Sanctuary Personnel were very helpful to Norfolk Recovery Partnership (NRP) over the last 18 months of their service operations. They supplied a number of very good quality candidates to the service in roles of nurses and recovery workers and worked with the service to bring candidates into roles in a timely way within the costs of the service. They dealt directly with the electronic NHS Trust infrastructure to arrange timesheets and invoices. The consultants established a very good knowledge of the service ad had very good understanding of the roles required to deliver services. They visited NRP to meet team leads to understand the changing needs and responded promptly if difficulties occurred.
Head of Clinical Practice
I have found Sanctuary to be fast, reliable and with a sound understanding of Substance Misuse and the qualities required in a candidate. The people they have supplied have been first class in terms of attitude, experience, knowledge and flexibility. They have sound processes around administration and respond to requests promptly and professionally.
We have worked with Sanctuary for a number of years and have an excellent working relationship. They have a high level of integrity as a recruiter and put forward only those fully compliant candidates who closely match our requirements. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sanctuary for their excellent, cost-effective service.
