Andy's bio

Never before has the acquisition of talent been so critical to the success of healthcare businesses in an ever-changing and growing sector.

 As the Manager of our Health and Social Care permanent recruitment team, my finger is always on the pulse to source and secure the best candidates in the market, using my knowledge of the industry and networking skills. As a result, I have successfully placed support workers, nurses, registered managers, social workers, allied health professionals, quality leads and executive-level healthcare professionals.

With 13 years of sector experience, my in-depth understanding allows me to match clients and candidates not just based on skills and experience, but also on culture and values.

Whether you require a outsourced campaign to recruit multiple roles for a new or transforming service, or need a head-hunter for specific niche positions, I would be delighted to help. And, if you are looking for your next healthcare role, please get in touch.

What people say about us

Recruitment Team Lead

​"We engaged with Search due to a sudden large growth in our business. Search arranged assessment days which involved booking off site venues, pre-screening candidates and booking interview slots.

During a 3 month period, Search helped to reduce our vacancies and we continue to have an on-going relationship with the company."

​"I have used Search for over 4 years and found them to excel in both the provision of qualified, experienced support workers and administrators. We have built a very strong relationship with Search in this time.

Their response time, the quality of the staff provided and the friendly, professional and, above all, extremely effective nature of their consultants means that I expect our relationship will strengthen further in the coming years."

​"I have been registered with Search for 5 months now and I can’t explain how helpful they have been from the start- I couldn’t recommend them more.

They really do care about their agency workers. They placed me in a lovely care home, gave me regular hours and always paid me on the correct days for the correct hours."
