INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO RECRUITMENT PAYS OFF
Andrew McGeorge launched Carestaff Bureau Ltd in September 2016 with support from The Recruit Venture Group, a decision he describes as “one of the best I have ever made”.
Carestaff Bureau specialises in recruiting temporary and permanent nurses and care workers across East Sussex and after spending 20 years in healthcare recruitment Andrew McGeorge is loving life at the helm of his own business.
“It is one of the best decisions I have ever made, being in control of your own business is a great feeling,” said Andrew.
“I didn’t want to get tied to a desk dealing with the back office side of the business, I wanted to be out there recruiting and thanks to The Recruit Venture Group’s joint Venture Model I have been able to do just that.

“The Recruit Venture Group gives you the time you need to make your business successful”
“I am doing the same job I was doing before but now I am doing it in my own business and it is building a future for me and my family.”
Carestaff Bureau’s story is one of success, the agency have scooped back-to-back awards at The Recruit Venture Group’s Recruitment Awards in Central London, the business has also been shortlisted for a national award at The Recruiter Magazine’s Recruiter Awards.
Andrew McGeorge believes that Carestaff’s success is partly down to their innovative approach to helping people into work, a time consuming but a rewarding project which he has been able to see to fruition thanks to The Recruit Venture Group.
He said: “We take the time to train local people for their first role in the care sector, it is a lot of work but it is incredibly rewarding; its helping to tackle the skills shortage and unemployment across the area.
“I wouldn’t have the time to be able to launch and manage the programme if it wasn’t for the Central Services team at The Recruit Venture Group who leave me free to focus on growing my business and providing the best service to our clients and candidates.
“The Recruit Venture Group gives you the time you need to make your business successful it is then up to you to make the most of it.
“If you are a good recruiter and can bill and grow a desk then The Recruit Venture Group give you everything you need to open and grow a business; your own business.”
