As one of the local leading providers of palliative and end of life care, St Andrew’s Hospice is a highly successful and forward-thinking charity with a turnover of c£5m, offering both adult and children’s services. With an excellent reputation both in the local community and beyond, we reach over 800 patients and their families in North East Lincolnshire and our wider catchment area of Lincolnshire, Hull and East Yorkshire for our children’s services.

Working for Andy’s’ can offer a rewarding career with a great team, with 140 staff, a large Hospice site and 23 charity shops working together to ensure that patients and their families have the best possible experience and receive the highest quality of care.

It’s an exciting time to be joining Andy’s Children’s Hospice as we near the completion of our refurbishment.

We’re looking for someone who is empathetic and resilient, who can communicate sensitively with families and colleagues and deliver high standards of care to our patients. You will be a good-team player and be able to be flexible in your approach to work.

This is a wonderful opportunity to deliver care to a range of children and young people with a variety of complex health conditions. We are about making every day count for our patients and families, and you can play your part in that. It is important work and, to make it all happen, we need talented and passionate people.

As a Registered Nurse it is essential that you hold a first or second-level registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and in addition, would be advantageous to possess post registration experience in a children’s, community palliative care setting.

Flexibility is essential as the working hours are based on an internal rotation which includes days, nights and weekends and as this role includes elements of working in the community, access to a vehicle is essential, as is a full driving licence.

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.
