ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Bank Peripatetic Nurse (RGN/RMN) at Barchester, you’ll travel across your region to deliver the high clinical standards we’re known for. We’ll look to you to lead a multi-disciplinary team to make sure that on each shift, at every location, all of our residents get the highest quality care. You can expect a wide range of responsibilities, from making sure new residents are settling in, to helping advance your team members’ skills, and developing care plans that are tailored to our residents’ physical and mental needs. As a Peripatetic Nurse, 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 Peripatetic Nurse, you’ll need to be a Registered Nurse (RGN/RMN) with a current NMC registration and a teaching, mentoring or supervision qualification. A strong, up-to-date clinical knowledge is important, as is a good understanding of key regulatory frameworks, including the safe administration of medicines, Royal Pharmaceutical guidelines, and NMC standards. We’ll also look for a successful track record of producing care plans and detailed risk assessments. Dedicated and ambitious, you’ll be able to lead by example – your can-do approach and excellent communication skills will motivate the teams in each Barchester care home you work with.
As well as competitive pay, you can look forward to a role that offers true flexibility and plenty of free learning and development opportunities. As one of the UK’s leading healthcare providers, we take the growth of everyone who works for us seriously.
As this is a Bank position to provide cover as and when we need it, such as for annual leave or sick leave, the hours and days you work will vary.
If you’d like to use your clinical and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding and empowering place to be.
