TIME Recruitment is currently working with a nationally renowned health & social care provider in selecting a Nurse Unit Manager (qualified nurse RGN/RMN/RNLD) to join the management team at an Inspectorate compliant elderly care home in Edinburgh.

---THE ROLE---
As a Nurse Unit Manager, you will play a leading role in the provision of top-class care and support to residents within your unit. You will supervise nursing and care staff, monitoring performance on a regular basis and keeping on top of rotas. Knowledge of safeguarding procedures and a keen understanding of CQC standards will be crucial to your success in the role. Possessing a keen interest in elderly and/or dementia care would be highly beneficial.

Working closely with the Home Manager, this position offers a fantastic opportunity for any ambitious nurse looking to progress.

Our client has a large number of services throughout Scotland and the UK and can offer realistic progression pathways for Nurse Unit Managers looking to progress into Deputy, Home or Senior Management.

Our client offers a thorough induction programme, supported by on-going training and professional development. For nurses looking to progress, our client is large enough to offer ample progression opportunities, along with specialist training in areas like dementia and palliative care.

The induction process is extremely thorough and you will receive a week of classroom training before going on to the nursing floor in the home. You will also be encouraged to progress through formal management qualifications should you wish to develop further.

This role is offering a competitive salary of £34,500 to the successful candidate. This is supplemented by the following additional benefits:

- generous matched pension contributions
- NMC/DBS costs paid
- free uniform
- a range of discounts with major retailers
- access to high quality, extensive induction and continuing training
- access to private health & dental care
