About us:

At Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice we care for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions. We are support around 300 families both in our hospice and in family homes.

Our support services are wide ranging and bespoke to each family including end of life treatment and care, respite short breaks, counselling, sibling support groups, music therapy, home visits and much much more. It costs more than £5m to keep our doors open for families across South Yorkshire and beyond. We receive around 15% of our funding from government sources.

The role:

In expanding our care services, we are seeking an additional Care Administrator to join our friendly and experienced team. The role involves providing administrative support for our Care Leadership Team, maintaining accurate care records, supporting referral and allocation processes and most importantly being a first point of contact for children and families accessing the hospice.

From 1st April 2022 all direct care provision and/or close contact roles at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice require full COVID vaccination as a Condition of Deployment. The role of Care Administrator falls into this category.

The requirements:

To fulfil the role effectively you will be an organised and caring person, with excellent attention to detail and able to work flexibly and collaboratively across the care services.

You will ideally have experience of working in an environment with children and families who have complex needs but this is not essential.

In return, we can offer you a fantastic working environment and the following benefits:

  • 33 days’ annual leave with the option to buy and sell
  • Sick pay
  • Health Care Cash Back Scheme
  • Free counselling sessions
  • Enhanced maternity pay
  • Enhanced paternity pay
  • Enhanced parental bereavement leave
  • Compassionate leave

  • Volunteering & shadowing days
  • Free parking on main site
  • Free drinks and subsidised meals
  • Time off in lieu
  • Uniform
  • Eligible for NHS Blue Light Card
  • Eligible for The Company Shop

At Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice we value everyone who works with us, embrace individual differences and recognise that great things happen when we work together.
