Are you proud to care?
Do you want to make a real difference to someone's life?
Newcross Healthcare are seeking experienced Registered Nurses to provide life-enhancing care to our young service users living with additional healthcare needs in their own homes in Southampton, Totton, Hythe, Sholing and the surrounding local areas through our Southampton branch.
Working for Newcross is entirely flexible, work full or part time hours, flexibility with your rota to fit around your life, all with the security of a permanent job with guaranteed minimum 20 hours per week (or 1040 per year) in your contract, and rotas organised up to 4 weeks in advance.
As a Registered Nurse, you can access our exclusive Platinum Ticket Invitation, which means you'll receive a free uniform when you join our team, a free DBS check upfront and a £500 welcome bonus after your first 250 hours of work with Newcross*.
What can you expect from your Nursing role?
It is essential that you are dedicated to improving and supporting the quality of life everyone you encounter. Our nursing services mean that we put the user at the centre of everything we do. You must have a compassionate approach and be confident in your ability to provide life-enhancing nursing care that protects the dignity of the client and is in line with their personalised care plan.
You'll need to have excellent clinical skills, with a valid NCM pin number, and the confidence to work with clients independently and as part of a wider MDT team. Experience of medication administration within a nursing home setting and team leader skills are highly desirable.
