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 Croft House 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?

A competitive salary and benefits that include:

Autonomy to practice
The £5000* Love Bupa Bonus is an incentive paid to nurses in installments, over a 3 year period
Bupa's specially designed Nurse Pathway
Continuous CPD and access to external scholarships and academic development

About the home

When it came to designing Croft House, a great deal of thought and care went into its layout and the types of care it would offer its residents. The home is set in stunning, well-maintained gardens and is also situated within walking distance of the main high street of Great Dunmow - which is ideal for those residents to get out and about.
Croft House provides long-term care for the frail elderly, as well as residential, nursing, convalescence and palliative care. It also specialises in caring for people with Parkinson's. Short breaks and respite are also in the home's overall care plan, as is care for residents who have had strokes.
Languages spoken include Romanian, Malayalam and Damil, French and Spanish.
