Our client has complex care needs, and it will be the Team Leader’s responsibility to ensure that the support team provides effective care that is based on empathy, respect and compassion. You will write care plans and undertake risk assessments. You will be expected to supervise the support workers and train up new staff members in relation to complex skills, ensuring a high standard of competent care is being delivered.

You will be responsible for the day-to-day smooth running of the care provision which will include organising suitable rotas, supervising new staff members, and ensuring that all medications and medical supplies are ordered in a timely fashion.

You will liaise with the wider multidisciplinary team to ensure that our client maintains his health and progresses his independence within his given abilities.

You will be expected to develop a professional relationship with our client’s parents and ensure that they have time to remain as parents rather than being a required part of his care.

Working hours: 35 hours per week, Monday to Friday, to suit the needs of the client.

We require an NMC Registered Level 1 Nurse (either paediatric or adult), qualified for 1+ years.
