The organisation needs to expand its team of dedicated and committed nurses to ensure the highest quality of care for those coming into its care homes with more complex needs. Six posts need to be filled immediately, but the organisation is always looking for nurses interested in long-term career opportunities.
Cornwall Care will be holding a special recruitment event in Launceston on January 17th between 2pm and 8pm, where people can apply for a job and be interviewed on the same day.
Most of the jobs will be based at Cedar Grange, a purpose-built, 60-bed residential home in Launceston, although other positions may be available across the county, including at Athelstan in Bodmin and Chyvarhas in Callington. Various shifts are available for Registered Mental Health Nurses, Registered General Nurses and Preceptees (those newly qualified).
Douglas Webb, Chief Executive of Cornwall Care, said: “We are delighted to be able to create new jobs as this means we are continuing to grow our services at a time when others are struggling and we are looking forward to strengthening our team of nurses in order to make our quality of care better than ever.
“Investment in the care of older people is one of our top priorities, and we urgently need nurses to join our fantastic team of carers. We are particularly looking for nurses who would like to begin the New Year with a new, long-term career. Forming lasting relationships with clients is one of the many joys of working in our care homes, and something which our nurses take great pride in.”
Nurses attending the unique recruitment event at Cedar Grange will be given a guided tour of the home, job applications can be accepted on the day and interviews can take place there and then. Cornwall Care will endeavour to get back to applicants within a few days.
Working for Cornwall Care offers many benefits, including a family-friendly working environment and renowned training and development opportunities.
