Seven Resourcing supplies temporary staff across eight core sectors, and played a pivotal role in supplying crucial temporary health and social care staff to the front line during the fight against Covid-19.
- Seven does not offer zero hours contracts. The agency primarily offers short-term (one to two months) and long-term (six to 12 months) temporary contracts, as well as ad-hoc shifts on project work.
- In social care, the contracts are usually long-term temporary positions, varying from three months to a year. The roles are mostly for social workers, support workers and in management Because of the candidate-poor nature of the sector and the quality of Seven’s candidates, these positions often roll over and staff can stay for years in the same roles as temporary workers. Seven works with many county councils in the country and many of the leading government-run and private social care services.
- In nursing, 75% of the business comes from ad-hoc/shift-based roles. This is an extremely demanding market as hundreds of new shifts across multiple sites have to be organised daily; hundreds of staff nationwide have to be managed, and up-to-date compliance documents for all of them have to be maintained. Popular roles include mental health nurses, general/staff nurses and healthcare a
- Seven supplies staff to leading UK healthcare organisations, including the NHS, Virgin Care, Care UK, Priory Group, Elysium, Cygnet Health Care and Thornbury Community Services.
- The life sciences team work in a more corporate environment, supplying temporary pharmaceutical professionals and business experts to some of the world’s largest organisations.
