Book a Long Contract with the Same Nurse or Carer via Florence Exclusive

posted on
Care Home

You can now book longer contracts with Florence nurses and carers using our new feature, Florence Exclusive.

This means a single care-giver can work with you for an extended period, rather than several different temporary staff members. During this time, the nurse or carer will contractually agree not to work with any other providers

We know you still need extra people, but working with temporary staff is discouraged right now. Using Florence Exclusive helps you get quality nurses and carers, while complying with the effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus. 

It will also help you stay within the terms of receiving additional government funding following COVID-19, available via your local council. 

How it works: Florence Exclusive

What contract lengths can I book?

Contract lengths start from one month minimum.

You can book one, two or three-month-plus fixed term contracts; and set up more than one Florence Exclusive contract for your organisation as needed. 

How do I book contracts?

Set up is simple - follow the steps below:

  1. Complete a short form with details of the role(s) you’re looking for
  2. Receive a shortlist of candidates from Florence 
  3. Optional: take a video interview with anyone you haven’t worked with before
  4. Choose your preferred care-giver 
  5. Sign contract

How do rates and payment work?

  • Rates are to be determined between you and the nurse or carer
  • Individual shift timesheets are managed through Florence - this allows us to handle payment.

How do cancellations work?

  • If you cancel a shift, you will be charged for it.
  • If a nurse or carer cancels a shift, Florence will provide you with a replacement staff member.
  • If a nurse or carer cancels the contract, Florence will provide you with a replacement staff member to complete the contract.
