Make a Difference, Be the Difference

We understand the rewarding yet challenging and often stressful nature of social work. Therefore, we are committed to making the process of finding a new role as convenient as possible for our candidates, so they can focus on the most important thing; getting the job done and changing people’s lives for the better.

If you’re looking for your next opportunity, are seeking a promotion or simply wish to have an intelligent, honest conversation with a market specialist, we’re here to help. Rather than being just another number, you’ll receive a consultant that truly cares and takes the time to get to know you.

We offer above-market pay rates if you’re the exceptional candidate we’re looking for, and our in-house compliancy and payroll teams will ensure you have a smooth and hassle-free onboarding process.

Submit your CV

Once you’re settled into your new role, our friendly team will regularly check in and meet with you to make sure you’re happy within your role. We’re always thinking about what’s next, so if you’re coming to the end of your assignment, we’ll proactively look for suitable roles for you, as you build your career with us.

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!

    - TEAM MANAGER, SOUTH EAST

  • RECRUITMENT LEADER, LONDON
    I am confident in approaching Paragon for advice regarding the market and candidates’ expectations, and trust that their advice is honest based on their thorough understanding of the industry.

  • PRACTICE LEADER, NORTH WEST
    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.
