You can be that lifeline of care for Haven House children and families.

Join our passionate team of Haven House Nurses (Band 6) where you can be part of something extraordinary.

The demand for the outstanding care Haven House provides is increasing and more vital than ever. We need you to help us deliver our care to families who so desperately need us during the most difficult of times. Our Nurses are privileged to spend precious time with babies, children, young people and their families. We need your expertise to provide compassionate care and create special memories.

As a valued member of the clinical care team, you will join a unique and vibrant team providing symptom management, palliative and end-of-life care, as well as planned and emergency short breaks both at the hospice and in the community.

As a Haven House Senior Nurse, you will support the wider team to ensure high standards of holistic care are delivered. In return, we will support your wellbeing and offer you a learning environment to develop your skills and competencies in paediatric palliative care, supported by our Nurse Practice Educator.

This role is based at our beautiful woodland hospice in Woodford Green, offering free parking and easy access from the Central line.

To be able to support families to be together in those last precious days is immensely important to me. Giving children and their families choice and being able to provide a caring and compassionate environment is why I work at Haven House.” (Aisling, Haven House nurse)

“A children’s hospice is all about providing wonderful care to children and their families and creating special memories.”

When I saw the advert for nurses on the Haven House website, I applied straight away knowing that I was coming to a place where I can learn from colleagues about how to deliver an exceptional service and be the nurse that I always wanted to be.” (Anne, Haven House nurse)

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all our staff to share this commitment. Employment is subject to receipt of satisfactory references and an enhanced DBS check.
