Want to make a difference to Local Lives?

Do you have strong leadership skills, a passion for fundraising with a track record for delivering financial results, along with a desire to work for a meaningful cause? If so, we have a fantastic opportunity to join St Wilfrid’s Hospice as the Head of Fundraising.

Experience at a senior level in managing a varied and innovative fundraising environment, with a £2 million+ turnover, is crucial. But, more importantly, you must have a passion, and drive, for empowering teams and achieving meaningful results. The ever-evolving landscape of charity fundraising makes this an incredibly exciting opportunity to make a profound difference.

    Job description

    Want to make a difference to Local Lives?

    We are an independent local charity based in Bosham, Chichester offering a wide range of services to support our patients, and their loved ones, who are living with a life limiting or terminal illness.

    The work we do makes a real difference to the lives of local people and we support over 330 patients at any one time between our In Patient Unit and Community teams.

    We have exciting opportunities for Bank Band 5 Registered Nurses to join our IPU team for Night Duty.

    Why join us as a Bank Registered Nurse?

    As a Bank Registered Nurse at St Wilfrid’s you will have the time to listen and understand the individual needs and wishes of our patients and their loved ones, making sure each one gets the care they deserve and helping them achieve the best quality of life for as long as possible.

    “I think it’s an amazing place to work. You can feel drawn to this type of care, and working here at our new purpose-built specialist facility in Bosham allows us to work together so well. The two things that really make a difference as a nurse are team support, and development opportunities. There’s really strong support from the team- both your nursing peers, and also your medical team- you have time to discuss your patients with the consultants and doctors, and immediate access to colleagues. If I knew a nursing professional, a student or someone just starting out in nursing, I would definitely advise them to consider hospice nursing. I’m very proud to do the job I do.”

    Being a Bank Registered Nurse at St Wilfrid’s

    As a Bank Registered Nurse, you’ll be working with a team that supports patients and their loved ones by delivering the highest standard of palliative care.

    You’ll have the time to do what really matters and makes a difference to the patients. Part of this will be providing quality experiences to patients, such as a jacuzzi bath, a movie night sleep over or making a memory box.

    We receive wonderful feedback from some of our patients’ families that highlights why we do this; ‘thank you for all the love support and care you gave to our Dad, who loved the garden, and to us as a family. You all made some of the most difficult times more bearable and gave us some truly wonderful memories that we will cherish and never forget’.

    Working on the Inpatient Unit, you will also learn new clinical skills. For example how to use complementary therapy and holistic support alongside complex medication regimes to manage patients’ challenging physical and psychological symptoms.

    We encourage you to come and have a look around our Hospice and see the great facilities we are offering. All patients have individual rooms leading out to our gardens and it is a lovely environment for both patients and staff.

    We would love to receive applications from Registered Nurses with post registration experience in cancer, palliative care or similar. We are also welcoming applications from newly registered nurses who will be supported by the team to develop their clinical practice and knowledge.
