No. It’s free to have a profile with us and we won’t take any commission from your pay.

DBS checks are recommended for anyone working with the public in an unsupervised context.

You can definitely still sign up! Once you've uploaded your CV, we'll be able to look at your experience, and help you figure out who would be best placed to act as your referees.
We work with stores across Greater London.
The rates are set by the stores and you will only see shifts that are in line with your rate preferences.
We will invoice the store on your behalf and send you a copy for your records. Payment is made directly to you and we ask that all invoices are paid within 2 weeks.
As soon as you’ve completed your profile with us, you’ll be able to receive our shift notifications. If you have all your documents ready to go, you could start receiving shifts as soon as tomorrow!
You’ll receive an instant notification via text or email when we have available shifts that are within your travel, pay and availability preferences. With Zen Locum, you don’t need to worry about missing a great shift or waste time searching through long emails or job posts.
When you receive a shift notification, you’ll also be able to see relevant information about that shift to help you decide whether to accept the booking. For example, the system the store uses, lunch break, and more.
Your profile includes your picture and a brief summary of your experience and qualifications.
Zen Locum is an online platform that directly connects locums to stores in their area. Agencies are a slow and expensive middleman between stores and locums. We run more of the process online making it easier and quicker to find, view and accept shifts.
