The Covid-19 pandemic has shown the world what we already knew. Nurses are the unsung heroes and backbone of healthcare systems. If you’re a nurse and haven’t already signed up with us here at LocumBase, keep reading for some food for thought. And for the many amazing nurses already on our platform, here’s why it pays to be part of our incredible community:
Agencies and labour brokers are expensive
The use of LocumBase.com is free forever to locums on the Basic Locum subscription. Typically, labour brokers take a percentage of a worker’s earnings and often insist on complicated fixed-term contracts. Even specialized agencies have complex fee structures, require tons of paperwork, and entail some form of contract lock-in. While not all agencies or labour brokers are unscrupulous, a good number of them encourage contracts that aren’t mutually beneficial, and essentially charge nurses for going to work.
LocumBase doesn’t ask you to part with your hard-earned money or sign lengthy, unintelligible contracts. We facilitate all the boring admin on your behalf so you can focus on what you do best.
LocumBase gives you flexibility
You get to decide when you want to work and how much you want to work. We think you deserve to have control over your shifts, number of working hours, and the type of work you do. You can choose to work over Easter, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or not.
The flexibility to pick when and where to work shouldn’t be a luxury reserved for the lucky few.
Better work-life balance
Because LocumBase gives you greater control over your working patterns, you can provide your best level best level of care without worrying about extreme stress or burnout from being overworked. Being part of the LocumBase community allows you the freedom to combine working with other responsibilities, so that your working life adapts to your needs, not the other way around.
