Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support for children and young people with serious and terminal conditions and their loved ones, across Kent, East Sussex and South East London.

We help with every element of life for a child or young person with a serious or terminal condition by providing tailored care. From diagnosis through to end of life and bereavement services, we’re there for that journey.

We are currently looking for a Band 6 equivalent Senior Registered Nurse with knowledge and experience of children’s palliative care and complex care to join our Nursing team with a focus on setting up and providing palliative care in the child’s own home.

Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support for children with serious or terminal conditions and their loved ones, so that they can enjoy time together as a family, for as long as they have.

You will work closely with the Demelza Care at Home Team Leader and manage a caseload of children. You will also recruit, lead and manage HCA’s working in the Demelza Care at Home Team and residential hospice. Our Care at Home and residential hospice services work closely together and you may be required to support residential services within the hospice as required to meet the needs of children and families.

You will be required to work flexibly to support a 24/7 service as well as provide out of hours cover to our on-call service for children. Shifts will include rotation onto days, nights, weekends and public holidays, for which additional enhancement payments will be made. Full time or part time considered (minimum 30 hours per week).

Apply now to join #TeamDemelza and be part of our passion and dedication to be there when we are needed the most.
