We’re looking for a senior nurse to join our strong clinical team and become a valued part of the senior decision-making process in our home, Whitecliffe House in Blandford.
You’ll work with fellow Nurses and Senior Care Leads, as well as the local multi-disciplinary teams, with 24/7 on-call support available to you from other Colten Care Clinical/ Quality experts. You’ll be responsible for leading the shift and the allocation of duties to other nurses and the care team. You’ll build lasting relationships with our residents and make a meaningful difference to their health and wellbeing every day.
You’ll have excellent clinical knowledge and sound judgement, with great communications skills, able to lead with a “can-do” attitude.
