A lovely Russian family based in Central London near Victoria are looking for a second Maternity Nurse on retainer to help them from early January 2019 with their newborn baby. The mother is having a C-Section scheduled on the 10th of January 2019. This is a 6-month booking where you will work one guaranteed 24/7 shift and 5 mornings a week (Monday - Friday) from 9am - 12noon. Besides this you will be on call to cover whenever the main Maternity nurse falls ill or needs extra time off. Flexibility in your availability is key.

Package Offered

  • You will be paid a set retainer of between £3000 - £5000 gross per month.
  • This would cover one 24/7 shift on Sundays, and 5 mornings a week (Monday - Friday) from 9am - 12noon.
