Clinical Nurse Manager

(lead nurse, clinical services manager, head nurse, senior nurse, matron)

Marmaduke Street, Hull

Salary: up to £39,780 per annum                   

We are looking for an experienced Clinical Nurse Manager to join our team to deliver outstanding Specialist Nurse-led care for adults with complex needs.                

The Clinical Nurse Manager plays a key part in the daily running of the home, working closely with the Home Manager, ensuring that the home runs effectively and efficiently and that the care provided is of the highest quality. Excellent leadership skills are essential for this role as you will be visible on the unit throughout the working day, observing, monitoring and advising the qualified nurse on duty, providing feedback on good practice and creating a learning culture. You will also monitor staff performance against policy and embed clinical supervisions.

About the home

Our brand new care home is arguably one of the most fabulous homes in the area and supports up to 18 adults with complex needs. There is excellent career development and the unique opportunity to be part of a team where you can make every day better.

Marmaduke wants highly motivated nurses with a passion and desire to make a difference! We aim to deliver person centred and outcome focused care and strive to help those service users who are able to transition away from nursing care and back to community living.

As a Clinical Nurse Manager at Marmaduke, you will be empowered and the nursing home size means you have sufficient time in a day to make a real difference to the lives of those in your care.

The unique layout at Marmaduke means that we can care for adults with a vast array of complex mental and physical health needs and associated behaviours of concern. This could include mental health conditions, dementia, neurological conditions and physical disabilities. 

Responsibilities include:

Provide a visible presence on the units, allowing staff, service users and family to raise issues and insights, be listened to and responded to in an engaging manner.

Using a supportive and devolved management approach, ensure that nurses and unit managers are supported to an appropriate level in the development of their teams and their service. 

Ensure that clinical practice is developed and delivered by staff based on evidence-based research and recognised clinical philosophy, models and frameworks.

Demonstrate that clinical practice is underpinned by clear clinical theory and based on an eclectic mix of therapeutic tools and intervention strategies.

Organise and supervise nursing and care staff to safely deliver care, promoting at all times the high standards expected by Exemplar Health Care.

Develop and sustain positive long-term relationships with families, friends and visitors, along with other professionals visiting the service. Maintain regular communication with care co-ordinators, commissioners and other referral partners.

Recognise the importance of correct staffing levels, report any shortfalls to the Registered Home Manager and assist in the effective cover of the service for short-notice staff absence and sickness.

Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the CQC five domains, KLOE framework and particular knowledge of ratings for Good and Outstanding.
