Agency nurse jobs offer a wealth of advantages, from flexible hours to highly competitive pay rates. However, something that’s often overlooked is the additional benefits available when working with the nursing recruitment agency itself. Each agency is different, so be sure to do you research and engage with an agency that suits you and your needs.  At Mayday Healthcare, we take pride in our commitment to supporting our nurses through the entire recruitment process. No matter your chosen speciality or band, the Mayday team are available to guide you. Here’s a few of the things we do to ensure we can deliver the best possible service to our agency nurses;
