App launched to hire temporary staff at the click of a button

By Bethany Hemsley

A government-backed social care recruitment App launches this week allowing care homes to hire staff without using an agency.

The OUTT App, which has received a £50 million government investment towards its development, allows providers to post a job advert and then choose from a list of care assistants and support workers, filtered by factors such as locality and experience.

After registering, employees are interviewed online and OUTT carries out all the required background checks. Staff are given ID badges to wear when working.

Staff are not categorised as self-employed and the OUTT team is responsible for PAYE and other tax responsibilities.

A spokesman for OUTT says: “It is much more transparent than using an agency. Care homes can check for themselves details about potential employees, rather than just take an agency’s word for it. They can do this immediately and in their own time.”
