About Exemplar Health Care:

We have over 20 years of experience providing exceptional specialist nursing care for adults living with complex and high acuity needs. We started our journey as a training company, and have grown into one of the country’s leading providers of adult specialist care, with over 35 complex needs care homes in England. 

Our vision is that adults living with complex needs can access outstanding specialist care and support, in a community-based home that’s close to their family and friends, and that focuses on their personal goals and outcomes.  Our person-centred care is the bedrock for maximising independence, building everyday living skills and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible. 

Our mission is to make every day better for the people we support and our colleagues.  We’re proud of the culture that we’ve created at Exemplar Health Care, which is underpinned by our vision, mission and values.

About Woolston House:

Woolston House is a specialist care service that supports people living with complex and high acuity needs. The home will have four units which will specialise in supporting adults with complex mental health needs, neuro disabilities and physical disabilities.

About the Role:

As a Clinical Nurse Manager, you’ll play a key role in the daily running of your specialist care home.

You’ll work closely with the Registered Manager to ensure that the home runs effectively and efficiently, and that the care provided is of the highest quality.

As Clinical Nurse Manager, you’ll lead a team of Unit Managers, Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants to ensure that we meet the medical, physical and emotional needs of our service users.

You’ll be responsible for providing strong leadership to drive continuous improvement and enhance the standard of daily living for the service users in your home.

There will be times when you have to roll up your sleeves and deliver hands-on nursing care, but that’s the nature of the job, and it keeps your skills up-to-date. 

We’re looking for someone who is well organised, can work under their own initiative as well as part of a multidisciplinary team, and is up-to-date with current evidence-based clinical practice.

This is a great opportunity for a senior Registered Nurse who wants to progress into a management role.
