ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Unit Nurse Manager (Mental Health) at a Barchester care home, you’ll use your compassion and initiative to make sure our residents get the quality care they deserve. We’ll look to you to plan, manage and monitor the delivery of the highest quality nursing and mental health care. You’ll assess the needs of your residents and implement people-centred care plans that make a real difference to our residents’ day-to-day lives. As part of your wide range of responsibilities, you’ll plan rotas, recruit, train and mentor staff and build strong relationships with local regulators and social services. As a Unit Nurse Manager (Mental Health), you’ll have the freedom and autonomy to take your unit from strength to strength, with plenty of opportunities for professional development along the way.
To join us as a Unit Nurse Manager (Mental Health), you’ll be a Registered Nurse (RMN) with a current NMC registration. Experience in providing care for older people and those with dementia is important, as is a successful track record of well-developed care plans and detailed risk assessments. We’ll also look for an up-to-date knowledge in the most recent clinical practices and an understanding of regulatory frameworks, including DoLs/MCA and Royal Pharmaceutical guidelines. You’ll be a natural leader who has acted as a clinical mentor, including supporting newly qualified nurses through their preceptorship. Dedicated, ambitious and resilient, you’ll have a strong track record of delivering improvements to achieve quality care.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:
• Free learning and development
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
