Nurse Unit Manager at Exemplar Health Care Services Limited (Visa sponsorship)

Exemplar Health Care Services Limited are looking to add a Nurse Unit Manager to their team of professionals. If you possess the requisite skills and meet the requirements, your application is highly welcome.

Established in 1999, we’ve developed a range of health and care services for adults living with complex needs arising from dementia, learning disabilities, neuro-disabilities including brain injuries, mental health conditions and physical disabilities.

Through our values of fun, integrity, success, responsiveness and teamwork, we’re proud of the outcomes we enable people to achieve.

At Exemplar Health Care, our care is different. Our 50+ care homes provide welcoming and supportive Nurse-led environments for those whose needs are often ‘too complex’ for mainstream care providers and who may have experienced one or more failed placements.

The people we support would often be in a hospital or higher acuity setting if not placed with us. Our care enables them to stay in the community and reduces hospital and secures facility admission.
