Could you support carers and other professionals working in care homes and social care by delivering palliative and end of life care (EOLC) education?

Would you like to help sustain a learning culture that supports wider dissemination of the knowledge and skills learnt, through identifying champions and end of life care leaders within the teams and services?
Are you looking for a part-time role offering a better work-life balance?
If you’ve answered yes to the questions above and you are passionate about identifying, developing and delivering palliative care education to care home and social care staff within our locality, we would love to hear from you.

We now have an exciting new permanent part-time role available in our Professional Development team and we’re looking for a committed, compassionate and caring person to join us.

As a Care Home Educator you will provide a multi-professional education programme which is responsive to the needs of care home/ social care staff to enable provision of good assessment, symptom management and end of life care.
You will be based at our office in Tring, but may be required to travel across the Rennie Grove catchment area (Buckinghamshire/ west Hertfordshire) so a car and driving licence will be essential.

To be successful in the role you’ll need to be a First Level Registered nurse and have:

• a degree (or equivalent) in a relevant field of practice
• a qualification in palliative care or relevant experience in end of life care nursing
• experience of identifying, developing and delivering clinical training
• knowledge of CQC requirements and quality needs for care homes

The following will be particularly helpful:

• a recognised teaching qualification
• experience of community/ care home nursing
• experience of mentoring and developing staff in the clinical field

22.5 hours per week, flexible working opportunities available.

We offer development, flexible working, opportunities to volunteer and 27 days’ (pro rata) holiday per year plus bank holidays.

At Rennie Grove Hospice Care, we’re all about making every moment matter for our patients and families, and you can play your part in that. We provide care and support for adults and children diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illness, and their families. It’s important work and, to make it all happen, we need talented and passionate people.

Are you ready to make a difference? Apply on
