Our Recruitment Standards
Our reputation is built upon providing the highest quality care staff. CANDLELIGHT 747
HEALTHCARE is proud of the rigorous internal Quality Assurance Systems that are continually
reviewed and monitored. We follow a stringent recruitment procedure to ensure we only
supply care staffs that are compliant.
All our candidates are screened by our recruitment specialists including face-to-face interviews.
This ensures that the candidate has the appropriate care experience, as well as local
knowledge and awareness.
We require our staff to have relevant qualifications and experience for the services they will
be asked to provide. In some cases candidates will already have achieved qualifications such
as QCF level 2 or 3.
Our team is responsible for each candidate / employee / staff member’s Disclosure Barring
Services (DBS) checks, POCA and SOVA checks, work history, health declaration, experience
and qualifications and up to date references to ensure we have a complete understanding
of their capabilities and competencies. We also assess their on-going training needs,
ensuring that staff are continuing to deliver a high standard of service.
