    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.

    Why join us as a Bank Senior Healthcare Assistant?

    We’re a friendly, inspiring and supportive team, committed to our vision to provide high quality end of life and palliative care. We value diversity and are committed to being a place where people feel their differences are recognised and welcomed, and their needs are heard and respected. Creating an inclusive workplace is a core part of our aim to ensure St Wilfrid’s is a great place to work and a compassionate and caring place to be.

    “I’ve worked in hospices for nearly 37 years. When I first started, it was because someone I knew was in a hospice and I had seen the care that people get offered at hospices and it was my cup of tea and fit me nicely. You’re able to give the care you want to give and you have the time, whereas at a hospital, which I’ve worked in, you don’t have that time to give.

    It’s been lovely, everyone’s so friendly. Immediately when I came for my interview, and as I said to my husband, everyone talks to you and are so friendly and happy in their jobs.”
