ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Senior Nurse (Mental Health) at a Barchester care home, you'll use your leadership skills to deliver the quality care and support we're known for. We'll look to you to be a hands-on clinical leader who provides expertise on mental health to our multi-disciplinary team. You'll create a safe and supportive environment where our residents with a range of mental and physical needs are always treated with dignity and respect. Your professional judgement will be used to make critical clinical decisions, from assessing the needs of a new resident to administrating medicines in line with NMC regulations. As part of your wide range of responsibilities, you'll support and mentor your team to deliver the highest standards of nursing. As a Senior Nurse specialising in mental health, you'll have the freedom and autonomy to do things the right way - and be truly valued and respected for what you do.
To join us as a Senior Nurse (Mental Health), you'll need to be a Registered Nurse (RMN) with a current NMC registration and a mentor or supervision qualification. Experience of delivering excellent care to residents with dementia, producing care plans and detailed risk assessments is important. We'll also look for an up-to-date knowledge on the most recent clinical practices and regulatory frameworks, including DoLs/MCA and Royal Pharmaceutical guidelines. You'll be a natural leader and problem solver who has worked with older people and 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
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Nurse Mentor and Refer a Friend bonus schemes
• Offer to pay Tier 2 visa application fee for eligible nurses
If you'd like to use your clinical and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you'd want for your loved ones, this is a rewarding and empowering place to be.
