Florence registration guide

1. Go to our website

You can sign up by going to our homepage on your computer or mobile. Just make sure you have access to your documents from whichever device you choose. You can take pictures of your documents with the camera on your mobile and submit those, as long as they are clear enough to read.

2. Easily upload your documents

You will then be guided through the easy to use, online registration process where you will simply upload the required documents and submit your references.We check things such as your DBS certificate and references so that the care home operators who post their shifts to Florence know that their residents are in good hands.

And the reason we require a picture of your passport or biometric ID card to do a Right to Work check to make sure you are eligible to work in the UK. Your information is kept secure with Florence and is never shared with a third party.

Not sure if you have all the mandatory training documents you need? You can do all the training courses online for free through Florence Academy and link your Florence account to upload your completed training certificates automatically.

3. Complete your Florence nurse or carer profile

While you are waiting for your documents to be verified and your references to be confirmed, you can complete your Florence nurse or carer profile. The stronger your profile, the better your chances of booking the shifts you want. You can personalise it to show your work ethic, personality, and experience to give yourself an edge while applying to shifts.

4. Browse and book shifts!

Once your application has been approved, you can browse the available shifts in your area. Sort them by day or night shifts, weekdays or weekends, date range, and radius. Apply to the ones that suit your schedule! Don't be discouraged if you don't book the first shift you apply to.

One way to further increase your chances (beyond having an amazing profile) is to apply to more than one shift on the same date. It's actually impossible to double book yourself on Florence so don't be shy with your applications.

Once you are confirmed for a shift, your other applications for the same date are automatically removed for you. You're welcome! There's really no need to fear the online registration process with Florence. We strive to make it as easy as possible (even for those who don't use computers everyday).
