So, what is ‘going Permanent’ all about and how can it work for you as a Nurse looking for your next career move? To unpack the details, we spent some time with TTM Permanent Nursing Team Leader, Louise Byrne

What is a Permanent Nurse?

As a Nurse in a Permanent role you have a long-term job as agreed by a contract between you and the employer. There is no predetermined end date to the job. You might also choose a fixed-term contract to replace a Permanent Nurse who is taking special leave, such as maternity.

How You Benefit

From income security to training and development, there are many good reasons for choosing a Permanent Nursing job:

The Role to Suit

Louise and her team of consultants support all levels of Permanent Nurses – from Staff Nurses up to Director of Nursing and above. She helps Nurses find their fit as Registered General Nurses (RGN), Registered Nurses Intellectual Disabilities (RNID), Registered Practical Nurses (RPN), Mental Health Nurses (RMN) and Registered Children’s Nurses (RCN):

We place Nurses across all settings including Acute, Intellectual Disabilities, Community, Mental Health, Care of the Elderly, Occupational Health, Health Insurance and Management,” says Louise.

Access to Employee Benefits

A Permanent role will normally give you full company benefits such as a pension, sick pay, maternity benefits, generous annual leave, health insurance and bonuses. This can provide valuable financial peace of mind.

Training and Career Progression

As a permanent employee you will enjoy access to good training opportunities and further education, helping you develop your career. For example, your employer may pay for you to do postgraduate studies. Mentorships and structured career developments are often offered too – helping you map out your goals for the future.

Many Nurses who know they will be wanting to apply for a mortgage will choose Permanent roles as this is required by the banks. The other key factor is progression: if you want to be offered every opportunity to train and learn, Permanent roles are ideal,” says Louise.

Belonging and Integrating

Permanent Nurses become integrated into their employer’s work culture and feel part of the team – making it easy to build relationships and networks.
