Avoid Summer Stress: Manage your Work/Life balance with Newcross during the Summer Holidays

Summer holidays

Summer stress: Managing work life and sourcing affordable childcare in the summer holidays are two of the biggest headaches for parents at this time of year. For six weeks, any sort of prior routine is flung out the window. You’ve tried everything, from grandparents to holiday clubs and childminders... Overseeing the task of keeping your kids occupied over the hols feels a job in its own right, but what about your actual job?

Summer childcare costs have reached record highs, the cost of holiday childcare rising 4% since 2016 to an average of £125 per week, a Family and Childcare Trust report found. It's unsurprising, therefore, that many parents are opting to look for flexible work to fit around family needs, instead of working set hours and missing out on summer memories with the kids.

Newcross offers all the benefits of being with an agency, with the security of a permanent job. As a Nurse or Carer, you’ll have the flexibility to choose your hours, but you’ll have a permanent full- or part-time contract. Your rota will be entirely up to you – work with the same clients each week, or choose the shifts that fit in with your timetable. You can use our online diary system and smartphone app to let us know your availability.

Take advantage of flexible, agency-style working that fits around your childcare needs, but gives you all the benefits of a permanent contract, guaranteed hours and free ongoing training.

So, if you're a Registered Nurse or Healthcare Assistant looking for work to fit around childcare this summer, take a look at our part time roles. For more information feel free to contact your local branch.
