Backstop is a specialist temporary recruitment and training agency. We were set up in 2000 by a qualified social worker who wanted an agency that has social care values at heart. Speak to us and you will discover we speak the same language as you, specialising in social care, probation and youth justice. We pride ourselves on finding good job matches, which is probably why over 6/10 of interviews arranged by Backstop in 2010 have turned into placements.
Here at Backstop we strongly believe in your career development. We offer a Professional Development Scheme to all our active locums as well as funding for the Professional Certificate in Effective Practice (PCEP - through the Open University) which is a valuable certificate to gain if you want to further your career in Youth Justice. Please speak to your Recruitment Consultant if you are interested.
Our specialist knowledge is recognised with the social work and criminal justice fields by recruiting managers and organisations, so we are often the first agency contacted when a vacancy occurs.
Because we fully understand the market where you operate we are well placed to negotiate the highest rates of pay for you.
Once placed, we will maintain regular contact and provide support and advice. Once your placement is coming to an end we will work with you to secure your next placement. We have locums who have happily worked with us for a number of years this way.
