Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) is a registered charity dedicated to the provision of hospice care for life limited children and their families from the South West.

We aim to recruit friendly and enthusiastic staff who are motivated to really make a difference to the lives of the children and families who visit us.

An exciting opportunity has arisen in our Care Management Team for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed children’s nurse with experience in palliative, end of life and bereavement care.

As a member of the Care Management Team at Little Harbour you will work with fellow Team Leaders to provide effective and supportive shift management seven days a week, ensuring the delivery of safe, high quality care to children and their families. You will provide line management support and case management leadership and advice to a named group of staff as well as children’s nursing expertise to the multi-disciplinary Care Team at the hospice.

You will have extensive post registration experience of nursing children with life-limiting/life threatening or chronic illnesses. You will also have proven managerial experience or the ability to demonstrate leadership and organisational skills.

Current registration as an RSCN/RN (Child) is essential, and a managerial qualification or further training in leadership and management is desirable. Evidence of on-going education and continuing development in children’s palliative care is also essential.

Children’s Hospice South West offers generous conditions of service and continuous professional training and development opportunities. Benefits include free on-site parking and a generous annual leave entitlement, and the chance to make a real difference to the lives of children with life limiting conditions and their families.
