We are currently recruiting for Clinical Nurse Specialists to join our Children’s Community Hospice Care team.

ellenor is the provider of all-encompassing hospice care for both adults and children living in Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley, West Kent and Bexley. Our services include adult In-patient and Day Therapy at the Hospice in Northfleet, and 24-hour Hospice at Home for all ages. Our strategic aims recognise our role in leading the development of services to the wider community at the end of life, and we see an increasing role in education and training and as a coordinator for providing the best possible palliative care to more people and families.

We are looking for experienced Registered Children’s Nurses with knowledge and experience of Oncology, Complex Care and Children’s Palliative Care. You will have excellent clinical skills and enthusiasm for working within this discipline.

The children and young people we care for all have life limiting or life threatening conditions and we are proud to offer a range of services to support the whole family. The role is very varied and requires a good understanding of the complex emotional and physical needs of the children and families. We provide opportunities for professional development which include degree pathways, non medical prescribing and advanced clinical assessment skills courses.

You will be required to work flexibly to support 7 day service as well as provide out of hours cover to our on call service for children who are at the end of life when required.

Posts will be subject to Enhanced DBS clearance.

Support with professional development will be provided. An employer contributory pension scheme is available, and NHS Pension Scheme members can transfer in their pension. Please note this position is with ellenor. You will not be employed by the NHS and as such does not attract the same benefits and conditions.

For informal enquiries please contact Rebecca Scalzo on 01474 320007 ext 1103

Closing Date: 31st January 2021
