Careers

Being a nurse or a carer is not a job – it’s a vocation. It can provide you with tremendous job satisfaction and also flexibility. But you need to be the right kind of person; genuinely caring, respectful and interested in people – particularly in elderly people and the lives they have led. They have lots of memories and stories to tell, and most love the opportunity to reminisce.

Here at Iden Manor we pride ourselves on having the very best nurses and carers. Our commitment to excellence, favourable employment terms and – arguably above everything else – sense of extended family which runs very deep, all encourage a good team spirit and it is clear that our staff enjoy working here. As a result, retention and absence levels are consistently below the national average – which speaks volumes.

What we look for

Caring attitude:

Respectful and genuinely interested in people – who they are, what they’ve done, what they like.

Relevant experience:

Either as a nurse or a carer, which may have involved looking after dependent relatives. Babysitting and volunteering experience is also useful. In reality though, if you really want to be a carer and we see in you the right attitude then we can train you in the skills needed to deliver excellent care, and set you up in a career with lifelong value.

Relevant qualifications:

All our nurses must be NMC registered. For carers or health care assistants, formal qualifications are not essential as training will be given.

Demeanour:

Cheerful, positive, patient, encouraging, happy, enthusiastic – we don’t bring our problems into work with us!

References:

Positive references will be required and we will need to undertake police checks.

It does take a very special person to be a nurse, carer or work in a care setting and not everyone has the qualities needed. It can be physically and emotionally demanding, but it can also be an incredibly rewarding career on so many levels.

If you think you have the qualities needed to be an Iden Manor nurse or carer, and you believe that you could thrive in the environment described here, then we would love to hear from you.

It doesn’t take long for people to fit in… it’s a bit like children starting at a new school!
