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
Cathkin House is a modern, purpose-built care home in the small village of Nerston, East Kilbride. Our dedicated team provides expert residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
Everyone at Cathkin House enjoys one-to-one attention and care. To help us learn about each individual and their likes, dislikes, hobbies and interests, we work with residents and their families to complete special 'All about me' booklets.
We also hold monthly meetings with residents, to talk about upcoming activities and get everyone’s suggestions about things like our menu. Our manager’s door is always open to residents and their relatives if anyone has a query or question.
Cathkin House has a cosy and welcoming atmosphere, and family pets are very welcome to visit. The home is within walking distance of local amenities and shops, and the village offers good bus connections to East Kilbride and Glasgow.
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 £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.
