A Golden Hello is just one of the ways we’ll reward you when you join Barchester in this role. 

As a Charge Nurse at a Barchester Care Centre, you’ll use your compassion and experience to make sure our teams are delivering the quality care we’re known for. We’ll look to you to provide clinical leadership to everyone from junior nurses to clinical practitioners. You’ll set an example by building meaningful relationships with our patients living with conditions such as dementia and brain injuries which cause a range of complex behaviours.
You’ll assess each patient’s physical, psychological and social needs and collaborate with their families to create care plans, as well as evaluate them against their changing needs. Day-to-day, we’ll also rely on you to allocate key workers to patients, orientate new staff and mentor them to the highest standards of care. You can also expect to support our senior clinical staff and assist with investigations or complaints – just one of the ways you’ll make sure we’re always treating our patients with dignity and respect. As a Charge Nurse, you’ll make a real difference to the lives of your patients, their families and your team.
To join us as a Charge Nurse you’ll need to be a Registered Nurse with a current NMC registration and supervision qualification. Experience in producing well-developed care plans and risk assessments is important, as is an up-to-date knowledge of recent clinical practices and regulatory frameworks, including DoLs/MCA and Royal Pharmaceutical guidelines. We’ll also look for extensive nursing experience in a mental health setting, in particular caring for patients with dementia. You’ll be a natural leader who has acted as a clinical mentor, including supporting newly qualified nurses through their preceptorship. Dedicated, ambitious and resilient, you’ll have a strong track record of delivering improvements to achieve quality care.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:
• Free learning and development
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Nurse Mentor and Refer a Friend bonus schemes
• Offer to pay Skilled Worker visa application fee for eligible nurses

If you’d like to use your clinical and leadership skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding and empowering place to be.
