Competitive Salary 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 nursing team, 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

Winchcombe Place has 80 bedrooms, all ensuite, and all with subtly different outlooks and colour schemes, so there’s a room to suit every taste. Some of the rooms are close to the coffee shop, hair salon and cinema, so are perfect for people who like to be in the heart of things. Some of the downstairs rooms offer direct access to our gardens and courtyards, suiting keen gardeners or residents keen to bring a small pet. Every room has its own flat-screen TV, phone and internet connections, adjustable profile bed and 24-hour nurse call system.

At Winchcombe Place care home each floor has its own dining room and lounge. This helps to create a more close-knit atmosphere – a sort of ‘home within a home’. This layout particularly suits residents living with dementia who prefer peace and quiet and familiar faces, but is actually popular with everyone for its intimate community feel.

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

As one of our valued Clinical Leads you can benefit from both clinical and management training, enabling you to become a clinical lead, senior trainer or home manager.

You can also expect competitive salary, a choice of day, night or weekend shifts and comprehensive benefits including 25 days’ annual leave, a stakeholder pension and life assurance scheme, bank holiday enhancements, paid DBS check, child care vouchers, thousands of online and in-store discounts and free uniform.
