We don't charge a subscription or cancellation fee. You only pay when you actually use us.
We charge a per day booking fee, based on the typical volume of days you book per month.Get started
It’s free to sign up for an account with us and you’ll only be charged a booking fee per day, once we’ve found you a locum and they’ve completed a shift.
For Opticians we have Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and Optical Assistants. For Pharmacies, we have Pharmacists, Technicians, and Dispensers. We can help find locums for all of your needs from one day cover, regular weekly cover right the way through to finding a permanent hire.
We currently support pharmacies and opticians across Greater London.
Our platform gives you greater control and transparency that allows you to browse detailed locum profiles and choose the locums you want. The platform is online, which means you can access it 24/7!
Our smart platform searches through our database of over 3,000 qualified locums to find the best locums for your needs. We prioritise finding high-quality locums with the right systems experience and accreditations, all in your local area.
You will be able to see their years of experience, system experience, additional accreditations and even proximity to your store to find the locums you’d like to invite.
Locum rates are set by the store when creating the shift. The Zen Locum team are also available to help guide you on current locum rates in your area of London.
Zen Locum requires that locums provide not only the applicable Right to Work documents, GoC/GPhC registrations and Indemnity Insurance, but also ask that they provide a DBS certificate, certificates for additional services, a current CV, and a set of professional references.
No. We don’t charge any cancellation fees but ask that stores give as much notice as possible before making a cancellation to give the locum enough time to make alternative arrangements.
In addition to 24/7 access to the platform, you will have a dedicated account manager to understand your specific needs and who will be available by phone, text or email.
