In this full time nurse team leader role, you'll join a well-established and supportive team at a homely, residential care home in Bedminster, Bristol. You'll support seven individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities at home and in the community.
You'll get to build relationships with the individuals you support, play a big part in improving the quality of their lives and see the results of your support. There are no waking nights and full-time and part-time hours are available.
You will be supported with your CPD and Revalidation, your learning needs and clinical practice through training, an internal clinical network and external networks. You can also undertake study for further qualifications and if you're newly qualified there is a preceptorship programme.

You'll also ensure that individuals receive health care and treatment consistent with their Health Action Plan and Care Plans.
