Pay rates with The Guild

We pride ourselves on paying exceptional nursing agency pay rates

Working as a nurse requires a high level of skill and our outstanding pay rates reflect this. Nursing pay rates are dependent on location, specialism and experience and we calculate our pay rates based on grades. We have provided information around hourly rates and sick pay for each specialism we recruit for, including A&E nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants.
