Answer 5 short questions to find out if we’re right for each other.

1. Are you authorised to work in the UK?

Yes
No
Why are you asking me this?
By law, we can only work with healthcare professionals who are authorised to work in the UK.

Sadly, we are only able to recruit agency workers who are authorised to work in the UK and have current, unrestricted NMC or HCPC pins (excluding healthcare assistants).

If you would be interested in work opportunities outside of the UK, please contact our sister company, Pulse Nursing.

2. Which certification applies to you?

NMC
HCPC
HCA
None of these
Why are you asking me this?
We recruit nursing professionals registered with the NMC or HCPC.

At Thornbury Nursing, we can only work with NMC or HCPC registered professionals or experienced HCAs and nursing associates.

Unfortunately, we have had to close HCA applications for now. Our clients currently have a high demand for registered nurses and therefore our recruitment resources are focused on processing applications from registered nurses.

We will re-open HCA applications once this demand changes. Please continue to check our website periodically so you don’t miss out when our HCA applications re-open. Thank you for your understanding. In the meantime, you can visit our blog for content that may be of interest.

3. How much experience do you have?

< 6 months
6 – 12 months
1 – 5 years
> 5 years
Why are you asking me this?
We need specialists in their field who have gained the experience and confidence required to be launched into action in unfamiliar environments at short notice.

Sadly, we are only able to recruit agency workers who have a minimum of 6 months experience, sometimes more, in their specialism.

We would love you to get in touch with us again once you have gained more experience.

4. Are you able to pick up shifts with less than 4 hours’ notice, when available?

Yes
No
Why are you asking me this?
Our professionals are there for clients when no one else can be. Being a Thornbury worker means being able to pick up last-minute shifts when you are available. We make sure our workers are compensated for their commitment with exceptional pay rates.

Our clients rely on our workers to be available when no one else can support them. If you do not feel that you would be available at short notice, then sadly we may not be the agency for you.

If you are looking to join an agency where you can book shifts with advanced notice, then please visit our sister company Pulse Nursing.

5. Would you be willing to travel to another area to support clients?

Yes
No
Why are you asking me this?
We provide vital support across the length and breadth of the country. Our agency workers often need to travel, but we ensure all travel expenses are covered.

Our clients rely on our workers to be available when no one else can support them. If you do not feel that you would be available to travel long distances, then sadly we may not be the agency for you.

If you are looking to join an agency where you can book shifts closer to home, then please visit our sister company Pulse Nursing.
