Careers


With just 15 beds, Lourdes Nursing Home is a unique and value-creating place to work. Its intimate setting encourages great working relationships between colleagues and a culture of care for all those who help support the home.

If you are looking for a caring, considerate and relaxed place to work then Lourdes may be the home for you.

Lourdes values all of its staff and takes pride in knowing them on a personal level and helping them in their career. Lourdes takes an active role in staff training and employees are encouraged to better themselves.

There is excellent staff support offered from both Anita’s management team and the Ursulines who help make the home the best it can be.

There is also the possibility of flexible working because Lourdes holds a ‘flexibank’ of staff, enabling work to fit around your daily life.   This could also make it a good second-job option, ideal if you are involved with hospital nursing.

Benefits include holiday pay, sick pay, pension and free meals*. All uniforms are also laundered onsite.
