Amicus Recruit merges with SocialWork 2000

Social work recruitment companies Amicus Recruit and SocialWork 2000 have joined forces in a merger deal that creates a combined company with a turnover in excess of 12m.

The two companies will continue to operate as separate brands within their established markets, but are expected to benefit from the sharing of expertise within a new group structure under the banner of 3d Recruit Ltd.

Commenting on the merger, James Brown, Managing Director said:

"We are delighted to merge with a company that shares our values and commitment to the highest possible standards in social worker recruitment. We both have a proven track record of safe quality recruitment going back over 10 years. Together we feel that we can offer an even better service to the social care sector as it faces the challenges of the next decade. Our locums will also benefit from an increase in the range of work and training opportunities that we can offer them over a larger geographical area."

Amicus founder Ben Arnold will take on the role of Recruitment Director to head up the Temporary and Permanent Recruitment operations of the combined group. The rest of the company management structure will remain the same and all teams will continue to operate from their existing UK offices in Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and East Sussex as well as their Australian office in Melbourne.
