Deputy Team Lead

If you’re looking for a rewarding career in the community that allows you to deliver high quality, patient-focused care while leading a dynamic and mutually supportive team, you’re in the right place!

CLCH Hertfordshire Division covers the 4 localities of West Hertfordshire, delivering care across the population. We are an innovative divisional team who are always looking to grow and develop our staff and service, and pride ourselves on focusing on staff wellbeing as well as delivering high quality patient focused care.

We are setting up a new team to deliver care for residential homes across three of our four geographical localities – Hertsmere, St Albans and Harpenden and Watford - to improve continuity and enable the residential homes and staff within CLCH to feel well supported and able to deliver excellent care.

As a Band 6 Deputy Team Lead, you will be responsible for caseload managing the care of patients within residential homes within a geographical locality. You will line manage a small group of Band 5s, 4s, and 3s, ensuring that you nurture them to continue to be autonomous, skilled practitioners. You need to have strong assessment skills and will be well supported clinically, with a dedicated Band 7 nurse for the team, good access to Practice Development Nurses and link nurses aligned to the team to enable you to grow professionally, and encouraged to participate in numerous training opportunities provided by the CLCH Academy Team. There will be a requirement to work 1 in 4 weekends, and to work across the geographical locality depending on service need. The core hours of the service are 8am-6pm 7 days per week. The role will involve travel between homes and across the localities, occasionally assisting the other teams with visits in patients’ own homes, so access to a car for work purposes and a full driving license is essential.

If you want to work with strong, supportive teams who have a real emphasis on listening to clinicians and are an experienced nurse wanting to progress in a leadership role, we would recommend you make your application to us.
