Our Story....

Roostr is a connection platform founded by care industry experts to provide a simple and cost effective alternative to traditional temporary staffing agencies. 

Following years of frustration running care homes and having to call in agency staff the idea for Roostr was conceived.  A few care industry folk got our heads together and decided that in the day of modern technology there must be a more efficient way of providing temporary staff to the care sector. A way to use technology to cut out the middle man, give the nurses and carers a better rate and make it less costly for care homes to engage temporary staff.  And so Roostr was born.

Our motive is to be able to offer the industry’s most competitive pricing for shift cover to employers, whilst ensuring the nurses and carers are handsomely rewarded for their hard work. 

So, what makes Roostr special? We don’t claim to be the biggest provider in this growing marketplace of connecting self employed professionals with employers. What we do claim though, is that we offer the personal touch.  We will support you every step of the way through your registration process, helping nurses and carers become self employed if that is needed.  We will take time to get to understand your requirements and do our best to connect you with the best match for you.

Our objective is to be the ‘go to’ company for nurses and carers wanting flexible, well paid temporary work. We aspire to be the first port of call for care industry employers in need of quality cover for vacant shifts.  We don’t expect exclusivity, in fact we welcome professionals and employers alike using us in conjunction with your other agency arrangements.  We like to think that nurses and carers already doing agency work will sign up with Roostr as well, after all, the more variety and options professionals are given, the more satisfied and empowered they feel, right? Employers are better connected and everyone has more money in their pockets.

Why are we called Roostr? Contrary to a recent suggestion, no, we weren’t a chicken fast food outlet in a previous life.  In a moment of questionable inspiration, we came up with the tagline….

"Let Roostr fill your roster"

……..and the name has stuck!

We believe that Roostr has the winning formula.

  • We have a super easy to use software platform, designed by us, bespoke to Roostr.
  • We believe that our pricing is impossible to beat, but if you think you’ve found better we welcome the challenge.
  • We are By Your Side, every step of the way offering a truly bespoke service when you need it.
  • We reward outstanding performance which backs up our claim that we only connect the BEST nurses and carers.
