Pay rates

Our nurses provide exceptional services, and we pay exceptional rates in return

We believe in rewarding our nurses with pay rates that reflect their skills and the demands they are likely to encounter in the work place. Take a look at our latest pay rates below:

We’re straight on rates

You deserve to work with an agency that is open and honest with you about your pay and any associated fees. At Thornbury Nursing, we will always be honest with you. We will always pay what we say.

Your payment options

We only pay nurses directly and tax your income at source (‘PAYE’), so the changes to the IR35 rules governing Personal Services Companies (PSCs) do not apply to nurses working through us.

Pension scheme

Under the Pensions Act 2008 every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute towards it. Auto enrolment occurs 3 months after your first payment from us. You will be enrolled into the People’s Pension scheme. You will automatically contribute 3% and Thornbury will contribute 2% for the current tax year (18/19) and this will increase to 5% (you) and 3% (Thornbury) in the new tax year. Please contact the payroll team for more information on 0345 120 5333 or email
