Join our bank team

It is now the best time to join the Bank. As you will already be aware, Monitor plan to bring agency pay in line with substantive pay by spring 2016. Here at YDH our top priority is the quality of care given to our patients, and without you we couldn’t do this. We want more nurses to join our substantive and bank roles working together to deliver the best care to each and every one of our patients. Our focus is delivering quality care based on patient’s needs, and staffing accordingly, rather than staffing to ratios.
Flexibility in our staffing is central to quality care which is why we are investing in our bank pay packages.

If you join now you could earn up to £394 per shift* – PLUS – an extra 15% Bank bonus (added to both basic pay and enhancements, for contracted staff Bank hours over 100, and Bank only staff over 200 hours). There are also Hot Shifts available, for those hard to fill shifts, where you could earn an extra £75 per shift.
*the rate quoted is based on a band 5 staff nurse working on a Sunday. Rates for HCAs will vary – see tables below.

Bank pay explained

  • Basic pay – ALL Bank hours are paid at the top of the pay band
  • Out of Hours enhancements – recognises out of hours working, as per Agenda for Change
  • Working Time Directive payment – extra 12.07% to recognise that Bank work does not accrue holiday
  • 50% enhancement – paid for hours worked over 37.5 hours per week, always paid to full time and part time staff who qualify.**

**Bank only staff will not qualify for 50% enhancements therefore take up a substantive contract to maximise your earning potential!
