About International Recruitment East
Welcome to the international recruitment information hub
This hub is designed to provide help, support and guidance. It is for anyone in the East of England who is involved in international recruitment within the adult social care sector.
The hub includes a wide range of information to make it easier to understand what can feel like a complex process. We will expand the information over time so this website will be an online centre of excellence. It will bring together a wide range of resources, including:
- Training webinars for care providers and internationally recruited staff
- Access to one-to-one support
- Training materials
- Advice and information
A total commitment to ethical recruitment is at the heart of the international recruitment programme in the East of England (International Recruitment East).
We want to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our internationally recruited staff. We also want to ensure the very best quality of care for our residents.
The programme is funded by the Department of Health and Social Care's international recruitment fund. This fund has been set up for 2022/23 - 2023/24. The aim is to support care providers of adult social care services in international recruitment. It does this by promoting collaborative arrangements, simplifying processes and reducing the burden.
