Have you seen a rate of a job which you would like to negotiate? When you use Network Locum to book your sessions, you are able to use our 'Negotiate Rate' feature.
On the 'Find a Job' page, underneath the 'Apply' button of the session that you're interested in, you will see the 'rate negotiation' link.
Once you've clicked the 'negotiate the rate' link, you'll see a pop up box where you can amend the rate to the hourly rate you desire and a free text box to message to the practice manager.
When you've filled in your desire rate and left message for the practice, click 'negotiate with new rate'.
If a practice accepts your desired rate, they will book you into the session. If they'd like to negotiate this further, they will respond to your message.
Please note; if you would only like to negotiate the times, do not use the 'negotiate the rate' feature and use the 'speak to practice manager' button instead.
How to negotiate the rate when applying for sessions
1. From 'Find a Job' click 'View' on the job that you would like to apply to
2. From here you will be taken to the full job description, to apply with a rate negotiation click 'negotiate the rate'.
3. The next page you are taken to is where you can detail your desired rate and send a message to the practice manager. You can also use this box to discuss the job hours alongside the reason for the rate change if needed. Enter your desired rate, tick the 'apply' box, write a message to the practice manager and click 'Negotiate'. Your application has now been made.
