Our Clinical Nurse Managers play a key part in the daily running of the Specialist Care Centre, working closely with the Registered Managers, ensuring that the Specialist Care Centre runs effectively and efficiently and that the care provided is of the highest quality.

Most importantly you are motivated by helping every individual, whether colleague or service user, to realise their full potential and be treated with dignity and respect.
What do we offer…
You will receive the training you need as soon as you join Exemplar. Your first two days will be spent completing a comprehensive induction and training programme, designed to give you all the information that you’ll need before you start working in the home.
