In relocating from Sydney to London, RT Social Care were invaluable in helping me to find a job. They promptly dealt with the paperwork, and had set up an interview for me within days of getting off the plane. James Norgate was highly personable and professional, and helped me to manage the transition easily. I would highly recommend them to any social worker looking for work, especially as they seem to make that extra effort to ensure that you are valued as a professional, but also as a person. They have made me re-evaluate my opinion of recruitment agencies after years of impersonal service.

RT Social Care has been able to provide our busy Child Protection Team with experienced practitioners often at short notice. The company exceeds its customer service and ensures that both their client and the employer are well looked after. They make regular calls without being inconvenient and ensure that communication is effective and professional.

RT Social Care has been my recruitment agency of choice for several years now and personally I would not place my trust in another recruitment agency to the same extent. RT Social Care has never failed me with regards to gaining me employment which reflects both my skills and needs at any given time. As I have risen through the ranks I have continued to utilise RT Social Care as a source of staff, such is my trust in the firm. I know that they will only put forward staff who are competent, skilled and able to ‘hit the ground running’ and as a manager this is extremely important because performance targets evidence our progress in the modern world of social work.

I have known David and RT Social Care since 2009 now. They are the only agency I will use and 5 consecutive assignments at the times when I have come to the UK to locum are testimony to their ability to match the right candidate to the right position. Dave has supported me throughout - even fetching me from the airport on one occasion! I look forward to his weekly calls to ensure I am happy and enjoying my job. He’s a calming force who I often refer to when I feel I lack the skill of diplomacy! RT Social Care is a company which takes a genuine interest in their candidates. They are definitely in the right industry and epitomise what social care should be. If there was a rugby team named RT Social Care I’d be supporting them!!!

Over three years ago I joined RT Social Care after a colleague of mine recommended them to me. David met me at my work that week to complete the paperwork (and even bought me coffee!) – the process of signing up was easy and fuss-free. Dave and the team continued to keep in contact with me when I left work to study for two years, and ensured my return to work was smooth. I really appreciate RT Social Care’s efficiency and approachability and I will continue to recommend them to my colleagues.

When I arrived in England in June 2010 it was a bad time to be looking for work in Adult Social Care as there had been a lot of budgetary cuts and there was hardly any work available. I signed up with several recruitment agencies and who ‘apparently’ searched for work for me, and after 5 months of looking, and not a single interview later, I almost gave up and went home. A friend recommended I sign up to RT Social Care and I could tell from the first point of contact that this agency was different to the rest. RT Social Care a smaller company, offering a very personal service, meaning you don’t get lost in the pack. Within weeks RT Social Care had secured me a couple of interviews, and within a month I had myself a job! I can’t thank the Team at RT Social Care (especially David) for all of their support over the years. I highly recommend anyone moving to the UK or thinking about becoming a locum to work through them.

Making the move over to the UK from Australia was a big decision. Not only are you leaving your friends and family but also the security of your job as well! There is a huge level of anxiety involved in the whole process. What made it particularly easy for me was having a recruiter who was willing to develop a true understanding of what I wanted in a job. I was lucky to have Katie Fitzgerald, who really made the whole process as smooth and easy as possible. You really feel like you know your recruiter and Katie went out of her way to find a position that was well matched to both my level of experience and which reflected my preferences around what I was looking for in a role. In this sense my experience with RT Social Care was quite different to working with other agencies where you often feel that you are just another person looking for a job. RT Social Care offers approachable and pleasant recruiters who also have a great expertise in placing their clients. I found Katie to be very supportive throughout the whole process. It is also comforting to know that you will not be forgotten once you have been placed in a position as well, because you have continuous contact with your recruiter. Thank you RT Social Care!

I was unemployed and feeling a bit low when I encountered RT Social Care recruitment. The support and encouragement that I received were an unforgettable experience. I am presently in the same employment where RT Social Care secured my contract. I enjoy the personal telephone contacts from RT Social Care to ensure that I am doing OK and the ongoing support. RT Social Care are a bunch of positive professionals armed with common sense and equipped with the tools to get you on the right track.

My recruiter, David, has been a tremendous help in my transition from Chicago to London. He has helped me every step of the way, from registration and background checks to my CV and interviewing preparation. I look forward to starting my employment next week thanks to RT Social Care. I recommend them to any social worker looking to move from overseas.
(Stephanie, Qualified Social Worker)
I am writing to express my thanks to RT Social Care for the continuous flow of senior management assignments that they have successfully secured for me over the past few years.
In particular I would like to express my deep felt gratitude to James Norgate, my personal consultant, for his professionalism and commitment. I have to say that, over the past 20 years or so that I have been dealing with social work agencies, I have seldom encountered a more amiable, honest, resourceful and hard-working human resource professional.
