We at Willowbrook House value our staff, whether professional nursing staff or support staff and believe in the recognition and development of both individual and team skills, providing training, resources and on-going support. We aim to provide the best quality care to the highest standard possible and to this end we are looking to recruit high calibre, highly motivated and dedicated staff at all levels over the next 6 to 12 months.

  • Qualified Nursing Staff: Are you either an RGN or RMN with either elderly Care or EMI experience, ideally in the independent sector.
  • Care Assistants: Do you have experience in either elderly care or EMI. We are looking to recruit Care Assistants with experience in the above that are able to work as part of a highly motivated team and provide quality care in a friendly, caring atmosphere. Ideally you will have NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care, but if we consider you suitable to join our team we will provide opportunity for development to NVQ Level 2.
  • Support Staff: As part of the overall caring team within the home we are also looking to recruit Domestic and laundry staff.

Overseas Nursing Program: The programme has been designed in accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) requirements and to meet the needs of Overseas Nurses who wish to gain registration with NMC. The course provides through a combination of study days and clinical practice for the compulsory 20 day period of protected learning required by those nurses trained outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
