As one of the local leading providers of palliative and end of life care, St Andrew’s Hospice is a highly successful and forward thinking charity, offering both adult and children’s services. With an excellent reputation both in the local community and beyond, we reach over 800 patients and their families in North East Lincolnshire and our wider catchment area of Lincolnshire, Hull and East Yorkshire for our children’s services.

Working for Andy’s offers a very rewarding career with a fantastic team, with 170 Hospice staff, a large well-equipped Hospice site and 19 charity shops working together to ensure that patients and their families have the best possible experience and receive the highest quality of care.

We will also be launching our new Hospice at Home Service, delivering home-based short breaks for vulnerable children, young people and their families from Hull, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. In addition, we will be delivering a programme of activities based at the hospice and across the region, promoting patient wellbeing and maximising the support we provide our families.

We are looking for a committed, passionate and creative individual to set up and drive this service, promoting the highest standards of patient care. RN (C) preferred but applications considered from RGNs with significant relevant experience with palliative care and community experience preferred.

You must be able to work as an autonomous practitioner as well as part of a team. A commitment to a multidisciplinary approach is essential, alongside the ability to be self-reflective whilst maintaining strong professional boundaries. The role includes elements of line management and a contribution to the on-call rota, therefore flexibility is needed as although the role is predominantly office-based Monday to Friday, some evening and weekend work will be required according to the needs of the service. This role has a significant element of community working therefore a full driving licence is essential.

It is an incredibly exciting time to be joining us as we have recently completed an extensive refurbishment of the Children’s Unit, along with our new Terms and Conditions and staff benefits launched on the 1st April 2022.

In return we can offer you:

  • competitive salary
  • unsocial hour payments
  • on-call allowance
  • paid NMC Registration
  • high staff ratios
  • contributory pension scheme
  • bridge tolls paid for staff who live over the Humber Bridge
  • access to excellent staff benefits
  • revalidation and Excellent CPD
  • flexible working

In addition, we offer an excellent annual leave allowance, and for those applicants joining us from another Hospice or the NHS, your length of service will be honored in regards to your annual leave allowance.
