A role defines the type of position required for a work shift.
An example of a role would be a Porter, HCA, Radiographer, Theatre Nurse, Clerk etc.
You can also create more specific roles like Nurse – Band 5, Nurse – Band 6, this can be useful when applying role rates and in terms of filtering for availability, permission to work etc.
Role rates can be applied in two modes
a) Flat rate mode where the pay rate and charge rate remains the same across the whole week.
b) STE rates mode where the pay rate and charge rate is defined based on a specific part of the day (day shift, night shift, weekend, etc)
