Interested in a fulfilling career in dementia care, with ongoing support from Dementia UK, the specialist dementia nurse charity? 

 

We are looking for someone with a passion in dementia care to join our Admiral Nurse team. 

 

In collaboration with Dementia UK, the London Borough of Sutton are looking to recruit a registered Nurse (RN, RNMH, RNLD) to join our team as an Admiral Nurse to deliver relationship-centred dementia care to families across the London Borough of Sutton. 

 

Main duties

 

Admiral Nurses are registered nurses who are dementia specialists. They help families manage complex needs, considering the person living with dementia and the people around them. 

 

Under the supervision of the Admiral Nurse Team Lead and alongside two other Band 6Admiral Nurses, you will provide tailored clinical advice and psychological support to families affected by Dementia. You will also help to support best practice with other health and care professionals.

 

You will receive ongoing first class training and support from Dementia UK to maintain and strengthen your clinical expertise as a specialist nurse within dementia care. This interesting and rewarding area of nursing has a wide variety of opportunities to develop further skills and take your career in an exciting direction. 

 

You will become part of the wider network of Admiral Nurses and will have the opportunity to access relevant postgraduate courses and develop professionally, as informed by the Admiral Nurse Competency Framework.

 

About us

 

The Admiral Nursing Team aims to deliver a person-centred dementia care approach within Adult Social Care, in partnership with Dementia UK. Adult Social Care offers fantastic CPD opportunities and has a leading training programme. 

 

You’ll have the flexibility to work from our Sutton Offices, whilst on the move and at home and you’ll be entitled to a generous  annual leave package plus bank holidays, flexi-time, local and national discounts for shopping and leisure and much more. 

 

About you

 

Our Admiral Nurses are Registered Nurse’s (RN, RNMH, RNLD) with a passion for dementia care, alongside relevant post-registration clinical experience of supporting families affected by dementia. You do not need previous Admiral Nursing experience as full induction and ongoing training is provided internally and through partnerships.
