Nurse Recruitment Agency Jobs – Everything You Need To Know

We often get questions about what a Nurse Recruitment Agency is, and how it differs from a ‘regular workplace’ role, so we decided to write an “Everything You Need To Know” guide about agencies for Nurses and Carers.

If you have any questions that aren’t answered below, feel free to ask us in the comment section at the bottom of the page, as we’re happy to answer any questions you may have.

What Is The Best Nurse Recruitment Agency To Work For?

A tough question, but one that everyone wants to know the answer to. After all, who wouldn’t want to work for a good employer?

The best type of Nurse Recruitment Agency to work for is one that offers exactly what you want.

Whether it be with us, or someone else, these are the things you should get from a Nurse Recruitment Agency:

Fantastic Pay Rates – You work hard, so you should be getting rewarded for it! If you’d like to see exactly how much you could earn with us, you can do so on our Pay Rates Page.

Job Flexibility – Everyone has different needs and schedules, which is why many decide to join a Nurse Recruitment Agency. If you’re joining an agency that wants you to work certain shifts, with little leeway, then is it really the one for you? A good work/home balance that works for you and your family is important. We understand that.

Holiday Pay – Just because you’re an agency worker doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to accumulate holiday pay. As a hard worker, there’s no doubt you’ll want to take some time off, and without holiday pay, doing this can be a bit of a worry. Make sure you’re rewarded when you’re working, and when you’re not.

Local Shifts – Travelling to and from work can take a big chunk of your day away, especially if you don’t drive (and even if you do, don’t get us started on rush hour!). Having the choice to work as close to home as you want gives you greater flexibility. At Medilink, we aim to keep staff commutes to less than 30 minutes each way.

Training – Whether it be when you join or a year down the line, training is important to ensure you can be confident when you go out to fulfil a shift. We offer ongoing training opportunities to keep you up to date with the latest knowledge needed.

Dedicated Support – Once you sign up, you don’t want to be left in the wild! That’s why it’s important to have a team that can help answer any questions – from getting extra shifts to getting directions to your next shift! All the staff are here to help YOU.

At Medilink Nursing, we strive to be the best Nurse Recruitment Agency out there, which is why we offer all of the above and are constantly aiming to improve what we offer.

What Is The Highest Paid Nursing Job?

Nurse jobs in agencies often pay more than those that aren’t with agencies.

We offer all of our staff, both Carers and Nurses, competitive rates of pay – it’s only fair.

What Does the “Agency” in “Nursing Agency” Really Mean?

A Nursing Agency is simply an organisation that provides nurses (both RMN and RGN) and Health Care Assistants to other Residential/Nursing Homes and Hospitals. They function a lot like recruitment agencies in practice.

Why do these places need Nurse Recruitment Agencies?

Sometimes it can be to fill in for an absent member of staff, and other times it could be to help take the pressure off other current members of staff.

Whatever the reason is, here at Medilink Nursing we want to make sure that these needs are met, and that all of our staff are comfortable and confident in their roles.

What Do Agency Nurses Do?

Agency Nurses fulfil temporary cover at Residential/Nursing Homes, as well as hospitals. Whether it’s a single 8 hours shift, filling in for the week, or helping with 1-to-1 care, the aim is to deliver fantastic care and help ease the burden on other staff at the residence.

The type of work that nurses actually undertake won’t vary from any other permanent work – there just might be a bit more variety. The last thing we’d want you to be doing is something you’ve never done before, and don’t feel comfortable doing.

Why Do Agency Nurses Get Paid More?

Carers and nurses working for agencies often get high rates of pay, which is partly because shifts could be at short notice. On top of this, as an agency worker, you are often challenged with a variety of different situations, so it’s only fair that the pay rewards reflect this.

How Are Nurse Recruitment Agency Workers Paid?

At Medilink Nursing, we pay all of our agency workers by the hour. This allows you to know exactly how many hours you need to work to get the pay you desire, and since you can be flexible with your hours, this can be as much, or as little, as you need!

Being paid by the hour also allows you to get paid the day after you work a shift! Yes, that’s right, if you so wish, you can receive a portion of your wage the day after you work it. So, if one day you need a little more cash in the bank, just let us know, and we’ll sort out the rest. You can read more about our next-day payments here.

What Are The Requirements To Join a Nurse Recruitment Agency?

Every agency has different requirements. Here at Medilink, on top of a can-do, positive attitude, we require all our Nurses and Carers to have a minimum of two years experience in the last five years in a Residential Home, Nursing Home or Hospital.

This experience must be from within the UK! This is to ensure all our staff can adapt to new residential home settings with minimal training. As with all healthcare jobs, we’ll require a valid DBS check, but don’t worry – these will be provided quickly and hassle-free by our sister company, Aaron’s Department.
