What our Clients & Candidates Say

  • TEAM MANAGER, SOUTH EAST
    I started working with Paragon in March and their process was quick and effective. My consultant is always open and honest with me, making me feel I can trust their service. I was able to transition from Social Worker to team manager within 4 weeks of working with Paragon Locums within the same local authority, and that is a plus!

    It was refreshing to see the calibre of candidates that were shortlisted for interview and their breadth of experience, which may prove helpful in the future as we may commission them to work with other parts of the service.
