Newbury, Berkshire, England
Deputy Manager - Birchwood
£38,000-£40,000 per annum 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
Supporting and deputizing for the Home Manager, you will provide inspiring leadership to nursing and care colleagues and oversee the delivery of high quality clinical and pastoral care. You will focus on residents with complex needs, so it’s vital that you can conform with the latest guidelines, take far-reaching decisions and maintain the highest levels of clinical governance, whilst regularly auditing practices and procedures.
Where you’ll work
Birchwood is a modern three-storey care home that has been specifically designed with older people in mind.
Our superb facilities and modern accommodation offer residents both comfort and security in a relaxed and homely environment. Residents’ rooms are large and comfortable, with en-suite facilities, stylish furniture, connection points for phone, internet and television, and a 24-hour nurse call button.
The rooms are arranged in five colour-coded suites, to help residents who are living with dementia to understand where they are and feel comfortable in their surroundings. The rooms on the upper floors enjoy pleasant views of our garden. Each floor has a choice of lounges and quiet rooms, so residents can easily choose to socialise with friends or find a calm space to relax or spend time with visitors and we also have two activity rooms.
Throughout the home you’ll notice a friendly, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. You’ll see lots of photos of residents taking part in activities at the home or out in the local area. We have a lovely garden and we also have a quiet lounge that overlooks the garden – residents particularly enjoy the fish tank that we have in this lounge.
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, 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.
