No work

Unfortunately there is no work unless I want to travel over 80 miles at my cost though sometimes they try and make the rate better because of the travellingI cover a huge area of three counties and have to chase work every single week, yet I only have two days work this week and only 3 days work last week and I cant afford to live on these pitiful hours so I have to leave.

Not too bad to work for when work is available

Not too bad to work for when work is available. Sometimes tried to push me to go to places I didn't like to work. But were supportive when needed. At times cancelled my shifts without telling me.

Pros

Work as and when

Cons

Low pay

Never out of work. Shifts when I required them. Very attentive line manager. Fabulous Agency

One of the best agencies I have ever worked for. Shifts when I need them and at the same care homes. Pay is higher than average and weekly to. Paid holiday and excellent pay on Bank Holidays. Management very helpful and pleasant and attentive.

Pros

Same care homes if required

Cons

Long shifts. Most are 12 hours. 1 hour deducted for a break whether you take it or not

Small friendly agency

It's a small very friendly company by and large very good for providing the type of work you want. Pay is low but commensurate with the sector standard

Great agency to work for

Love working for the agency. Very helpful managers when you need help. Very professional and enough hours, the pay is decent so can't complain. The only downside is when you don't gt enough shifts but that happens rarely.

Excellent company to work for

If you want flexibility, choice and lots of work. This is the company to work for. As a nurse you can choose your area of work. Do as little or as much as you wish to work. Excellent salary and weekly pay. The staff look after you and give you the choice to work in whatever field you want. I have worked for them for two years and I would go nowhere else. Excellent in house training all free.

Better places to work for...

don't look after there dedicated staff set new staff on and they end up with the shifts and the ones who have been with them a while or for years loose out their Don't get supervisions or extra training in other subjects just mandatory which you don't get paid for when its your day off, pay not so good for some places you work at it's a set wage weather it be a a nice place to go or somewere that is challenging no extra money for weekends.good and bad points forLCF

Lowest rate of agency pay

Mostly based in nursing homes. Do not pay any fuel allowences. Plenty of work..if you dont mind being exploited for just above minium wage. Office is diaorganised & blame you for their errors. No support when disclosing some awful positions you will be put in.

Pros

Plenty of work

Cons

None
