The service is a fun innovative diverse nursing home with a difference! Are you ready to take the next step in your career?

This purpose built service in Leeds is going to become home for up to 30 service users but will not have the traditional nursing home feel.  The unique layout means that staff can care for adults with a vast array of complex mental and physical health needs and associated challenging behaviours.

Our client is now seeking a highly motivated Senior RMN /RNLD or RGN with a passion and desire to make a difference! They aim to deliver person centred and outcome focused care and strive to help those service users who are able to transition away from nursing care and back to community living. Their service users may have complex needs and as a valued member of staff you will have so much support and guidance from our Behavioural Support Team, our in House Quality Assurance team, the Clinical Nurse Manager and other in house teams so the rewards will far outweigh the challenges.

Being at the forefront of clinical care delivery you will be responsible in providing strong leadership to develop and improve the standard of daily living. You will be empowered to really make a difference and the nursing home size means you have sufficient time in a day to make a real difference to the lives of those in your care.

You will lead the nurse team during your shifts; you will make certain that we fully meet medical, physical and emotional requirements of adults in your care. Ensuring compliance with our clinical governance framework, you will mentor and motivate colleagues, champion safety and dignity and drive continuous improvement.

As an integral and appreciated member of the team you will be entitled to the following benefits:
Free uniform
Free car parking
Paid enhanced DBS check
Refer a Friend scheme - Up to £1,500*
Full 4 days paid induction
Plus lots of other company benefits and perks 

The ideal candidate:
You will be a registered nurse RMN/RNLD/RGN and will have a valid NMC pin.
You will provide warmth, enthusiasm and compassion when providing care.
You will always strive to provide great quality holistic care, making every day better than the last; promoting our core values: maintaining independence and dignity.
As with all our employees, you will be expected to work within our staff values and use these at all times by being an effective communicator and being passionate about your work.
Working alongside staff teams you will be a team player by coaching and mentoring junior staff, demonstrating outstanding communication skills with a positive and supportive attitude within a multi-disciplined team. 
You’ll be up to date with current evidence based practice and have a working knowledge of CQC Standards and Regulations and will work using your initiative making effective decisions to improve care quality.
