You Care, We Care Too

The mental health sector is complex and unforgiving in its nature. The repercussions of making the wrong hire can be severe which is why our service is designed to provide our clients with a stress-free recruitment solution.

We can find top mental health talent so you don’t have to.

Drawing on our comprehensive, national network of mental health talent, we register only the very strongest candidates with a proven track record in their fields. This results in service improvement, better patient care and gives our clients the confidence to book our staff no matter what degree of support a patient may need.

We are completely transparent in everything we do and will welcome our clients to the office to audit our files at any time. We operate to a framework level of compliancy, giving our clients piece of mind that not only are they being sent high quality staff but that all the necessary compliancy checks are in place too. We specialise in sending staff to last minute, hard to fill shifts and will do our upmost for every potential booking to ensure patient safety. Working with Paragon Locums means you will invest in better quality candidates and longer lasting relationships.

  • 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!

  • 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.
