Bridging the gap in healthcare employment

At Next Generation, we’ve been trusted by care providers in and around Plymouth to supply quality temporary health care staff for over two decades. We expect the highest standards from our partners –because the people in your care deserve to get the service they need.

Whether you’re looking for health care assistants, nurses, support workers or nursery nurses, we’re here to supply the staff your service needs. It’s the ideal ad hoc solution to address unexpected staffing issues. But it can also be a ‘temp to perm’ arrangement – where a positive working relationship develops and you’d like a worker to join your service for the longer term.

The right kind of people

We don’t compromise when it comes to healthcare. So we only take on partners who share our values and our drive – people who are compassionate, competent and committed to quality care. That’s why we are rigorous in our recruitment process and ensure that staff have at least six months’ experience. And why we invest in DBS certification and CQC-standard training.

We also believe it’s right to treat staff well. Zero-hours contracts don’t mean zero responsibility. We pay staff properly and provide perks and support. That creates a happy, trusting and loyal workforce, which is good for everyone. So you can be assured that our Flexible Partners meet our high standards – and yours.

Our Flexible Partner service allows care providers to meet staffing demands in a targeted way, while helping care staff fit their work around their lifestyle. It’s a win-win – and importantly, it means delivering care to those who need it.

I’m glad Next Generation is my employer. And I’m always happy, since being with the Big Picture Care Group family. 
As a member of Next Generation care team for 18 years I have always found them very competent, welcoming and friendly and without a doubt one of the most professional companies around. They have great communication with clients and staff, and are supportive, take great pride in their quality of care, trustworthiness in their teams, and long may this great attribute long continue.
Working for Next Generation is a pleasure; they are very helpful and will help you if an emergency comes up as some times it does. It’s a delightful company to work for and would advise anyone to looking for a care job to try. We have contacted hours as not many agencies offer this.
We have used Next Generation for many years and have always found them to be very reliable. The support workers that they have provided have proven to be very good, caring, supportive and have worked well alongside the existing teams. The office staff are always friendly and upfront with what they can help with and always give you a call back as promised.
I personally don't like using agency workers in place of our regular staff. I feel that it affects continuity of care and generally has an adverse effect on staff morale. However, Next Generation strive to offer a small, regular amount of staff who are familiar with the house and, more importantly, who our service users are happy and familiar with. I recognise that hiring agency staff is not an ideal situation, but Next Generation make such an effort to make the situation as professionally seamless and friendly, that I would recommend their service to any manager in need.
