Overseas Resourcing

Local authorities in the UK are facing significant workforce/retention issues when trying to recruit experienced social work staff. This is compounded by a lack of students choosing to make social work their vocation.

HCL Social Care has designed a solution to assist our clients in facing their ever-increasing recruitment challenges, which presents local authorities with an opportunity to extend and diversify their workforce to match the community they serve.

International permanent recruitment with HCL Social Care offers unrivalled access to social work professionals from around the globe. Our expertise in this field and a proven history of sourcing quality overseas candidates allows our partners to accurately plan for spikes in demand, reduce reliance on agency staff and deliver improvements for service users across the board.

How can we make a difference?

We work collaboratively with our clients to build bespoke volume recruitment campaigns that have an immediate impact, potentially saving you £25,000 per candidate in their first 12 months. We manage all aspects of the hiring process (including advertising, filtering and processing CVs, pre-selecting candidates, interview process) and provide comprehensive aftercare services.

We also conduct:

• Comprehensive candidate pre-screening
• Telephone/Skype and face-to-face interviews
• Assistance with HCPC scrutiny/registration 
• Visa/sponsorships and right to work in the UK
• Verification/requesting in-country police check
• Collection of references to cover the last five years

We want to make sure overseas social workers settle successfully into their new jobs and want to stay long-term. Therefore, our aftercare service is second-to-none and it includes help with: 

• Travelling to the UK
• Accommodation
• National Insurance number and bank accounts

With over 10 years of international hiring experience, we have successfully delivered numerous recruitment projects from different countries such as: Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Australia, Canada and many more. Recruiting from overseas with HCL Social Care also poses no financial risk to our clients as we don’t invoice until your candidate starts and we offer favourable rebate periods.
