Reporting to the home manager, the Clinical Lead Nurse will be accountable for oversight and maintenance of the resident’s care ensuring their individual needs are adhered to at all times and being responsible for the day-to-day running of the care home in the absence of the home manager.
You will be a team player. Kindness will be second nature to you. You will have a keen eye for detail, always act with integrity and be driven by the principles of fairness. You will behave in a transparent manner always showing respect to our residents, their families and your colleagues. You will be a nurse with previous clinical leadership experience. In previous roles, you will have been in charge of individual shifts delegating duties to nurses and care staff. You will also have previous experience of assisting in the development of colleagues either through supervision or mentorship plus previous experience providing nursing care in an elderly and dementia setting.
