Live In Nursing Jobs
the perfect time to start your career as a live in Nurse
Do you long for a return to one-to-one nursing? Do you enjoy the companionship and rewards that come from providing Live-in Nursing care? If so, then a Live-in Nursing career with Consultus might be exactly what you are looking for.
The Live-in Nursing Role
Our dedicated Live-in Nurses look after clients who have chosen to receive social care in the comfort of their own home, rather than in a nursing or care home. As part of our nursing team, you will be living with clients for up to two weeks at a time to provide them with the nursing care they require. You will be having a huge impact on the quality of life of your clients and will be providing nursing care for respite, post-surgical, rehabilitation, long-term medical conditions and palliative/end of life needs.
We have such a high demand for Live-in Nurses that we have vacancies throughout the UK for both full-time and part-time nursing roles, offering you flexibility over the location of your assignments. For many nurses, private nursing is a new challenge which offers them the opportunity to improve their work-life balance and gain greater control over their time.
Placements normally range from 4 to 14 days. For our long-term clients, we prefer to offer continuity of care with the same nurses rotating on a two-weekly cycle. This enhances the development of the relationship between our nurses and their clients, enabling the clients to feel more comfortable and secure, with improved health outcomes. Our two-week placement limit also makes it easier for our nurses to plan their time off.
What we are looking for?
We take great care when it comes to hiring Live-in Nurses and Live-in Carers to join our team. We look closely at the attitudes and approach to work of applicants, as well as their qualifications and previous experience as a healthcare professional. A caring, compassionate nature, reliability, commitment, flexibility and excellent interpersonal skills are all vital attributes for a Live-in Nursing career.
We understand that many clients come to us for care at a highly emotional time for them and their families. Our Nurses are expected to be able to assist with both the practical aspects of daily life and the emotional support required. As such experience in mental health nursing would be beneficial.
Live-in Nursing requirements:
- An NMC registered nurse
- A minimum of 3 years post-registration clinical work in a variety of settings, including community and critical hospital care.
- Right to work in the UK (we do not apply for or sponsor work permits)
