Search Healthcare operate across the UK and specialises in the volume provision of nurses and support workers to the health and social care industry. Demand for temporary and ad hoc supply to care homes, hospital wards and supported living services has increased for many reasons, as has the desire for the part-time and flexible balance working which Search can offer candidates.

With a strong presence in the North West, Yorkshire, East Midlands, and South East, the team previously supported Birmingham from our Leicester and Manchester branches. However, a rise in demand from national healthcare clients made the launch of a Birmingham-based office a necessity. Six months on, the team now assign over 100 workers per week and serve a broad client base across Birmingham.

Chris Pritchard, Senior Director of Search Healthcare, said: “Birmingham and the West Midlands is a hugely diverse and fast-moving city region. It has a strong culture and identity, a growing infrastructure, and with scores of universities and colleges, a large pool of talent looking for flexible opportunities".

With an award-winning heritage, Search Healthcare work quickly to process the vital compliance requirements that can often hold back a crucial labour force. “We identified that it is paramount to offer candidates a straightforward registration process to reduce the on boarding period without compromising on quality and diligence. We have a strong compliance and specialist training team who work round the clock to maintain the high fulfilment required. Having this resource immediately available has supported the rapid growth of our Birmingham branch."

Heading up our team in Birmingham is Martin Campbell, who came to Search after eight years working in the healthcare recruitment sector. He said: “I chose Search because it was an amazing opportunity to join a company with a real passion for Healthcare. The branch has gone from strength to strength over the last six months and is continuing to grow, not just with the services and support that we provide, but also my team of dedicated people who have a flair and passion for Healthcare.”

Search Healthcare is a leading supplier for services supporting people with mental illnesses, learning disabilities, vulnerable young people, and older people with health and social care needs.
