We value our employees and put people first. We will provide you with an excellent working environment that has just been recognised with a ‘Good’ rating overall, and as an ‘Outstanding’, well-led, organisation in our latest CQC inspection, which found that: ‘Managers across Berkshire Healthcare promoted a positive culture that supported and valued staff, creating a sense of common purpose based on shared values.’

We are pioneers in compassionate leadership and Quality Improvement, which is about creating a culture where everyone has a voice and where service users and staff collaborate to have a direct impact on the things that matter most.

About you:

You are an enthusiastic and experienced nurse, with a warm personality, and excellent communication and people skills. Willing to undertake relevant training, you will have leadership experience and be able to demonstrate innovative practice. Supporting colleagues in the delivery of compassionate, safe and structured care, you will be enthusiastic to share your knowledge with our multi-disciplinary team, staff from external agencies, volunteers, patients and carers. Proactive, you will be dedicated to ensuring that patients and their loved ones experience a seamless service. An empathetic advocate for patients, you will ensure that they are supported in their preferences, that their dignity is maintained, and that their social, cultural and spiritual needs are met. Working flexibly in response to service need, you will enjoy working across multiple sites and have access to your own car. Your energy and drive will be rewarded with the support of a dedicated team that strives to create a progressive, friendly and considerate environment.
