Why join the bank?

Joining the staff bank gives you the freedom and flexibility to select the shifts that work for you, and to earn competitive rates. If you take a temporary contract with us, you’ll have the opportunity to gain new skills and experience, as well as getting a feel for what it’s like to work in one of our hospitals.

We offer regular shifts and medium to long-term assignments, with enhanced pay rates for nights, weekends and bank holidays. With an online booking system, choosing your shifts couldn’t be easier. And you’ll be paid weekly.

You’ll also benefit from access to the NHS pension scheme and, in some areas, you will receive a free uniform. 

Access to our shift portal

When you sign-up to our staff bank, you will have access to an online portal where you can see available shifts you are eligible to work, and book into them. When you’ve completed your shift, you log your hours online and your supervisor will authorise them.

If you are already working for the Trust and want to do extra shifts via the bank, you need confirmation from your manager. Normally Trust staff work on the bank in an equivalent role, or in a role which is a band lower than their own role.

If you are an allied health professional, a manager, or if you work in an administrative or clerical role, we will contact you if a temporary role that you can apply for becomes available.

Pay and benefits for bank staff

If you work for us through our staff bank you will be paid a week in arrears on a Friday. Your rate of pay will depend on your role and the area you will be working in.
