About the role

We are currently recruiting for a senior staff nurse to join our Children’s Community Hospice Care team for a fixed term maternity cover.

We are looking for an experienced Registered Children’s Nurse with some knowledge and experience of community nursing, Oncology, Complex Care and/or Children’s Palliative Care.

You will have excellent clinical skills and enthusiasm for working within this discipline, but being a nurse at ellenor isn’t just about nursing.

It’s about being able to think creatively and really make a difference to a family’s challenging journey, enabling a child to live as normal and fulfilling a life as possible.

At ellenor we recognise that having a sick child impacts the whole family, and we make sure the services we offer are there for everyone. The role is very varied, can be tough but is also hugely rewarding.

The hours are predominantly between Mon to Fri 8:30 -5:30 including bank holidays, but you will also be expected to work flexibly to support a 24-hour 7 day on call service when a child is requiring end of life care at home.

A minimum of 22.5 hours is required up to a maximum of 37.5

Posts will be subject to Enhanced DBS clearance.

Competency based training and support will be provided for any gaps in knowledge, and professional development is encouraged. An employer contributory pension scheme is available, and NHS Pension Scheme members can transfer in their pension.

Please note this position is with ellenor and not the NHS.

For informal enquiries please contact Megan Watkins on 07818 689903
