This is an exciting time for Andy’s as we launch 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.

In return, we offer a welcoming environment where every person matters, competitive salary package which includes a contributory pension scheme, staff benefits and excellent training and development opportunities.

We look forward to hearing from you

Informal discussions are encouraged prior to application.
