Call your establishment straight away - normally someone will/want to give up a week of nights if you ask. You’ll do 7 on and get 7 off. It’s 11hr shifts - you’ll have to do inundation and fire hood as a priority on training if not already in.

Depends: I got on a dedicated night team as no one wanted to work them.

Is it easy enough to get a week of nights off someone? The 7 days off is quite appealing to jet off for a few days.

Quick question- he nights.

I read if you do a week of nights you then get 7 days off the following week...are you paid for the week you are off? 🤔

I thought that was how it worked 😂 Because you're basically doing 2 weeks work in 1 week

People at my establishment will love me because I’ll do it every other month or so, wouldn’t want it permanently like but now and then would be alright.

I'd happily be on permanent nights. I've always worked a range of shifts and find I get more time with my kids when I'm on nights!

I'm going to speak with my mentor when I start and just let her know I'm more than happy for the night shifts.
