We felt strongly that the care sector lacked and needed a dedicated forum for jobs, good news stories, and useful information for candidates. Care & Support Jobs was built by us to do just this. We invite you to create your own profile and advertise your jobs for FREE. That’s with our thanks to you – the care sector.

Cohesion’s results were very impressive. The effort that Cohesion make to keep candidates engaged and move them efficiently through the recruitment process was key to helping us achieve a high attendance rate at interview and very low drop out post interview. I have been impressed with how responsive they have been to any issues raised and their ability to deliver candidates in a difficult recruitment market.

Today, we have a healthy recruitment pipeline in most locations, our vacant hours are drastically reduced which has a huge impact on agency costs and quality of care. The average time to offer has reduced considerably and more encouraging is the quality of our new colleagues who are recruited for their ‘values’.
