This is a tribute to skills direct.
Who provide good quality service near perfect.
Their nurses always turn up with a smile.
Some of them have to drive many a mile.
They have to deal with the inability and disability.
With patience sympathy and professional ability.
The care can be nursing home, domiciliary or residential.
But whichever it is, — good quality skills care — is essential.
Jack Baxendale, Domiciliary
I am so glad we found your company. With very short notice you managed to provide a fantastic operative with great working attitude to help us with our show exhibition. We will definitely use your service in the future.

I have been working for Skills Direct since April 2018 and they are the best! When I first met Bex and Elle at the Christchurch office, I was greeted with the warmest of smiles and welcomed humbly, I immediately felt at home and wanted to work for these ladies. There was a lot of transparency, openness and a genuine feeling that they cared about the community that they lived in. Also, that every individual deserved to live as normal a life as possible, where possible in their own homes. When Elle took me to meet their clients, she showed me how to care for each individual. She explained to me all I needed to know about each individual to keep them calm and comfortable at all times, I was not left alone until I felt ready. Elle and Bex are always available at the end of a phone, if I experience any issues and this is very reassuring. I have already recommended Skills Direct to lots of people and look forward to many years of working with them.

I started working for Skills Direct in April 2018 and so far my experience has been amazing! I feel that the quality and accuracy of the care provided is excellent. I have been working in the care sector for over 8 years and experienced many different ways of working. I feel that the flexibility, teamwork and communication that Skills Direct offer is strong. Bex and Elle are always free to listen and I can talk to them regarding any issues. During a recent domiciliary call I needed to unfortunately call the emergency services, Elle was straight there to help and in over 8 years I have never experienced such support from a manager and it was much appreciated. Since starting in April 2018, I have undertaken shadow training, with review and support as a follow up. Skills Direct have always provided me with the correct equipment to deliver my care to the clients I look after, they also plan my runs correctly, giving me adequate time between calls. I feel very happy to be delivering care on behalf of Skills Direct and look forward to working for them for a long time!

I hope that you and the team are well? When my husband Dave was speaking to Mum at the weekend, she sounded much chirpier. She really appreciated the flowers that April, our carer picked for her from the garden and placed next to my late Father-In-Laws ashes. This was very kind and thoughtful, thank you.
Kind regards Linda

The service from Skills Direct in Shepton Mallet is second to none. Historically other agencies sent me CV’s and candidates for roles that they were not necessarily suited to, but Skills Direct show an interest in understanding the position I’m looking to fill, sort through the applicants and only send the candidates they feel are fitted to the role, saving me valuable time and effort. Skills Direct listen to my needs and communicate clearly throughout the recruitment process, so if you are looking for an effective, efficient and professional recruitment agency I would not hesitate to recommend Skills Direct, they are now my first and only choice of service provider.

Each time that myself or the night managers have spoken to Sacha at Skills Direct, she has always been very helpful, polite and professional. Her understanding of our staffing needs has been excellent. The 24hour service that is supplied has been invaluable and the response time impressive. I would have no issue in recommending Skills Direct as a service provider.
