Wells-Brooks Associates are working in partnership with an outstanding care provider who urgently seek an experienced Senior Registered Nurse to join their amazing team in their beautiful care home in Congleton.

About the role:
Reporting to the Deputy Manager, you will work with a team of dedicated Nurses and Care Assistants, assisting them to achieve our high standards of care and clinical excellence. Through regular staff supervision, you will help develop the clinical expertise of the care team and will provide specialist clinical advice to support them. You will be assessing prospective residents, understanding their individual needs to enable effective care planning, and delivery of that care, from admission. You will be responsible for regular medication reviews, ensuring records are accurate and that all relevant documentation is always up to date. An open communication style is essential in this role along with the ability to implement action plans for improvement, and to reinforce our reputation within the local community for the delivery of excellent care.

About you:
This is an ideal opportunity for a senior Registered Nurse with robust clinical experience, wanting to take the next step in their career in clinical management.

Applicants will need to have relevant, demonstrable experience and must be highly motivated with strong leadership capabilities. Excellent oral and written communication skills are essential as you will need to impart complex information to residents, their families and care staff with different levels of understanding. Professional in both approach and appearance, we are looking for individuals with a genuine warm and friendly manner, who can multi-task where necessary whilst remaining enthusiastic in their approach. Capable of working under your own initiative, you will be IT literate with a working knowledge of MS Office and you must be able to pay attention to the details. You will also be available to work shifts, including some weekends.

Successful appointments are subject to satisfactory references and a DBS check. Candidates must have a valid NMC Pin Number and be authorised to work in the EU. A clean driver's licence and your own transport are also essential.

To ensure our staff can provide the highest possible standards of care, we provide a comprehensive induction programme as well as on-going training and development. Relevant courses, such as moving and handling, infection control, fire training and food hygiene, ensure all our employees continually update their skills and knowledge.
