Whatever your background and experience, we offer lots of different career opportunities so that you can use your skills to make a difference to the lives of adults living with complex needs.

In 2022, Exemplar Health Care promises to be an exciting company to work for, so if you’re looking for a new role or a career change this year, here are five reasons to join us!

Our learning and development opportunities are second to none

There are lots of opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge with us and progress in your career at Exemplar Health Care.

Your learning starts on day one! When you join us, you’ll do a corporate welcome induction which includes learning about the company and our values, and completing training relevant to your role.

Following the corporate welcome induction, you'll do a role-specific induction in your new workplace and meet your buddy who'll support you in your first few weeks. New colleagues in care roles will complete the Care Certificate as part of their induction (if you’re new to care).

From there, you can apply for one of our many in-house training programmes which include:

  • ABC of Caring
  • People Management Skills
  • Effective Manager Series
  • Leadership and Management Programme
  • Talent Management Programme.

We also offer a range of apprenticeships, at all levels, for colleagues who want to gain a formal qualification whilst earning and learning on-the-job.

When you work with us, you get exclusive access to our online Wellbeing Centre which has tips, blogs and tools around the topics of munch, move, money and mind.

We ensure that our colleagues always have someone to talk to. Each of our care homes has a trained Mental Health First Aider who you can talk to about your mental health.

You can also access our Employee Assistance Programme which gives you 24/7 support from trained counsellors.
