ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Unit Nurse Manager (General) at a Barchester care home, you’ll use your compassion and initiative to make sure our residents get the quality care they deserve. We’ll look to you to plan, manage and monitor the delivery of nursing that meets all of our residents’ needs. This means you’ll implement person-centred care plans that make a real difference to our residents’ day-to-day lives. As part of your wide range of responsibilities, you can expect to plan rotas, recruit, train and mentor staff and build relationships with local regulators and social services. In the role of Unit Nurse Manager (General), you’ll have the freedom and autonomy to take your unit from strength to strength, with plenty of opportunities for professional development along the way.
To join us as a Unit Nurse Manager (General), you’ll need to be a Registered Nurse (RGN) with a current NMC registration. Experience in producing well-developed care plans and detailed 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. 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
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Nurse Mentor and Refer a Friend bonus schemes
• Offer to pay Tier 2 visa application fee for eligible nurses
If you’d like to use your clinical and people 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.
