Read our reviews from clients and candidates who have used Halcyon Health and Social Care.

Melissa Langridge (candidate)

I’ve been working with Halcyon for 6 weeks now and have found them understanding, flexible and a pleasure to work for. They have a great range of shifts which you can book in easily via their app, they pay on time every week, and are always available if you need support. I have yet to have a negative experience with them and look forward to continuing to work with them. I work for them as overtime alongside my main job and they have been incredibly understanding regarding my availability and have never pressured me to pick up more shifts than I ask for.

Tanya Humphries (client)

Over the last 15 years I have worked with several agencies for my recruitment needs and can honestly say that Halcyon has provided me with the best service of them all. Rhys has demonstrated not only an exceptional level of professionalism, but has also taken the time to understand what I want as a client, and has provided me with only the highest quality of candidate’s. I can not recommend them enough.

Colin Beard (client)

Halcyon have played an integral role in the establishment of our new care business. I have worked with James and his team on a number of projects and always found them to be extremely efficient, creative and professional.
Halcyon are definitely one step ahead of the game and our go to provider of high quality staff, both on a temporary and permanent basis.
Recruitment in the care sector can be a bit of a rollercoaster, and Halcyon have been an incredible asset to us. I would highly recommend!

Stephanie Yoko Higashi (candidate)

I have worked with and for Halcyon for a month now and they have been absolutely accomodating! They give you shifts that suits your availability, and I am very thankful for that as I am a single mum. It is quite difficult to find a job during school hours, but they made it happen. I am grateful for all their efforts in giving me shifts that suits around my availability.

Nicci Manning (candidate)

I have known James and Tina for a couple of years, through a different agency, and have always been impressed with their supportive and ‘can do’ attitudes. James has gone out of his way to understand and accommodate me with work which is why I was happy to move to Halycon around 3 weeks ago. I am always paid on time and the pay is definitely fair.. Halycon keep in touch regularly with me to ensure that I am happy and that my placements are going well. I honestly couldn’t ask for anything more.

Megan Davies (candidate)

Personally I have enjoyed working for Halcyon, being my first experience in an agency and in different settings of care I feel I have been well informed of jobs beforehand, I have had many opportunities to seek advice and support and often feel appreciated for my work. Thank you Halycon for making particularly difficult days a little easier.

Gavin Tippins (client)

The team at Halcyon are incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and committed team. I have worked with the team for a long time and they have supported with providing us with quality temporary and permanent staff.

Imani Khalifa (candidate)

I have nothing negative to say about Halcyon agency or any member of staff. The application process was so quick and easy. I haven’t had any issues or concerns and I have been with them for 4 months now. I moved from Worcester and Tina still managed to find me work in Swindon. Also, I get paid the right amount every Friday.

S Valerie (client/candidate)

I have been both a candidate and client of Halcyon and have been really happy with the service. Really professional team and will definitely use them again.

Michelle G (client)

Very professional at all times, excellent company all round with 5 star communication. Can not fault at all. And would definitely recommend to any care company that require staff. Very reliable and respond back to you in a good time frame, not like other agencies that don’t respond for days if at all. Very polite team that understand the needs of the companies they work with.

Sylwia Latas (candidate)

Always had really consistent work from Halcyon, all the consultants are lovely and have always listened to the kind of setting I enjoy working with. Typically found they pay better than most, but work with them because of the service they provide as well.

Elsa Apperley (candidate)

I’ve worked for this company for 2 months and everyday I enjoy coming into work the staff out friendly and polite. Every day is so different to the next and when I have an issue or something has gone wrong the guys at Halcyon are always there on hand to help me.

Jim Weir (candidate)

I have worked for Halcyon for two months and in that time I have found them to be thoroughly professional in finding me work, and in particular work with the client group that I am qualified and most experienced in. The Halcyon app is really good for keeping up to date with job opportunities and any queries or questions I have had have been answered promptly and fairly. I would not hesitate in recommending this agency for prospective carers and look forward to working with them into the future.

Konstantin Petrov (client)

Halcyon Health & Social Care have consistently provided us with excellent and professional service at all times. Pleasure to work with and always able to count on the Halcyon team!

Ravi (MD, St Benedict's Care, Residential Children's Services)

I first came across Halcyon in 2021 and explained that as a new provider in this sector, I am seeking to establish extremely high standards which naturally will stem from the quality of the Staff. Both James and Rhys were extremely professional and got immediately what I was seeking. This was reflected from day 1 in the high quality of candidates being introduced.  

Fundamentally I dealt with Rhys, and very quickly I saw that I could work with him for now and the long term as he was extremely efficient, personable and knowledgeable. Prior to Halcyon, I had dealt with three other recruitment consultants and just wasn’t satisfied with the all-round service and professionalism which made me explore other options to recruit staff. However, a chance introduction to Halcyon has now hopefully established a long-term relationship where we can go to for high-level management staff as and when required for our Homes.

Sharon (Senior Human Resources Manager, Ruskin Mill College)

I would have no hesitation in recommending Halcyon Health and Social Care to any organisation that is looking for a professional recruitment partner.

Halcyon have recently supported us with the recruitment of a senior role within our organisation. Throughout the process communication with the agency was effective and responsive. They took time to understand our requirements and were able to offer effective recruitment solutions.

We look forward to continuing to work with Halcyon for any future requirements.

Shermaine (Manager, Rehability UK)

My name is Shermaine Kelly. I am the manager for the Greenways and Gloucester outreach supported living services under Rehability UK. We have been using Halcyon for over a year now and we are extremely pleased with the service they provide. Great communication and will go above and beyond to find us the right staff for the services we provide. Very reliable and professional. I would recommend them without a doubt. Pleasure working with them.
