access the best care and support that they deserve.
Like Louise, Lisa soon realised working within the Mental Health and Social Care sector was the right place for her, she is extremely passionate and committed to finding the right staff for each service she works on behalf of.
