About the Role

As a Registered Nurse, you are responsible for providing nursing care that is safe, efficient and of the highest quality in accordance with best practice, professional standards, organisational standards and policy and procedure. 

Our Registered Nurses are accountable for ensuring all health services they provide are consistent with their education and assessed competence, meet legislative requirements and are supported by the appropriate standard.

You will work as part of a team in a peer-supported environment, where everyone wants to deliver great quality care to our residents and ensure they have a positive experience whilst living in our Homes.  We have day and afternoon shifts to cover, including one weekend day per week so get in touch and have a chat about what works for you.  

About You 

As well as a passion for the wellbeing of older people, you will be enthusiastic but patient and well organised with great interpersonal skills and sense of humour. You will share our values of empathy, compassion, and respect and operate with a person centred approach and high standards of quality care.

You will have great people skills, whether you are spending time with staff or residents, it's all about the way we communicate with each other and how we get the job done that counts and makes the difference to everyone's day.   

Along with excellent communication and a quality improvement focus, you will hold:

  • NZ Registered Nurse with current Annual Practising Certificate 
  • At least 1 years’ full time equivalent RN experience, provision of care to older adults is a bonus
  • Experience working in a sole charge role would be great, but it's not essential
  • Proof of Covid 19 vaccination status

About Us 

Our name, Enliven, is a celebration of our beginnings, our heritage and the values we share.   You will have the opportunity to share in our values based approach and be part of a not for profit service specialising in the support of older people.  

Most days, when you walk through the doors of Brightwater Home you’ll find a hive of activity.

The elders tell us they enjoy the fantastic social and activities calendar, the companionship and friendly banter and the sense of belonging that comes with this tight-knit community.

Come and be part of our team - we'd like to welcome you to our family!
