Would you like to provide learning and development opportunities for specialist palliative care staff through education, clinical supervision, and clinical practice?

Could you lead on the implementation of the clinical skills competency framework, including the design and delivery of training and competency documents?

Are you looking for a job with flexible working opportunities offering a better work-life balance?

If you’ve answered yes to the questions above and you are passionate about supporting the learning and development of specialist palliative care staff at Rennie Grove, delivering educational activities and providing developmental support in order to maintain and promote safe, compassionate, high quality evidence-based care for those we care for, we would love to hear from you.

We now have an exciting new permanent full-time role available in our Professional Development team and we’re looking for a committed, compassionate and caring person to join us.

As a Practice Educator you will provide a specialist palliative care education programme including but not limited to the identification, development and delivery of training in palliative and end of life care, symptom management and communication skills.

You will be based at our office in Tring, but may be required to travel across the Rennie Grove catchment area (Buckinghamshire/ west Hertfordshire) so a car and driving licence will be essential.

To be successful in the role you’ll need to be a First Level Registered Nurse and have:

• a degree (or equivalent) in a relevant field of practice
• a qualification in palliative care or relevant experience
• extensive experience in mentoring and developing staff in the clinical field
• substantial experience of identifying, developing and delivering training

The following will be particularly helpful:

• a recognised teaching qualification
• a qualification in clinical supervision
• experience of implementing a clinical competency framework

37.5 hours per week.

We offer development, flexible working, opportunities to volunteer and 27 days’ holiday per year plus bank holidays.

At Rennie Grove Hospice Care, we’re all about making every moment matter for our patients and families, and you can play your part in that. We provide care and support for adults and children diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illness, and their families. It’s important work and, to make it all happen, we need talented and passionate people.

Are you ready to make a difference? Apply on
