Unrivalled benefits

Whether you’re a nurse, midwife or healthcare assistant, we offer unrivalled benefits. Here’s what sets us apart from other agencies.

What makes us different

High pay rates and bonuses

Our unmatched rates start from £32.50/€36.50 per hour for nurses and midwives, and £18.50/€24 per hour for healthcare assistants.

We also offer discretional bonuses for high-demand shifts, on top of hourly rates.

Regular and reliable pay

We pay all our nurses via PAYE up to 5 times a week.

That means you get paid quickly with no unexpected taxes.

We pay NMC/NMBI fees

We reimburse almost 1,000 NMC and NMBI fees each year.

We’ll pay your fees if you work at least 18 shifts in a year for us.

Terms & conditions

We pay travel expenses

We’re the only agency that pays your travel expenses in full.

We pay 25p/25c per mile, up to 200 miles/km.

Work as much as you want

Unlike other agencies, we don’t set how many shifts you need to work.

You have complete control of your schedule.
