We are looking to recruit a Registered Nurse to join our Sidegate Lane Nursing home and make a real difference to the lives of our residents. Our Nursing Home is a friendly, welcoming and care personalised environment, providing support to 24 people with mental health needs and/or dementia. If you have excellent interpersonal skills and thrive on making a positive difference to people's lives, then come and join our established team and be part of something rewarding.

The role of Registered Nurse will include:

  • Preparing and monitoring client care plans and supervising the delivery of these, ensuring they meet the needs of the individuals and are adjusted as appropriate
  • Acting as an advocate for clients when liaising with multi-agency teams, ensuring their best interests and rights are promoted and protected
  • Building and maintaining close working relationships with clients, their families or guardians and relevant agency teams to ensure the best care is delivered
  • Assisting in the recruitment, performance and development of quality staff to ensure they operate to a high standard
  • Being involved in quality, risk, health and progress assessments, ensuring legislative, regulatory and business standards are maintained

Skills and experiences:

  • A relevant qualification (e.g. Registered Mental Health Nurse or Registered Learning Disability Nurse) is essential
  • Comprehensive experience of working with a similar client group, such as mental health or dementia, is essential
  • Excellent interpersonal skills allowing you to build strong and professional working relationships
  • Some knowledge of relevant legislation and its application is desirable
  • Recent experience of supervising clinical staff would be beneficial
  • Access to a vehicle would be beneficial but is not essential

Why work for us?

We support vulnerable people to live as independently as possible, by building their confidence and skills to realise their potential.

We are a national organisation but we think locally. We support people through supported housing, move-on accommodation, CQC registered services and floating support. We specialise in services for young people, homeless families and individuals, people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and people with mental health needs.

Ready to join us?
