Highly competitive salary


Are you someone who enjoys spending time with children and young people, providing fun filled opportunities and creating special memories? As this is the experience we have, here, at St Andrew’s Hospice. We offer a warm, friendly, and nurturing environment where our children, young people, families and workforce are at the heart of everything we do, in striving to make each day enjoyable for everyone.

You can make a real difference to the lives of babies, children and young people who have palliative care needs and life limiting conditions, keeping them at the centre of everything that we do – alongside supporting our families throughout their journey from referral to end of life and bereavement support.

It is often said that being in palliative care nursing is a real honour and privilege but is frequently overlooked as a career pathway. Here are St Andrew’s we strive to make every second count, and where every moment creates a memory for the family. We aim to bring joy, happiness and laughter to our Children’s Services, and support tears and sad times with the utmost care and compassion.

Every baby, child, young person and family are different, every conversation and everything we put into place for our families is supported with an individualised plan of care. You will have a wonderful opportunity to work with children and families having time to make a difference and time to care – this is what makes our organisation special.

Here at Andy’s our Registered Nurses are at the heart of everything we do in helping us to deliver the best possible care to our families. We are therefore, looking for talented individuals who share our passion to improve the lives of children and young people with a variety of complex health conditions. We are about making everyday count, and you can play your part in that.

You will have excellent clinical skills, be a good communicator and strive to make a difference in creative and demonstrable ways.

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 the care we provide is predominantly in the community, access to a vehicle is essential, as is a full driving licence.

In return we offer you:

  • Competitive salary
  • Unsocial hour payments
  • On call allowance
  • Paid NMC Registration
  • High staff ratios
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Excellent annual leave (Applying from another Hospice or the NHS, your length of service is carried forward in regards to your annual leave allowance).
  • Bridge tolls paid for staff who live over the Humber Bridge
  • Access to excellent staff benefits
  • Revalidation and Excellent CPD
  • Flexible working

If you would like to work alongside our fantastic team of Nurses, we would love to hear from you.

We would very much welcome applicants to look around our amazing facilities.
