Job Description

Senior Nurse - General

Our client will look to you to provide the leadership that ensures each and every resident in your charge has their physical, psychological and social needs met - and that they get the most they possibly can from life day in, day out. A hands-on leader, you'll not only supervise the delivery of the highest-quality nursing care to residents - you'll provide it, too, along with impeccable clinical leadership to members of your team from nurses to carers.

Whether you're assessing the needs of a new resident, making sure all safeguarding policies are being acted on, taking part in audits, or ensuring we're keeping scrupulous records, you'll make sure your team is reaching the highest standards. We'll also look to you to oversee the administration of medicines by your team in line with NMC regulations, and manage stock levels effectively. Above all, you'll be an inspirational leader, supporting, supervising and mentoring your team at every turn, and ensuring they have the clinical training they need to provide the very best care.

You will need a current NMC registration, RN (General) and evidence of a mentoring or supervision qualification. You've already spent time working with older people, and have acted as a clinical mentor, including supporting newly qualified nurses through their preceptorship. What's more, you've proved you're a natural leader and problem solver, with a can-do attitude, a resilient nature and a track record of delivering improvements in care.

Up-to-date with the most recent clinical practices, you also have professional experience of producing well-developed care plans and detailed risk assessments. You'll also need an understanding of regulatory frameworks, as well as DoLs/MCA and Royal Pharmaceutical Guidelines.

In return, you'll receive one of the best reward packages in the care sector. As well as a competitive salary, this will include:

  • Free learning and development
  • Profit-share scheme
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Retail discounts
  • Leisure savings
  • Holiday and travel discounts
  • Rewards points
  • Mentor bonus scheme

If you have the unique qualities required for this exciting role and want to work with an organisation that provides the type of care you'd expect for your loved ones, we would welcome your application.
