*Survey of 726 Florence professionals, Nov 2022
We have shifts available across the UK in the social care sector and NHS.
We’ve recently improved and updated the app – just submit your basic details, including your postcode, and we’ll tell you if there are shifts currently available near you.
If there isn’t any work nearby, we’ll add you to our waiting list. When shifts do become available, we’ll email you so you can continue registering.
It can take as long as three to four weeks to register with Florence, but if all your documents are eligible and in date, we are often able to approve your application sooner than that.
References and security checks often take the longest to sort out, so we recommend getting these ready first. We’ve put together a handy guide to registration here for social care, and here for NHS shifts.
Our rates are set by the NHS trusts and the social care organisations we work with. This means the rates can change depending on your location, skills and preferences.
Rates can also change depending on the staffing needs of a care organisation or area – for example, if more care professionals are needed to fill shifts in a particular area, rates can go up.
Here’s a guide to the sort of rates you might see for advertised shifts:
Important: you might see rates higher or lower than this.
Once you’re fully registered, you’ll be able to see all the roles and rates available near you.
In the app, you'll be able to filter by:
You’ll get paid directly into your bank account every Thursday. If you need to get paid faster, we offer an ‘Instant Pay’ option: you can receive up to 60% of your pay when your timesheet gets approved (for a £1 admin charge).
We don’t currently offer visa sponsorship, but if you’re currently in the UK on an eligible visa and have enough relevant care experience, you can register with Florence.
You’ll earn holiday pay every time you work a shift, and we’ll include it with your pay every Thursday. You can choose to take holiday whenever you like, using the holiday pay you’ve saved.
You’ll see the gross amount – hourly rate, plus holiday pay – for each available shift on the Florence app. We’ll break down hourly pay and holiday pay on your payslip, too, so you’ll know how much you’ve accrued.
You can train in our e-learning space for health and social care professionals, Florence Academy.
Florence care professionals can take free mandatory courses during registration. Once you’re fully registered, you’ll have free access to all 70+ courses, which you can use for your professional development.
If you’ve never worked in care before, we offer a free Pathway to Care course. This includes everything you need to know to begin working in health and social care, so it’s a great way to kick-start your career.
Non-Florence care professionals can take courses for free and then choose to buy a certificate for £2.99 + VAT.
