£14.50 to £15.50 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
Birchwood is a modern and welcoming purpose built home located in a quiet residential area of Newbury. We offer specialist care for people who have Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia and we also provide sensitive and supportive end of life care.
Throughout the home, you’ll notice simple design features such as colour-coded suites and memory boxes which help residents with dementia to feel at ease and to engage with their environment.
Our full and varied programme of activities is based on what residents tell us they enjoy doing, as well as new things that people are keen to try for the first time. We make the most of the lovely countryside surrounding Newbury and the many local attractions within easy reach. We’re lucky to be close to the River Thames, Kennet and Avon canal, Beale Park and the castles at Highclere and Donnington.
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-£15.50 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.
