At 4Social Work we offer a Vendor Managed solution which optimises the skill's and experience within your current flexible workforce more cost effectively, while maintaining the high level standard of care you provide.
We begin by ensuring we have a thorough understanding of your needs and existing business processes. From here we can make solid recommendations for improvement and efficiency.

Transparent management information
Our tailored management information system will give you complete transparency on key data, improving management control and workforce planning. This technology can provide real-time information in a variety of formats tailored to your needs and we can integrate information from other workforce and budget systems as required. Formal management information packs, including analysis, can be regularly produced depending upon your needs.In addition to the management and budget information you would expect, we also include information relating to governance, quality and safety.
Visibility of your spend
In order to control costs it is vital to be clear in real time where you are spending your budget and our software gives you a clear view of spend whilst our transparent approach to billing means you can be sure you'll know how every penny has been used.
Increased bank capacity and fill rates = Lower agency spend
We will work with you to increase the capacity of your current bank and so reduce your agency spend. We'll do this through internal and external recruitment performed to recognised national and local best practice standards. In addition, we'll use our experience in workforce management to maximise bank fill rates and improve the effectiveness of your bank and lowering costs.
Agency supply chain management
We'll help you realise immediate cost savings through agreed strategic planning ,smart management and the standardisation of charge rates, timesheet and invoice processing.

- Accounts payable

Governance and risk management
Current market conditions dictate that all organisations are under pressure to reduce costs, we understand quality and patient outcomes remain paramount. So we underpin our approach to with a focus on governance, quality and risk management, helping you to achieve the NHSLA standards. Our management information includes regular governance updates and details such as the outcomes of incidents.
4Social Work has a competent governance and quality team, reporting directly to our the board of directors, this team ensures issues and risks are managed transparently. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs and present to you a more detailed plan of the benefits a partnership with 4Recruitment Services can offer and we are confident that we can effect in a positive way the many challenges you may currently be facing in the management of your staff bank.
As master vendor, we take absolute responsibility for your staffing requirements; typically fulfilling these through 4Rcruitment Services own specialist brands. If this isn’t possible, we turn to our 2nd tier network of alternate suppliers to ensure your needs are met. This model helps to improve contract compliance, eliminate ‘rogue’ spend, standardise pricing and rate cards, minimise employment risks, and achieve a single service level agreement, through such methods as time capture, consolidated invoicing and a vendor management system.
Our neutral vendor model differs from that of the master vendor offering in the way that vacancies are managed. Under this model, we pass all new positions to our 1st tier suppliers at the same time; meaning that our delivery arm receives no preferential treatment. Vacancies are then cascaded to our 2nd tier suppliers if the pre-agreed 1st tier lead-time period passes, or if the vacancy is flagged as business critical.
