Staff Bank

Are you looking to tailor your shifts to suit your needs? Joining the Staff Bank is a great way to enhance your earnings and your skillset. This is great for those who cannot commit to a regular pattern of working or those who find it difficult to find posts with the hours and times to suit them.

The bank provides an opportunity to experience the majority of wards and departments in the hospital before potentially applying for a substantive contract. 

We have three different Staff Banks at the Royal Devon:

  • Nursing, Midwifery, Administrative and Clerical Staff Bank (managed for us by NHS Professionals)

  • Estates and Facilities Bank 

  • Allied Health Professionals

What pay and benefits will I get?

What pay and benefits will I get?

All of the Bank Staff employed directly by the Trust are paid in arrears for shifts worked each month according to the National Agenda for Change pay scales. Bank-only workers qualify for the generous NHS Pension alongside 28 days pro-rata annual leave per year. Currently, there is no provision for paid maternity leave or occupational sick pay, but you will be entitled to Statutory Maternity Pay. The amount you'll get depends on the amount of National Insurance contributions you make.

You do need to work at least one bank shift in six months, to remain part of the Bank.
