NURSES are being offered a £5000 welcome bonus to join a Lancashire care home.

Exemplar Health Care, a national care operator, is giving the bonus on nursing roles at its Ribble View care home on Church Avenue in Preston.

Ribble View is currently looking to hire nurses to support younger adults living with complex needs.

The nurse role with the specialist care provider involves assessing people’s care needs, delivering person-centred nursing care for people living with complex needs and leading a small care team.

There are a range of roles available including registered nurses (RMN, RGN and RNLD) and senior nurses (unit managers).

Ribble View supports up to 30 adults living with complex mental health needs and neuro-disabilities.

The home’s high staffing levels and higher than average nurse ratio are what Exemplar Health Care believes make the roles stand out.

Ribble View has, on average, six Health Care Assistants to every Nurse, based on each ten-bed unit. This gives Nurses the time to really make a difference and get to know the people in their care.

As well as the £5000 welcome bonus, successful applicants get access to a range of rewards and benefits including retail and lifestyle discounts, an Employee Assistance Programme, car salary sacrifice scheme and access to wages before payday through fastPAYE.

Exemplar Health Care also offers excellent career development and progression for nurses, with five of its in-house training programmes being certificated by the CPD Certification Service.

Shannon O’Dea, Home Manager at Ribble View, shares: “We are delighted to offer an enhanced welcome bonus for nurses at Ribble View.

“We already have a fantastic, close-knit care team and we are looking to bring people on board who share the same values and commitment to provide the very best care for our residents.

“Upon joining our team, you will receive full training as part of your induction and will be supported by a buddy during your first few weeks. There are plenty of opportunities to build your career and progress in the company if you wish. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.”
