We would like to encourage applications, which meet the criteria for the job vacancy, from the following under-represented groups: Black, Asian and other ethnic minorities (BAME), LGBTQIA+, Disabled or those with Long Term Health Conditions. We are launching Colleague Resource Groups to help us achieve our mission ‘to make every day better’ not just for our service users but for our colleagues too.

Would you like to join a new, innovative care team that specialises in providing high-quality, person-centred care to people with complex conditions, which may include mental health and neurological needs? Do you value training and development, ongoing support and working with a team who live their values daily to make ‘every day better’ for those in our care?

Wykewood is a new specialist nursing facility, located in Wyke close to Bradford and Leeds, which opened in June 2021. We have 40 ensuite bedrooms, complemented with therapy rooms, spacious communal areas and attractive landscaped gardens. 

We operate a multi-disciplinary model of care, which includes Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, and access to a full behavioural support team. We provide active rehabilitation, community integration, and a high quality of supported living for those who reside with us. We are certainly not your average service, as you will note the second you step through our doors. 

We are currently seeking Registered Nurses to join our team. 

If you are passionate about providing high-quality care that makes a difference, team work and supporting your colleagues, and achieving the very best you can, then we would love to hear from you. 

This is an excellent opportunity for registered nurses who wish to develop their career, learn new skills and be part of a very welcoming team.
