Locum Vs Perm

When deciding on either locum or permanent roles, you may like to weigh up the pros and cons

Here at Network Open, we take great pride in offering positions that meet the career and personal goals of our candidates. We can be as flexible as you want to be or, if you’d prefer, we can find you long-term stability.


Many of our locum workers say they enjoy the flexibility temporary work offers. You may be studying part time, have a young family to look after or simply like to sample working at different locations and practices to enhance your CV.

Locum roles are also ideal for those who are still undecided on what career to undertake; giving you the opportunity to test the water before diving in!

Network Open has close links with independent, multiple and domiciliary companies with a requirement for locum workers. They may be looking for staff on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.


If you know what career you want to work in, and prefer a greater sense of job security, then permanent work may be better for you. These jobs are usually full-time and you’ll be expected to complete a minimum 36-hour week.

Perm jobs often offer better overall employee packages – you may even be fortunate enough to drive a company car or receive health insurance!

Network Open specialises in finding candidates permanent positions with reputable companies, in locations desirable to you and with benefit packages that are in line with industry standards.
