Nurses & Carers

Nurse24™ is a nursing agency run by nurses. We help you find the most rewarding shifts & support you with career development.

We connect you with a variety of flexible nursing and care shifts throughout the UK. 

Pay rates  vary per assignment and location. You will see the pay rate offer alongside other shift information before you accept the shift. 

The main reason you can no longer see the shift in the system is simply because the shift got accepted by another nurse or carer first. 

Don’t be discouraged! Due to the nature of agency roles, open shifts often fill quickly. Accept a shift as quickly as you can when you receive a notification.

Yes. If you need a DBS or your DBS needs updating we can apply for one for you. The cost of a DBS is £55.

Nurse24™ interviews happen through video recording software so that you can complete your interview whenever and wherever you want. The full interview only takes about 20 minutes.

Your interview will be fairly informal, but come prepared to impress. You’ll be recording answers to a series of questions that help us get to know you better, and then  scenario based questions that assess your skills and experience. We’re looking for motivated and enthusiastic nurses and carers, so this is your time to shine and stand out from the crowd.

All you need to participate in the interview is a smartphone or computer that has a webcam and mic (most smartphones and laptops do) – no fancy equipment required! And, don’t worry, if you don’t have access to a smartphone or computer with these capabilities, we can make special accommodations.

Yes you will need to have your own professional indemnity insurance. Nurses working outside of the NHS are legally required to have the correct professional indemnity insurance in retaining NMC registration. Professional indemnity insurance helps to cover you for any professional negligence claims or allegations of malpractice. You can get indemnity insurance from a number of sources. They’re easy to find on the internet and you’re able to choose from several options.

There are independent organisations which also provide this insurance, for example UNISON. If you’re a member of the RCN they will cover your professional actions.

We aim to get your worker profile approved as quickly as possible. A nurse adviser will guide you through the process. In order to approve your profile, we will require a clear DBS report, proof of eligibility to work in the UK, satisfactory references and mandatory training. If all goes smoothly, the process can take a few days.

A. We accept candidates who hold full-time /part-time posts with other organisations. Multi-agency registration is certainly permissible. However, we cannot supply you into the same workplace where you hold a substantive post but we can provide you with work elsewhere.

All open shifts are published in the app. Simply log into your account via the app or web portal. Apply for a shift with a single click.

You can cancel upcoming shifts by calling us on 03330051999(24hrs). Nurse24™ takes cancellations very seriously. By accepting a shift  you have entered into a contract with the employer to work the agreed date and time. If you frequently cancel shifts without valid explanations, employers may request to remove you from covering their allocated staff bank. This means you will get few  invitations to shifts via Nurse24™

Yes, you are entitled to 28 days paid holiday per year . Holiday Pay is at 12.07% of your total hours. This will be rolled up in your hourly pay rates. You do not need to claim this separately.

That’s a great question! The hourly rates for shifts are set by you – the Care home! You can indicate and udpate the hourly rate regularly. Your Care home will be charged a flat hourly fee on top of the hourly rate you pay nurses & carers.

Everyone who works in the UK is entitled to earn holiday pay. For every hour someone works they earn 12.07% holiday pay. This is paid on a rolling bases when you employ through Nurse24, so it’s all taken care of for you.
