Newly qualified nurses considered (we offer preceptorship training)
The team at Eastlands provides care for young adults with complex physical needs including tracheostomy and ventilator care, Huntington’s disease and neurological disorders, and as one relative recently told us “We are happy with our relative’s care at Eastlands, he is vocal and smiley when we visit and all the staff are very caring”
As a Registered Nurse, you will be part of a team that is passionate about delivering quality care to those in our care, ensuring that our service users have the ability to make their own choices and assisting them in living as independently as possible.
About the job……
So, as a nurse within an Exemplar home, what will your role be? It will be varied but the main focus will be on delivering hands-on person centred care to our service users and will include:
- Acting as a named nurse
- Administering, reviewing and monitoring medications
- Assessing care needs
- Putting together care plans and reviewing them as and when necessary
- Supervising the care team to ensure that the shift runs smoothly and efficiently
- Promoting choice, independence, dignity and respect
We expect that you will be a first level nurse (RGN/RMN/RNLD) with a current PIN.
More importantly though, you’ll need to be passionate about what you do, and that means leading by example. You’ll need to be well organised, be able work on your own initiative and make decisions, whilst working collaboratively as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
You should be up to date with current evidence based practice and have a working knowledge of CQC Standards and Regulations.
What do we offer…..
Your first seven days will be spent in a classroom environment, where you’ll complete a comprehensive induction and training programme, designed to give you all the information that you’ll need before you start working in the home. In addition, once you start work in the home, your training will continue, we can train you in those elements that are specific to Eastlands, such as tracheostomy care so this provides you with an excellent opportunity to develop your skills.
Our homes offer a rewarding and stimulating working environment, where you will enjoy a varied role. ,
Working for an Exemplar home means that you‘ll have genuine prospects for career development, so whether your goal is to move into a more senior post or to simply improve your clinical skills, we can support you on your chosen career path.

Exemplar started life as a training company, helping a care home operator get to grips with an ever-increasing regulatory burden. We helped co-ordinate nursing adaptation courses for overseas nurses too.
Having all this knowledge at our fingertips, we quickly moved into care home operation, taking over 5 elderly care homes in need of some tlc. We still have these homes and they form the bedrock on which the rest has been built.
