Clinical Nurse Manager

Lakeview, Leigh

Clinical Nurse Manager 
Location
:Leigh, WN7 5EY
Salary: £38,500 - £40,000 per annum (dependent on experience) 
Working Hours: This role will require you to work 2 x 12 hour shifts per week, with the rest of your 40 hour week being supernumerary. Alternative weekends required.

About the Home 

Lakeview  is a purpose-built, 30 bed service for adults with complex needs, divided into three 10-bed units (including two specialist bariatric bedroom suites). With expertise across a range of neuro-disabilities, mental ill-health, brain injury, stroke and early-onset dementia, at Lakeview the focus is on what matters to people. Our approach is about making sure people are at the centre of their care whilst involving other people who make a difference in the person’s life – family, friends and the community.

Our Clinical Nurse Managers play a key part in the daily running of the Specialist Care Centre, working closely with the Registered Manager, ensuring that the Specialist Care Centre runs effectively and efficiently and that the care provided is of the highest quality.  There will, of course, be times when you have to roll up your sleeves and deliver hands-on nursing and personal care but that’s the nature of the job, and it keeps your skills up to date.  
  
About the job……

Your role will be to support the Registered Manager in the day to day activities in the Specialist Care Centre, so this means that you will be involved in:

  • Managing the clinical and care teams
  • Carrying out pre-admission assessments
  • Conducting supervisions and appraisals
  •  Auditing, reviewing and updating care plans and medication records
  • Managing staffing levels, compiling rotas etc.
  • Assisting with staff training and development

About you…

You are well organised, able to make decisions and work on your own initiative whilst working collaboratively within a multi-disciplinary team. You will be up-to-date with current evidence-based practice and have a working knowledge of CQC standards and regulations.

Most importantly you are motivated by helping every individual, whether colleague or service user, to realise their full potential and be treated with dignity and respect.

What do we offer…
You will receive the training you need as soon as you join Exemplar. Your first two days will be spent completing a comprehensive induction and training programme, designed to give you all the information that you’ll need before you start working in the home. As an Exemplar Nurse you will then receive training on a continuing basis to help you build your clinical skills.

Your prospects for career development with Exemplar will be second to none because we support, nurture and develop all our staff. We recognise talent and commitment and promote from within.  Exemplar can support you on your chosen career path.
