ASHIA AKRAM, SOCIAL WORKER
“I've been with Sanctuary now, since 2008 and have had the same consultant throughout (Deane Garrard). I've got to say, the service provided by Sanctuary has been second to none. It’s been absolutely exceptional.
I have been with agencies in between and I've always come back to Sanctuary because they've been amazing. They've treated me really well, they've always found the work I was looking for and they've provided me with support throughout my journey as a social worker.
Actually, I would go as far as to say without them, I don’t think I would be the social worker that I am today.”
JENNIFER DAWODU, SOCIAL WORKER
“The application process was very, very swift.
My consultant has guided me through interview techniques and has ensured I am prepared for interview and he has helped me come a long way.”
CHARLIE BRIDGER, SOCIAL WORKER
“As a social worker, it’s important for me to feel supported by my agency.
Sanctuary have given me a named worker, he makes me feel supported.
Even when I’m making decisions to move jobs, he’s helping me look for other work and helping me end my current position without any judgement.”
JEAN BANDA, SENIOR PRACTITIONER
“I've been working with Sanctuary since 2010 and my consultant has always ensured that I have the right opportunities offered to me. Even my move to a senior post was well thought out and thoroughly discussed with me. The staff at Sanctuary are like family; all are friendly, courteous and super efficient. Any queries I've had have always been resolved in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Sanctuary to anyone considering locum work.“
DAVID MCCRACKEN, SOCIAL WORKER
“My Sanctuary consultant has so much gravity and common sense in his approach to his work. He is polite, quick on the uptake, innovative and very motivational. He insisted on travelling up to meet me personally in Leeds to go through the paperwork to register me with Sanctuary at the start and has never failed to be less than polite, responsive, keen to obtain results and supportive throughout the time I have worked with him. Candidates like myself hugely value his work; he is undoubtedly a huge asset to your company, with excellent prospects to develop further new skills. His sense of loyalty and commitment to maintaining a personal and honest (whilst always professional) approach is greatly valued by me.”
ELAINE ENNIS, SOCIAL WORKER
“I have been delighted with the service that Sanctuary has provided. My consultant has always been friendly, approachable and efficient in getting me assignments. I worked through Sanctuary initially in Scotland and then when I moved to England in 2013, he helped me through the process of registering with the HCPC and organised background checks before offering me a position with a local authority which has been enjoyable and rewarding. I have since been successful in gaining a permanent job with the same local authority and will be starting my new contract soon.
I am pleased Sanctuary was able to help me make the transition to work in a new country and in getting settled into social work here. I would, and do, recommend Sanctuary to other social workers.”
JULIE JACKSON, FAMILY SUPPORT TEAM MANAGER
“I would like to highly commend my Sanctuary Social Care consultant. He takes a great deal of time to ensure I am happy in what I am doing and planning what I wish to do next. He is very knowledgeable and professional, and I would recommend Sanctuary to anyone on the basis of my involvement with him. This is the first time I have done agency work and I firmly believe I will continue to do this kind of work on the basis of the care and attention I have been given.”
OGO, SOCIAL WORKER
“I signed up with Sanctuary Social Care so I could find a position that would enable me to spend more time with my child and be in a better financial position. I am thrilled with the job that I was able to secure and the pay rate offered to me. My consultant has been of great assistance to me; supporting me with my career development and going above and beyond to help me get employment in my desired field of work that caters to my family life and financial needs.
I commend Sanctuary for the continuous high standard of service, hard work and caring nature. I would definitely be recommending others to Sanctuary.”
IVA GALLAGHER, SENIOR PRACTITIONER
“I have worked with Sanctuary for the past year and cannot praise my consultant enough. He is very honest, an active listener and truly committed to the individual he is working with and their professional development. I have worked with a number of social work agencies over the past 3 years and can confirm that the service received from Sanctuary is excellent. They make a real difference.”
LF, SOCIAL WORK TEAM MANAGER
“After 12 years in a permanent position in a local authority, I decided to register with an agency and a colleague recommended Sanctuary Social Care. Since joining, my consultant has been exceptionally helpful and has sourced suitable positions for me within various authorities, always going the extra mile to achieve positive results for me. He is a consummate professional and a credit to Sanctuary Social Care.
I have moved up the career ladder into a management position and have remained with Sanctuary, simply because of the trust built over the years. I am now able to approach my consultant and his team when recruiting staff for my current team. I would happily recommend Sanctuary Social Care to colleagues at all levels."
SHANE SANDER, SOCIAL WORKER
“I would not hesitate to recommend Sanctuary to others as I have personally experienced a service and support over and above what has been expected from my experience with other agencies.”
STEPHEN LONSDALE, SOCIAL WORK TEAM MANAGER
“From my initial contact with Sanctuary Social Care to the present date, I have been extremely impressed with the standard of professionalism displayed by all employees at the organisation, but particularly my designated consultants; they have provided me with excellent support and their communication has been outstanding. In my experience I have found that both consistently work within the higher echelons of professional practice and I would highly recommend them and the organisation they represent, Sanctuary Social Care.”
