An opportunity for a Healthcare Assistant has arisen within the Hospice Community Team.

Successful candidates will be able to offer the highest level of individualised holistic care to patients and their families and carers.  Maintaining continuity of patient care which is planned and regularly assessed, we are looking for Healthcare Assistants to support the senior Hospice Community team ensuring we provide compassionate and attentive direct nursing in our patient’s home.

In addition to a friendly, inspiring and supportive working atmosphere with a committed team of colleagues, we offer employees a competitive salary with a flexible work pattern, a comprehensive benefits package which includes a generous holiday entitlement starting at 27 days per year plus bank holiday entitlement (pro rata), or a continuation of NHS entitlement, a contributory pension scheme, or continuation in the NHS Superannuation Scheme, life assurance, access to complementary therapies, discounted gym membership plus a contributory cash reimbursement plan for you and family members.

We strive to continually lead with our values to develop individual potential in the workplace.  We welcome, recognise and encourage the valuable contribution that people from all backgrounds and experiences bring and are committed to promoting an environment that is inclusive and free from all forms of discrimination.
