The social work experts

Sanctuary Executive is a specialist recruitment agency for those at the top-end of
social care.

As a specialist division of Sanctuary Personnel, the largest independent provider of social workers in the UK, we understand the complex, challenging and unforgiving nature of the work. We draw on a comprehensive network to locate the very strongest candidates with a proven record of success and a history of career stability in the executive
level market.

Sanctuary Executive is supported by the knowledge of Directors of Service and Senior Practitioners who work directly for Sanctuary’s social work delivery arm, Skylakes. From this, we are not only able to identify the best leaders in the market but, in many cases, have worked in partnership with them. 

Sanctuary’s relationship with the elite pool of professionals, who have proved themselves at executive level, places us in a unique position to match any permanent or interim vacancy with the ideal candidate. 

We pride ourselves on a bespoke consultancy service that has successfully filled roles at Service Manager, Head of Service, Assistant Director, Director of Adult Social Services, Director of Children’s Services and Deputy Chief Executive levels across the UK. This is supported by our market-leading compliance and safeguarding processes, resulting in fast-response times to our clients’ demanding and critical placement needs. 

As our existing clients will testify, working with Sanctuary assures rapid placement of executives who are fully equipped to succeed in their task and to enhance your organisation’s reputation.
