Adult Social Care Worker

Partnering to create a desirable assignment in a competitive market

The combination of a maternity cover and an influx of work led to Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council requiring an experienced, part-time Locum to support their busy, Adult Social Care legal team.


Priorities Supported:

  • Recruitment of an Adult Social Care Solicitor with the experience and personality required to embed quickly into this busy team

  • Retain a specialist legal recruiter to take ownership of this requirement via the council’s MSP

  • A cost-effective solution that would support the team three days per week


Experience Applied

  • After the role was released on the MSP, we spoke with the client to refine the details of this role to ensure our response would be robust, accurate and efficient

  • As a market leader in legal recruitment, we were able to partner with the client to shape a desirable brief for this competitive market

  • Our market insight and team structures meant we could quickly pinpoint and brief suitable candidates


Outcomes Delivered

  • A qualified and committed candidate was submitted within 24 hours of the role release and was offered the position following an online interview

  • Understanding the high market demand for Adult Social Care Solicitors, we were fully up to date with the candidate’s other offers enabling us to create a package that would secure the candidate

  • Supplying under the MSP umbrella in close partnership with the client, we provided an effective and compliant process ahead of competitors on the framework


'From start to finish, the recruitment process was excellent. Venn Group’s attention to detail and dedication in understanding my requirements are second to none. They are approachable, reliable and professional. Their knowledge is exceptional; not only limited to identifying candidates who have the right skills and experience for the job but also people who are a great fit for my team.
