Up to £18.00ph + Excellent benefits including £5000 Love Bupa Bonus
Salary is dependent upon experience, capability & qualifications
Bring your clinical expertise to one of our care homes, in a role
that is both hugely rewarding and offers real autonomy to practice.
About the role
In what is a tremendously diverse role, you'll lead, motivate and
generally bring out the best in our Heol Don team. Offering clinical
guidance and training to your colleagues, you'll ensure they're
equipped and inspired to deliver the very highest standards of care.
That care starts with the detailed assessments you'll complete and
the individualised plans you'll develop for each resident - ensuring
that not only are their physical needs met, but their emotional
well-being is supported and their social needs are too.
On a practical level, you'll ensure our working practices are safe
and conform to all the relevant regulations and legislative standards.
But like every member of the team, you'll know that providing great
care means constantly looking beyond the established way of doing
things for opportunities to do things even better.
As an organisation, we're focused on continuous improvement. And
that's something we'll expect you to strive for as well. Not least
because, doing the job you do, you'll be perfectly placed to suggest
the kind of changes that would have the most positive and profound
impact on our residents' lives.
What you'll need
A passion for caring for the elderly and infirm, and for helping
people maintain their dignity and independence
A proven ability to lead, motivate and mentor a team, delegate
effectively and promote excellent customer relationships
A willingness to coach, guide and support your team on a daily
basis, including providing formal and informal programmes
A clear understanding of NMC Codes of Conduct and a genuine
commitment to expanding your professional expertise
A respectful, courteous and compassionate nature and belief in
giving your personal best at all times
RN status and a valid NMC PIN
What's in it for you?
