Getting your UK RGN has just become EASIER than ever. And we’ll cover the cost!
For many years, Continental Nurse has specialized in connecting the best nurses from around the world with the flexibility and freedom of “travel nursing,” short term commitments in the UK for three months at a time. But the truth is we’ve always been placing great nurses at great hospitals and naturally those hospitals don’t want to let them go. We’ve listened to nurses who want to come to the UK but need a Tier 2 work permit and are searching for staff positions. We’ve listened to the hospitals who value the high quality nurses we recruit, see first-hand those nurses excel and never want to let them go. Along with travel assignments, we are now placing the best nurses in the best hospitals in permanent positions.
Here are just some of the benefits we offer nurses seeking a Tier 2 staff position:
- Certificate of sponsorship
- Work visa
- Subsidized or completely paid for airfare to the UK
- Meet and greet at the airport and onward journey organized
- NHS employees start with 35 paid holiday days a year
- 30% enhancement pay for nights/Saturdays
- 60% enhancement pay for Sundays and bank holidays
- Superb pension
- Temporary housing
It’s an exciting opportunity and we offer much more than these highlights. Of course, if you do have a choice and can get a visa without a sponsor we always recommend the travel assignment. We call it “trying without buying.” Three months is the ideal amount of time to spend in a location. Long enough to get to know the hospital staff and area and short enough so that if it isn’t your ideal assignment, it’s over before you know it. Try at least a few before signing on as staff.
