Registered General Nurse - Sandfields

Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

£14.50 to £15.00 per hour plus benefits

Are you experienced in supporting older people with complex care needs?

Are you an organised, methodical Nurse who is passionate about delivering positive change?

Then you can build a fast-moving nursing career with Care UK and help our residents get more out of life every day.

What you’ll do

Leading the care team during your shifts, you will make certain that we fully meet residents’ medical, physical and emotional requirements. Ensuring compliance with our clinical governance framework, you will mentor and motivate colleagues, champion residents’ safety and dignity and drive continuous improvement, whilst acting as Named Nurse for your own portfolio of service users.

Where you’ll work

Sandfields care home has some beautiful facilities that make it feel like more of a five star hotel than a care home. Built over three floors, close to Cheltenham Spa station, the home offers an array of different space for activities, relaxing or catching up with friends and family.

Each floor of the care home is divided into two suites, each with its own dining room and lounge. This helps to create a small close-knit ‘community within a community’. Experience has taught us that this is popular with residents as it helps them to feel more settled. However, light and airy communal spaces on each floor offer areas where residents can come together and do activities or catch up with loved ones.

Each of the 90 bedrooms is bright, spacious and very comfortable, with high quality furniture and soft furnishings, and has its own en-suite wet room. Other elements include a flat-screen television, adjustable profile bed and a 24-hour nurse call system, plus phone and internet connection points. All of the ground floor bedrooms open onto their own patios in our gardens, with room for pot plants and even a small table and chairs.

Who you are

An NMC Registered Nurse (RGN, RMN or RNLD), you will be well versed in care planning processes and fully familiar with clinical assessment tools.

You will be keen to develop your leadership skills and clinical knowledge, capable of building close relationships with residents and their families, and determined to drive continuous improvement.

Who we are

With 120 homes and day clubs across the UK, we provide expert respite, residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. Our highly personal, patient-centred approach has seen us enjoy rapid growth, with three new homes planned for next year, so we can offer wide-ranging career opportunities to people who care as deeply as we do.

What we offer

You can also expect competitive pay of £14.50-£15.00 per hour, payment of NMC pin renewal, access to a company paid web based system for your PIN re validation, bank holiday enhancements, paid DBS check, child care vouchers, cycle to work scheme, thousands of online and in-store discounts and free uniform.
