Unit Leader - Nursing
We'll support you so you can support our residents.
Here at Excelcare Holdings, we believe in better. Better care for our residents, better ways of working as well as better opportunities for you. We create environments that feel relaxed, open and incredibly supportive and we'll make sure each of our homes has exactly what they need to make every single individual feel welcomed and settled. We're now looking for a passionate Care Leader to help make this possible.
One of your main priorities will be to champion a range of philosophies for residents - everything from privacy and dignity, through to independence and equal rights. You'll always work to a policy to help manage risks - organising staff rotas while keeping the emotional welfare of residents in mind. The role will also see you hold regular team meetings, identify training needs and implement on job coaching and in-house training.
You'll be keen to get involved in the re-evaluation of care needs, enabling residents to receive the services that will improve their quality of life. A real team player - you'll participate in the planning, implementation and management of new developments, meeting residents' changing needs.
To join, you'll need to be a Registered Nurse with valid Pin number, along with experience in elderly, residential and dementia care. Ideally, you'll have some dementia care training. With this background, you'll have a proven record of providing excellent care through skilled team management and development. You'll be sensitive, compassionate, considerate and forward-thinking. With excellent communication skills, you naturally inspire trust in others, form positive relationships and confidently talk to a range of people.
By joining us you'll become part of a talented, close-knit team and have the opportunity to give something back and truly make a difference.
