Proud to be different...
We are proud to be different from other agencies.
First of all, Cavalry is owned and run by healthcare professionals and this expertise allows us to make the best matches between staff and clients.
It also means that we have a deep understanding of the work our staff perform – because we’ve done it ourselves!
Secondly, we, too, are care providers – so we know at first hand the problems and priorities of our clients.
Whether it’s ongoing staff shortages, finding holiday or last minute sickness cover or providing one-to-one care whilst keeping regular staffing at a safe level – we’re here to help.
Why choose Cavalry...
We pay our staff well to help ensure that we recruit and retain the best people. Despite this we're often able to beat the prices of other nursing agencies as we are an ethical, family-run business with no external shareholders to satisfy.
We have rigorous, values-based recruitment processes, so that our clients can be confident in the staff we send them, ensuring they have a current, enhanced, DBS check, 2 references, at least 6 months’ experience and the correct in-date training and qualifications for the job. We have assisted clients to improve their CQC ratings and have worked successfully with many turnaround managers.
Our local coordinators carefully match the right staff member to the right assignment and keep our clients informed at all times. We have dedicated account managers and we also have an out of hours central support team so that we are able to action requests for staff and update our clients 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
We have a large pool of competent and caring, flexible and reliable registered nurses, healthcare assistants and support workers and have invested in the latest software so we are able to reach large numbers of appropriate staff to cover your shift as quickly as possible.
If you prefer a particular nurse or carer, let us know and we’ll make it a priority to book them for your shifts. Temp to perm arrangements are also available when a staff member is a particularly good fit for a home. Often providers that switch to Cavalry see a decrease in their agency hours as we help to fix the problem!
Cavalry brings you outstanding staff at sensible prices. Rather than profiteering at your expense, we pay our care staff well and support lots of charities!
Just give us a call if you’d like to find out more,
We look forward to working with you!
