How long will it take to sign up?

It can take as little as 3 working days to register with Florence. If all your documents are eligible and in date, we are able to approve your application quickly. 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.

How will I get paid?

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).

I have completed registration with Florence – how do I access Florence Academy?

Log in to Florence Academy with the same details you use to log in to Florence.

You will be able to take all Academy courses and download course certificates for free.

What information will I be able to see before booking shifts?

In the app, you’ll be able to filter shifts by:

  • Hourly rate.
  • Distance from your address.
  • Shift type (day or night).
  • Break information (length of time; paid or unpaid).
  • Travel and parking information.
  • How other care professionals have rated the care provider.

Does Florence offer holiday pay?

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.

Do you offer visa sponsorship?

We do not 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.

Do you offer any training?

If you’re a care organisation, you can provide world-class online training to your team via Florence Academy for business, including the Care Certificate. Choose and assign from 100+ online courses, track progress at-a-glance and send auto-reminders so your team’s training never goes out of date.

If you’re a care professional, you can train for free 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 100+ 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.
