Want to make a difference? It’s an exciting time at Primrose Hospice
- Day Hospice Staff Nurse 22.5 hours per week over 3 days
(currently Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) – Permanent
Due to the retirement of a valued member of our nursing team we are looking to recruit a Day Hospice Staff Nurse who wants to make a difference to our community.
Based in Bromsgrove and serving North-East Worcestershire, Primrose Hospice provides compassionate care to patients with life-limiting illnesses and support for their family.
We currently provide a Day Hospice, nurse led clinics, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, spiritual support as well as a thriving well-being service and complementary therapies. This care is supported by our Family Support Team.
As well as offering competitive salaries, we support continuing contributions to the NHS pension scheme, offer a package of employee support and development, flexible working opportunities, free onsite parking and free refreshments.
No weekend work is required although staff are encouraged to support our wonderful fundraising events where possible.
This is a great opportunity to make a real difference to people and their families at a difficult time in their lives.
The ideal candidates will have experience of working in end-of-life care within an acute or palliative care setting, although this experience is not essential, it is preferred; training and support will be given.
The successful candidates must hold a first level registration in General Nursing (RN) within the UK as well as a current, valid PIN. They must be a keen team player with good interpersonal and communication skills who believe that working with people in the last years of life is a privilege.
An Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check is required for this post.
Visits to the Hospice are more than welcome, or for an informal discussion please contact Di McCallion on 01527 871051 ext 209. To apply please complete the application form and equal opportunities form below (CV’s will not be accepted) and send with a covering letter to Diane McCallion, Primrose Hospice, St Godwald’s Road, Bromsgrove, B60 3BW.
Closing date: 5pm Monday 3rd February 2020
