Are you looking for a rewarding and challenging opportunity where your work really matters? If so, Hospice in The Weald may be the place for you. We are recruiting full time, part time or bank staff to join our team.

An exciting new opportunity has arisen to join the Children’s Service at Hospice in the Weald. You will care for children aged 0-18 with life-limiting conditions, including a variety of complex health needs, offering sessions of respite care both in the home and eventually in our new Children’s Centre at Five Ashes. We are looking for enthusiastic, flexible team players with a passion for providing high quality holistic care to children and their families, with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

You will be an integral part of the team and assist in its development, working alongside children’s support workers and volunteers to help us care for our first caseload of children. You will support and enable children, young people, and their families to have access to experiences they may not otherwise be able to have. You will communicate effectively and respectfully, sometimes in difficult circumstances, while maintaining accurate records of care on the electronic care record system.

You will be a registered children’s nurse, ideally with experience of working with children with complex health needs. We will provide training and support for clinical responsibilities including competency assessments.
Benefits include free parking and a generous holiday allowance with the ability to buy and sell additional holiday. You can even carry over an NHS pension.
