Care home offers nurses £5,000 severance pay for nurses

NURSES are being offered a £5,000 welcome bonus to join a Lancashire care home.

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

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

The role of the nurse with the specialty care provider includes assessing the care needs of individuals, providing person-centred nursing care to individuals 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 neurological conditions.

The home’s high staffing levels and above-average nursing ratio are what Exemplar Health Care says sets the roles apart.

Ribble View has, on average, six orderlies for every nurse, based on every ten-bed unit. This gives nurses time to really make a difference and get to know the people they care for.

In addition to the £5,000 welcome bonus, successful applicants have access to a range of rewards and benefits, including retail and lifestyle discounts, an employee assistance program, a car pay sacrifice program and pre-payday pay access via fastPAYE.

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

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

“We already have a fantastic and close-knit care team and we are looking to recruit people who share the same values ​​and the same commitment to providing the best care for our residents.

“By joining our team, you will receive comprehensive training as part of your integration and will be accompanied by a buddy during your first weeks. There are plenty of opportunities to build your career and advance in the business if you wish. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.”
