Aiming to address the UK staffing shortage in social care, Outt provides a tech-based marketplace helping employers find social care professionals. With a ready to launch product - beta version has 1469 registered users - they are raising to ignite their 'go-to market' strategy in a >£6.2b market.
Founded in late 2020 in direct response to rising staff shortages in social care since Brexit and Covid, Outt is a tech-based social care jobs platform, providing ready to work care professionals for temp & perm vacancies.
According to IBIS World the staff agency market is highly fragmented. We aim to remove traditional agencies by attracting candidates with a tech-led, flexible solution and operating a competitive fee-based cost model for employers.
Outt offers candidates work flexibility, plus a 24-hour support service. We are campaigners for fair pay and key worker rights, which struck a chord, attracting over 700 registrations from excited care professionals during test campaigns.
With an estimated 490k additional care workers required by 2035, care professionals are in short supply, demanding work flexibility. Employers are searching for new staff solutions which Outt aims to provide.
