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

Scarlet House care home has 86 bedrooms and has been designed around a circular plan. This is particularly helpful for residents with dementia to find their way around the home independently. There are no confusing dead ends, what's more, quiet rooms, sitting areas and lounges create 'destination' areas throughout the home where they can rest and take part in activities.

Bedrooms and communal spaces have been beautifully designed, bright and spacious - perfect for the many planned activities, for reading or relaxing, or for catching up with friends and family. Each bedroom has an en-suite wet room plus quality furniture and soft furnishings, a flat-screen television, adjustable profile bed and a 24-hour nurse call system. Residents are welcome to bring their own items of furniture or pictures to make their rooms feel more like home.

We believe that care home living should be all about enjoying a lifestyle that's relaxing, pampered, active and varied. That's why you'll also find a cinema, caf?? and even a hair and beauty room on the ground floor. It's all part of our commitment to help residents to continue doing the things they love in the comfort of the home.

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.
