Are you experienced in supporting older people with complex care needs?
Are you an organised, methodical Nurse who is passionate about delivering positive change?
Then you can build a fast-moving nursing career with Care UK and help our residents get more out of life every day.

What you'll do

Leading the care team during your shifts, you will make certain that we fully meet residents' medical, physical and emotional requirements. Ensuring compliance with our clinical governance framework, you will mentor and motivate colleagues, champion residents' safety and dignity and drive continuous improvement, whilst acting as Named Nurse for your own portfolio of service users.

Where you'll work

Abney Court is built within the beautiful grounds of Abney Hall in Cheadle. Even though the care home is a state-of-the-art new building, it has been designed to reflect the character of the local area. The home's lounges, dining rooms and the coffee shop are named after local landmarks and historical figures, and vintage photos around the home enable residents who have lived locally to recall memories, people and places from the past.

Abney Court is built over three floors, with each floor divided into smaller suites or units. Each suite has its own comfortable lounge, bistro-style dining room and en-suite bedrooms. It's a design with proven appeal for residents who are living with dementia, who prefer less hustle and bustle and like to see the same familiar faces.

Every aspect of our new care home has been designed to enable residents to continue enjoying a superb quality of life. On the ground floor the care home has a stylish coffee shop, where residents are able to enjoy a fancy coffee and cake while chatting to visitors. They can watch the latest films or classic movies in our fully-equipped cinema. What's more, our in-house hair and beauty salon means residents can enjoy pamper sessions whenever they wish. A ground floor garden room is a lovely place to sit and enjoy views of our gardens even on rainy days.

The gardens at Abney Court are a real drawcard of the care home. The brick walls of Abney Hall's grounds provide a charming and secluded backdrop, and the gardens are beautifully landscaped and planted with a range of shrubs, flowers and trees, including plants chosen for their sensory properties. All the outside spaces are fully accessible to wheelchair users, have plenty of different seating areas and are secure, so residents living with dementia are able to stroll independently around the gardens. Green fingered residents are also very welcome to help out doing any light gardening jobs.

Who you are

An NMC Registered Nurse (RGN, RMN or RNLD), you will be well versed in care planning processes and fully familiar with clinical assessment tools. You will be keen to develop your leadership skills and clinical knowledge, capable of building close relationships with residents and their families, and determined to drive continuous improvement.

Who we are

With 120 homes and day clubs across the UK, we provide expert respite, residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. Our highly personal, patient-centred approach has seen us enjoy rapid growth, with three new homes planned for next year, so we can offer wide-ranging career opportunities to people who care as deeply as we do.

What we offer

As one of our valued nurses you can benefit from both clinical and management training, enabling you to become a clinical lead, senior trainer or home manager. You can also expect competitive pay of between GBP18.00 and GBP18.50 per hour, a choice of day, night or weekend shifts and comprehensive benefits including access to a company paid web based system for your PIN revalidation, bank holiday enhancements, paid DBS check, child care vouchers, thousands of online and in-store discounts and free uniform.
