How long has Agila been in business?

Agila launched its business in 2008 under the name Vårdassistans and changed the name to Agila in 2016. The aim of the business has been the same from the outset, healthcare staffing and since 2015 we also work with social worker staffing.

Why did you change your name from Vårdassistans to Agila?

One of the reasons why we changed our name was to enable us to expand into other areas of operation not associated with healthcare, such as social worker staffing. Besides, the name Agila is easier to pronounce and is associated with words like flexible, adaptable and responsive, which are in line with our values.

Can you provide references?

Absolutely! Speaking with a colleague in the business who can explain what it is like to hire social workers is an ideal way to understand the industry and how we work.
