Job Title: Senior Nurse
Location: West Midlands, Birmingham
Salary: £16.00 per hour
Job role: Full time, Permanent - 42 hours per week
We are a 30 bed home which provides care for young adults with complex physical needs, including Huntington's disease and neurological disorders.
We recognise that being a nurse is at the heart of what you do - so you'll be able to keep your skills and experience up to date but, as a Senior Nurse/Unit Manager, you'll also have the opportunity to use and develop your management abilities.
About the job
On a day to day basis, you'll have responsibility for clinical matters, people and general management duties. Whilst you'll still be delivering hands-on nursing care, you'll also be involved with:
- Conducting pre-admission assessments, assessing client care requirements
- Providing safe and effective means for the ordering, handling, storage, administration, recording and disposal of drugs
- Ordering clinical supplies to budget, ensuring safe storage, stock rotation and usage
- Reviewing and documenting care plans on a regular basis
- Participating in an on-call system to support the nurse in charge
- Deputising for the Registered Home Manager where necessary
We expect that you will be a first level nurse (RGN/RMN/RNLD) with a current PIN. You should be up to date with current evidence based practice and have a working knowledge of CQC Standards and Regulations. You'll probably have had some supervisory experience previously, combined with a couple of years nursing experience.
You'll have great communication and leadership qualities to ensure that the unit runs effectively and efficiently, delivering a high standard of clinical care.
What do we offer
Your first seven days will be spent in a classroom environment, where you'll complete a comprehensive induction and training programme, designed to give you all the information that you'll need before you start working in the home.
Our homes offer a rewarding and stimulating working environment, where you will enjoy a varied role.
Working for our home means that you'll have genuine prospects for career development. We have a City & Guilds centre which offers a variety of QCF qualifications, as well as a tailor made management development programme, to help you to achieve your goal, whether you want to climb the career ladder to Deputy Manager or enhance your clinical skills, we can support you.
