Kieran Porter


  • Office Newcastle
  • Team Leadership

As one of the Directors of Standby Healthcare, Kieran brings a wealth of recruitment and Social Care recruitment knowledge to the business. Having learnt his social care recruitment trade at one of the leaders in the sector, Kieran made the move to the Northeast with his partner Alice to forge his future here and continue life as a social care recruiter. He joined the business back in 2018 actually only ever being in the Northeast twice previous and so the change came thick and fast. Working in partnership with Alex, they quickly set about creating business change to grow Standby to where it is today.

With a focus on business growth and infrastructure continuity, Kieran takes the lead on all aspects recruitment, operations and business development with a view to make sure that every client, consultant and candidate is receiving a first class service. Using his extensive sector knowledge, he is able to present Standby to the market the way that means we onboard the clients which align with our values but also with consultants whom we know are the best fit to provide support across the board. Working in partnership with our services, clients know that when the support is needed, they have someone to turn to with access to the people in the business who make the decisions and won't be passed off. If you need to discuss commercial terms, how we can support your business with temporary solution, Kieran is best placed to discuss how we can be on Standby for you.
