We find you the staff you need


Our mission is to provide a clear and transparent recruitment service to the social care, nursing and education sectors. Attracting and recruiting the right quality staff in today's markets is a complex and time-consuming process. The demand for health, social care and education staff is at an all-time high and is only set to increase over the coming years.

In order to best support and understand our clients, all of our teams consist of professionals that have worked within the sectors that they supply. We employ Nurses, Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Registered Managers and Support Workers who have worked within and truly understand what is required for the roles you are looking to fill.

Vetro Recruitment is a member of the REC (Recruitment and employment confederation) and our nursing division is a CIW (Care Inspectorate Wales) registered service. As such, we are monitored, regulated and audited like any other care service would be and consequently, our compliance and safeguarding standards mirror those of the services we support.

Vetro is very proud to have achieved the REC gold accreditation. This proves that the processes we have in place allow us to provide our clients and schools with top quality professionals who are vetted to the highest standard. 

Whether you are looking to fill a permanent role, a short-term contract or ad-hoc hours, we can help.

  • I have been working with Alex since August 2018, during this time Alex and I have built a strong working relationship, whereby Alex contacts myself with potential candidates to work in our children’s residential home and I keep Alex up to date with current vacancies. Alex and I both gave each other clear guidelines of our terms and conditions at the start of our working relationship, which has allowed us to work transparently with the same objectives. Alex has a good understanding of the type of candidates we are looking for, as opposed to some agencies I have worked with who send along candidates with limited information regarding the roles we have, this is very frustrating for the candidate, our boys and staff taking time out to interview. I find Alex very approachable, efficient, fair and reasonable. I have given Alex some feedback about one candidate in particular who chose not to disclose some information before interview, Alex totally understood where I was coming from and thanked me for giving the feedback, this has assured me that if anything like this happened again I could feel confident to speak to Alex. We have had several candidates via Vetro Recruitment, who are still with us and doing very well. When asked at interview if the agency have shared information regarding the role they apply for, the type of home we are running and an overview of our company objectives, they have all confirmed they have, which is reassuring for any employer to know that agents are sending suitable candidates, who they genuinely feel have the potential to be a good match. I find Alex patient, if I say I will get back to her, I will, therefore I am not inundated with calls and emails, likewise if there is a delay in my response Alex will be sure to give me a gentle nudge. I hope to continue working with Alex in the future and will be sure to inform her of any vacancies we have. Thanks for your support and professionalism Alex!

  • Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and support over the past couple of months. I’ve obviously worked with a huge array of agencies and recruitment consultant over the years and wanted to express what an absolute pleasure it has been working with you.  You have sought to understand our requirements, our processes and our business which has been evident in the quality of candidates you have forwarded for interview.  The candidates have been well informed, briefed and clear on the requirements so I can only thank you for going the extra mile and being a true professional. I’d like to wish you every success in the future and will recommend you personally to prospective candidates and employers. Thanks again it’s been a pleasure.

    Victoria - HR Manager

  • We have had great success recruiting through Vetro. They have consistently provided excellent candidates for our Homecare agency, working to our specific criteria across multiple locations. Trustworthy and reliable service and great communication. Would highly recommend to other care providers and will continue to use their services in future.

    Adam - Home Care Registered Manager

  • Vetro picked up a request from my company to source candidates at fairly short notice. They made the effort to really understand the type of candidate and skillsets we were looking for and all of the resulting candidates they forwarded were excellent. The support they provided through the entire process was great and we were more than happy to offer the open position to a candidate they sourced. We look forward to working closely with Vetro going forward for any recruitment needs that come up in the future.

    Micheal - Data Services Team Leader

  • We have had great success recruiting through Vetro. They have consistently provided excellent candidates for our Homecare agency, working to our specific criteria across multiple locations. Trustworthy and reliable service and great communication. Would highly recommend to other care providers and will continue to use their services in future.

    Adam - Home Care Agency Owner

  • As a HR Professional, I am hounded by recruitment companies on a daily basis, usually not knowing anything about who we are or what we do. It can feel like an impersonal exercise to get an email address for their records, or contact names. That's never been the case with Menna, she is my consultant of choice whatever the discipline of the role. Menna listens, asks pertinent questions and takes time to understand the position in depth. A pleasure to work with!

    Mel - Head of HR

  • I’ve been working with Lyndsay Burder and Vetro for the past 4 years and have found the service they provide to me is superb, I wouldn’t want to use another recruitment agency as they are so effective and efficient. Lyndsay keeps me updated throughout my recruitment requirements for new staff and ensures that she sends me over suitable applicants to interview and always follows up with keeping me and the applicant informed of progress. Thank you Lyndsay and Vetro, for all your support.

    Emma - Head of Services for Sussex

  • My main contact is Shawni she is very helpful. She gets to know the school and its needs and goes out of her way to find someone suitable, even standing in herself when possible.

    Kay - School Office Manager

  • We have been working with Tony for a while now and find him very supportive and person-centred around what our Home requires. He acts promptly on any issues and finds solutions for our problems. He is a great asset to the Company he works for. He is very efficient and dedicated to his job.

    Andrea - Nursing Home Manager

  • I would recommend Vetro Recruitment because they have been fantastic in every way. Nikki and Faye respond immediately when I have needed staff and promptly and professionally when I have needed to recruit staff under some tricky and urgent situations. Nikki and Faye are always friendly and patient when times have been very busy. Through Nikki and Faye I have some really lovely employee's that meet the needs of the people we are supporting in a service I manage.

    Jo - Locality Manager - Adults Learning Disabilities

  • Hi Nikki, Thank you very much for all of the staff you have provided to us. You have always endeavoured to provide the cover that we require and have always given me plenty of notice if you are unable to so I am able to make alternative arrangements. We are more than happy with the service you have provided to date and look forward to a continued relationship. Thank you once again.

    Sally - Home Manager

  • The servicer that is received from both Nikki and the company is very good. Nikki will if possible cover the shifts quickly and if unable to get cover will inform me. The agency workers that have worked within the services that I have managed are very professional and once shown the routine will support the people we support.

    Karen - Locality Manager

  • This is a testimony on my experience of working with Vetro recruitment over the last year Vetro has always delivered on what they say they will do. Examples of this have been; Covering shifts when they say they will, Advertising and recruiting staff, Providing the relevant training to relief staff, Being open and honest when they have been unable to cover shifts, Providing excellent staff at short notice, Keeping in contact, Good communication Vetro has provided us recently with two excellent candidates on a temp to permanent basis. We discussed our needs and I feel they fully met our expectations I would highly recommend using Vetro. 

    Sheila - Locality Manager

  • A completely professional recruitment company from start to finish. In particular, Aidan has a personable nature that is most supportive of candidates.

    Sarah - Office Manager

  • The team in Liverpool are all extremely friendly and polite and will go the extra mile to help anyone who needs it. Aidan is very down to earth and very approachable. One of the best recruitment agency's out there.

    Hannah - Administrator

  • I have worked with Aidan on many placements and he has found the right candidate with the right experience. They have been ready to start immediately and there have been no compliance issues.  The service he has provided has been very honest and professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to other services when looking for candidates. He's an all round top bloke!

    Jack - Operations Manager - Home Care Provider

  • We can always rely on Shawni at Vetro recruitment to ensure all our staffing requirements are met. Shawni is very efficient and always get back to us straight away. We would highly recommend Shawni and the Vetro Recruitment team to other schools who are wishing to recruit the best teaching staff.  

    Rebecca - School Administrator

  • Ashley is very polite and always professional. He goes over and above to finds the correct candidate for both my provisions, as you can imagine this is very time-consuming for him but never has he complained. He will always send over candidate profiles before the staff start with both provisions and gives them an in-depth handover before arriving so they know what to expect. His proactiveness, and ability to communicate effectively is very much appreciated and essential. I’d say a massive asset to your team at Vetro!

    Lee - Home Manager

  • My name is Janet and I am a Director of the care company. We have engaged the services of Vetro Care on many occasions when requiring agency staff to cover our service. Our initial meetings have been with Ashley Leek who met with us to discuss our company and what our needs both present and future would be. Ashley was a warm young man who listened carefully to the needs of our service, he gave assurance he believed he would be able to meet our requirements for agency staff who would be able to work with our young people. This has been very successful and whenever we have approached Vetro Care Ashley Leek is our main point of contact. Ashley has also been available for us to call outside of office hours and he is always pleasant and amenable. We are currently undergoing changes within our company which has itself brought complex issues.  Again Ashley has been available to us and has had several face to face meetings with us enable both himself and the Vetro Care Agency to understand our services and the changes which are currently being implemented. This has led to us being confident when we are provided with workers from Vetro they are the right workers to complete the required roles. Ashley presents as very professional during our meetings and we are assured he has a clear understanding of our business and the complex issues that arise when working with young people. We will continue to work with Vetro and use Ashley as our main point of contact due to the confidence we have in his ability and the professional manner in which he responds to our requests for service. If you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me Yours Sincerely Janet 

    Janet - Director

  • We set up the business two years ago and dealt with one or two agencies before being introduced to Vetro by a staff member. Ash came down to meet us and made it a very personal experience that we have not experienced with other agencies.  When we ring to request staff, Ash works tirelessly to get things sorted and keeps me informed of developments. I always feel confident he will deliver on my sometimes outrageous staffing demands as he always has previously. In all fairness as we grow, I will consider trying to steal him from you for our own recruitment department as I believe he's that much of an asset.

    Simon - Manager

  • "Hi Ashley, since Emma started doing agency work here, I think it is fair to say that she hit the ground running from day one. She is a very enthusiastic person who shows 100% commitment throughout her shifts. She will arrive early for her shift and will get involved in any activity or task that she is presented with. The way she works with the residents is exactly what we expect and she is always child centred in what she does. There had been situations where our residents have become in a heightened state, however, Emma will always be there to assist and help defuse the situation. She is one of the best agency workers that we have and I think all the team leaders as well the care home manager agree when I say she has fitted in since day one. She is a credit to yourself, and her own standards and ethos are second to none"

    Lance - Team Leader

  • "Vetro Recruitment has been the cornerstone for my recruitment over the past year, the team and in particular, Kerry, have been outstanding in supporting me to find the best candidates for the roles I needed to fill. Kerry understands the needs of the roles I am recruiting for and finds the best candidates for that position, Kerry will endeavour to follow up with emails and calls to see how they are getting on, arrange for meetings and interviews as well as catch up communications to see if we have any upcoming vacancies.  The whole team in Caerphilly have been supportive and there is a real sense of pride about their recruitment and support they provide which is evident as soon as you start working with them. I have found Vetro to be a very professional company to work alongside and they will continue to be the first point of call for my homes recruitment."

    Will - Children’s home Manager

  • "We have recently engaged the services of Vetro due to growth plans within the organisation. Following an initial conversation with Alun and a subsequent meeting with both Alun and Alastair, we signed up for Vetro to support us with the recruitment of both our Residential Workers and Supervising Social Workers.  I have found both Alun and Alastair to have a refreshing professional approaching whilst demonstrating innovative approaches to recruitment. They are clearly incredibly knowledgeable about the social care sector. In the short time of working with them, they have been able to supply both temporary and permanent staff that match the complex skill set that this sector demands. I look forward to a successful working partnership with Vetro and would not hesitate to recommend them as a recruitment agency."

    Claire - HR Manager

  • "We have worked with Vetro for the last six months to help us fill vacancies in a geographical area which has been difficult to recruit for in the past. Other more traditional methods failed to produce the calibre of candidates we required. Since working with Vetro the number of successful candidates has significantly increased. Alun and Josie have worked very closely with us to familiarise themselves with our requirements and to fully understand the roles, resulting in a better match of candidates. By visiting our residential homes Josie and Alun saw, first-hand, the skills required to support the individuals who live there. Vetro also helped us to run our first ever assessment day by finding us good quality candidates and offering advice on the structure of the day. The day was successful and job offers were made."

    Kelly - Recruitment Manager

  • "I have found Abi a great consultant to work with.  As schools with last-minute sickness issues, it can be a stressful job for Abi but she always answers the phone with a bright demeanour and is always happy to help.  Always professional and tries her best to find what we need."

    Steve - Deputy Head - EBD School

  • "Abi is our consultant at Vetro Education.  She has provided us with office items that display Vetro’s contact details, her candidates bring their DBS’ with them and she has given her contact details so she can be contacted out of school hours.  These strategies have been introduced by Abi to enable us to contact Vetro and book supply (even at short notice) with ease and efficiency.Abi has taken the time to visit our school, she is friendly, efficient and helpful.  She is professional and approachable and always gives clear information about candidates and their availability.  It is always a pleasure to contact Abi"

    Lisa - Primary School Clerk

  • "I have recently worked with Kerry from Vetro in recruiting for a managerial position, Kerry really got to grips with the type of candidate we were looking for and provided a good calibre of candidates, to which we were able to appoint for the position.Kerry gave great customer service throughout the process and I would certainly recommend her to others as being a proactive and reliable recruiter."​

    Steve - Learning Disabilities Service Manager

  • "Alastair was my point of contact from start to finish when I asked him to help me to recruit a suitable Care manager for my new start up agency. He was always  very  professional; knowledgeable and understood the importance of finding that right person to fulfil this responsible position. ​ I am very pleased with the outcome and have appointed a great member of staff. I promise you: you will not be disappointed with the service you will receive if you appoint Vetro for your recruitment needs."

    Sharon - Director

  • "Hi Alun, I have just been chatting with Steph and she was saying how professional, thorough and helpful you were, and how good you were at keeping us updated on progress. We are confident that the candidate is getting an equally professional perception of Vetro which obviously reflects on their understanding of our services. So, I just wanted to say a big *THANK YOU* for being such a great recruitment partner!  Best wishes, Ali"

    Ali - HR Manager

  • "Hi Alun,   I’d just like to share some candidate feedback received this morning about Lauren which was again really positive.   Our candidate said how very informative, helpful and friendly she found Lauren and it was a really good experience she had received in her dealings with Vetro.  This is actually not the first time I have heard this from our candidates in terms of positive feedback about Lauren so thought it worthy of sharing.   Naturally we are also very delighted with the support and service Lauren provides us!"

    Simon - Recruitment Manager

  • "Extremely happy with the service Ross Harries from Vetro Education provides for me at St Martins High. Very efficient and quick to sort any cover that I require and always sends quality staff to maintain our standards here"

    Gabrielle - Cover Manager

  • ‘Hi Cerys You will probably already guess that my feedback will always be positive comments! I thoroughly enjoy working alongside you and the candidates that we receive through are mostly fantastic!   Even through all the conversations at our group interview days with the candidates, they all sing your praises very well! They are always very complimentary about how easy you are to talk to and answer any questions they may have. You inform them very well of all the ins and outs of our organisation so that when they arrive for the recruitment day we are only just talking about it in more depth.   You are always working so hard and are always willing to help me where you can (despite me being a pain sometimes). I am very grateful for all the support you give me!   I look forward to continuing to work alongside you!’

    Alice - Senior HR Administrator

  • "Ash has been providing staff for us for some time. Vetro is the second agency we used and we have been more than satisfied with the service Ash has provided us resulting in Vetro being are the main port of call to cover our needs.  Ashley's friendly and professional work ethic means we have built up a solid relationship where we can rely on Ashley to fill our requirements without hassle to ourselves. We have been approached by several agencies since beginning working with Vetro and I can safely say that the reason I continue to use yourselves is due to the quality of service Ashley provides us as he makes us feel like his primary objective whenever we contact him."

    Stuart - Line Manager

  • "We are very happy with Vetro and the service we have received.  From the start, Ross was very helpful and informative about the company and the service they offered.  When the time came to ask for supply staff in our nursery Ross certainly delivered.  We received excellent staff who were able to cover at short notice and we even had continuity of receiving the same people.  ​The ease of ringing or texting from home has made our lives much easier and we are confident with the service provided.  I am more than happy to recommend Vetro to any other nurseries looking for quality supply staff."

    Laura - Managing Director​

  • "Vetro- Emma and Kerry have been a massive help and support with helping us find candidates for our current vacancies. They are always very friendly, approachable, and I feel speak passionately to possible candidates about the wonderful place that I work. I know I can trust them to find the right people for our jobs. ​ I would defiantly recommend them to other companies- and we are happy to continue using them to help us."

    Alice - Residential School Administrator

  • ‘From our pool of agency, Vetro is our number one agency to go to due to the high level of service they provide. My contact Ashely Leek is extremely professional, efficient and friendly.  He provides us with a service we can rely on, is quick to respond to our needs for staff at sometimes very short notice.  We always receive very positive feed back from our staff on how well Vetro staff work and fit into our services. We look forward to continuing our good working relationship with Vetro in the future."

    Ceri - Senior HR Administrator

  • "Just a short note to thank you very much for all your hard work and dedication in finding us our ideal RGN candidate.   As a company, we will utilise your services for all our recruitment needs and we will most definitely recommend you to colleagues. Thanks again, much appreciated."

    Jane - Nursing Home Manager

  • "Please accept this as our testimonial for Abi Harris at Vetro Recruitment. Abi is our link at Vetro Education for supply. We are very pleased that she has been able to meet our needs as and when requested, even when our requests have been very specific, particularly with SEN requirements. She is both cheerful and professional and not at all 'pushy' as I have found with other agencies. She has also been very honest if she doesn't think our needs will be met, which is rare, again unlike other agencies we have used who just send someone suitable or not!  We hope to continue this relationship into the future. Many Thanks, Natalee"
