  • work in a pleasant environment where you’ll be well supported?
  • be encouraged to advance your professional development?
  • work for an organisation which has recently been rated as outstanding by the Care Quality Commission in all three hospices?
  • If so, look no further – EACH can offer all this to you.

We are looking for Children’s Nurses, or Adult Nurses with relevant experience (Bands 5 and 6), and Care Assistants (Band 3) for all three of our hospices at Milton in Cambridgeshire, The Nook in Norfolk and The Treehouse in Suffolk.

Is this the right opportunity for you?

Are you…

  • looking for an exciting new challenge?
  • wanting to develop your skills and knowledge?
  • wanting to be part of an enthusiastic, progressive, forward-thinking and professional team?
  • aspiring to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people with life-threatening conditions, and their families?

The rewards
In our commitment to you, we will…

  • ensure the package and conditions are competitive, including salary, holiday, sickness, maternity benefits and pension (you can continue contributing to your NHS pension scheme if you already have one).
  • provide you with all the training and development required to deliver children’s palliative care.
