Although everyone can find satisfaction from doing their job in role they enjoy, it is easy to see why Health Care Assistants gain a huge amount of job satisfaction from providing support and care to a variety of different people in need.

So considering how fulfilling a role it can be, why should you consider working for an agency?


The role suits a number of different lifestyles and personal situations. For example many student nurses work for Swanstaff as HCA’s whilst completing their training as the shifts can fit around University and other commitments. It also provides them with experience of working the healthcare sector for a number of different care providers.


Swanstaff work with a variety of different care providers and establishments, both NHS and Private. This gives you the opportunity to gain experience in various locations. One day you could be doing work in a residential care home and another day be on a ward of your local hospital. This can either help you to become more accomplished and able to thrive in any location you choose to work in or can help you decide on a specific area you would like to specialise in.


Here at Swanstaff we love to reward hard work where possible in a number of ways. If you are chosen to be an Ambassador for us you will gain access to cash bonuses and our Perk Box system which can get you money off dining out, holidays, shopping and leisure activities. We also run a temp of the month scheme which allows our branches to choose a temp they work with that has done particularly well that month and reward them with a certificate and prize.

Weekly Pay 

Swanstaff pay all of our temporary staff on a weekly basis which removes the worry of waiting to pay bills at the end of the month or getting your paycheck to stretch. If you need more one week you can take extra shifts or alternatively refer people to work for Swanstaff and gain a bonus for it in the future if that person signs up and works a certain number of hours for Swanstaff.


We are passionate about helping our staff continue their professional development where possible. We provide a number of different training courses which you can find more our about here.
