Excellent Company to work for

I found that Sanctuary personnel are excellent in all area’s. The initial phone call to register is simple and not taxing. You transferred to a specific person who you deal with continuously. If you have any salary problems you can talk directly to the Salary dept and they sort it out quickly. I can recommend Sanctuary Personnel highly, they ensure that you have access to the necessary training, and keep you appraised of anything you may need.


Excellent communication, One to One service, clear and concise information on necessary training etc


No cons

Good experience as Locum Social Worker

I contacted numerous agencies and chose Sanctuary as they was the most reliable. Registering with them was quick and straight forward. They send somebody out to check your documents which was a big help. They got me work quickly and so far my experience has been a positive one. My consultant has been really good. Weekly pay is a big bonus,


Weekly pay, consultant is good, easy to get set up.

Great company to work for

I've worked with Sanctuary for around 5 months and have thoroughly enjoyed it. You have your own agent and mine has been absolutely lovely- you really feel known to the company. Pay is weekly which is great. Only downside is lack of job security or advancement- but thats the whole point of being a locum!


Feel known personally. Weekly pay at a good rate.


Lack of advancement (not Sanctuary's fault though!)
