Resource Finder

To help you in your search for quality, reliable staff, CMM brings you a selection of recruitment organisations.

Recruitment and retention are common issues in the social care sector. A recent personnel survey by the National Care Forum found that, amongst its members, average staff turnover in care homes and domiciliary care providers supporting older people sat at 23%. 20% of those leaving did so within one to two years of starting. With figures like that, it’s important that you can find new candidates or organisations to help you recruit the right people who will remain with you.
