Are you looking for a new nursing job? Perhaps you’re considering working as a locum nurse through an agency, but aren’t sure what the benefits are? Take a look at our top four reasons to choose locum nursing:

Flexibility:

As a locum nurse, you can decide exactly when you want to work and are able to pick and choose days to suit you. All you have to do is let us know the days you are available to work and we’ll send you shifts best suited to your availability.

Work-life balance:

Having control of your work-life balance can ensure you provide your best level of care, without feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Choosing the hours you work means you can combine working with other responsibilities, such as spending time with family and friends.

Knowledge & Opportunities:

Rather than working in one hospital, locum shifts allow you to work in different hospitals where you are able to learn new things, widen your experience, meet new people and add some variety into your working week. It’s also a great way to discover hospitals you don’t like, so we are able to send you to hospitals you do.

Better rates of pay:

Compared to bank shifts or substantive posts, working through a locum agency can offer you increased rates of pay. Whether you chose to become Pay As You Earn (PAYE), Umbrella or Limited company we’ll support you every step of the way – find out which option is best for you here.
