This is the third in a 3-part series about veterinary locums – either working as one or hiring one in your clinic. 

Why do locums earn more?

This is the third of a three part series about locuming – whether it’s for you or not – things to consider.  

This week we’re going to look at why it appears locums earn more per hour than employees doing the same job inside a clinic.

This episode is for you if you’re about to start out as a locum or you’re employed at a clinic and maybe feeling a little resentful because a locum might, at first glance, be earning a truckload more per hour than your clinic is paying you.

Other episodes in this series:

Episode 001 – the legal differences between being a locum (self employed contractor) and employee

Episode 002 – is being a locum for you – are you cut out to be a temp / locum / independent contactor or is being an employee better suited to your personality style?
