Verve Health are a leading Healthcare Staffing Organisation based in Manchester, covering the Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Liverpool and London areas.

We are looking for caring, driven and dedicated individuals to provide cover relief for our partnership organisations in Buxton. You will be fully trained to deliver care to the highest possible standards, as well as receiving ongoing mentorship from our Management Team.

Working on a ‘you choose your own shifts’ basis, you will be able to choose which days you work and which days you take off! No pressure and perfect for those with busy schedules and University or Childcare commitments.

You can work full-time or part-time, it’s completely up to you!

Providing mental and emotional support

Assisting with activities of daily living

Personal care

Ensuring safety and wellbeing of patients

Providing companionship

Promoting independence

Be a key part of multi-disciplinary teams

How does it work?

If successful, you will be invited into our office for a coffee and an interview. After that, we’ll put you through a DBS check and enroll you onto our training programme. Once you’ve completed your training, you will be given a log-in to our app where you can pick and choose which shifts you’d like to do! Our aim is to make sure we give an opportunity to become one of our specialists to anyone who is willing to provide high-quality care, regardless of their availability.

What else do we offer?

– You can undertake your NVQ Level 2 or 3 in Health and Social Care – completely free of charge!

– We have an Open Office in the center of Manchester – which means you can pop in for a catch up whenever you like

– Additional Training – if you find an area that interests you, we will equip you with additional training and resources to develop your skills

– No Pressure! – We know a lot of Healthcare is based around pressuring people into availability so we do the opposite – you choose whenever you want to work and we’ll find you a shift.

What do I need?

– A caring nature, a desire to make a difference and dedication.

– Experience of working within nursing/care homes (at least 6 months)

What should I include in my application?

– Put as much information about your experiences into your CV as possible, even if not healthcare related, we want to know all about you!
