No. Our online platform is free for stores to sign up and access - you will only be charged if you book a locum.
We can help find locums for anything from one day to regular weekly cover. For opticians we have optometrists, dispensing opticians and optical assistants. For pharmacies we have pharmacists, accuracy checking technicians, dispensing assistants and medicine counter assistants.
We currently support independents across Greater London.
Our platform gives you greater control and transparency as you can browse detailed locum profiles and choose the locum you want for a shift. The platform is online which means you can access it 24/7 at your convenience. This is different to traditional agencies who select the locum for you, provide less information about the locum and can only help during their opening hours via email or phone.
The online platform searches through our database of locums to find the best matches for your store. We match locums that are available on the date requested, within reasonable commuting distance of the store, have used your system before and meet any additional requirements you have specified.
You will be able to see their work history, system experience, extra accreditations and reviews from previous stores they have worked with to check if they are a good match for your store.
Locum rates are set by the store. Zen Locum does not take any commission from locum pay.
Zen Locum ensures locums are on the GOC/GPhC register and have their indemnity insurance (where applicable). We also check identity, DBS certificates, right to work in the UK and professional references.
No. We do not charge any cancellation or emergency booking fees.
In addition to the 24/7 accessible platform, every store will have a dedicated locum manager who understands your specific needs and is available over the phone, text and by email if needed.
