At Four Seasons Health Care, we don’t run nursing facilities. We create homes – the most supportive, caring, warmest homes there are. As a nurse, you’ll play a huge part in that as you help us to make even more of our residents smile. In turn, you’ll be smiling too as you enjoy a choice of shifts, competitive pay, brilliant benefits and a faster, supportive route to management, if that’s what you want.
We have the tools, technology and talented people to help you provide the nursing care you work hard to deliver.
There’s every opportunity to progress (in every possible way too, whether part time, full time or bank).
People will look up to you, and you’ll never look back.
We don’t see different faces every day - We make a difference to the same faces, every day.Job Requirements
Seen as specialists in dementia care and RCN accredited, we’ll support you to be the best too – no matter what area of nursing is in your future. Nurses here are respected from day one. Developing, implementing and evaluating personalised care plans with our residents and multi-disciplinary team, you’ll be the go-to person, leader and mentor for all things clinical in the home. That kind of responsibility isn’t for everyone. But if you’re a nurse who wants to step up, collaborate and handle medicine management, you’ll develop clinical skills, confidence and our full trust.
Four Seasons isn’t about seeing ten different patients every day. It’s about getting to know each of our residents, their families and most of all, their needs. You really will become an important part of their life, as you ensure they feel settled and welcomed from the moment they join us. And we hope they’ll become a big part of yours too. It’s not always easy. Our residents all have different needs, wants and ambitions, so you’ll need to be a nurse who’ll go that extra mile for the smile.
Innovation is important to us. We’ve tools and technology in place to enable you to focus on building relationships. And even a team whose job it is to improve everyone’s quality of life, from looking at our environment to supporting recruitment to listening to your ideas. It’s all about supporting you to do what you do best – nurse. So, apply now and start feeling cared for too.
