The Role

Hope House Children’s Hospices is a centre of excellence for children’s palliative care ensuring every family facing the death of a child gets the very best care and support when and where they need it.

We are recruiting an effective leader with outstanding communication and people skills to manage the continuous delivery of nursing care in the hospice, at home and in the community. You will put the children and families at the heart of everything we do and use our resources carefully to deliver responsive, safe and effective care.

This growth has created a unique opportunity for a passionate individual to shape and lead our large care team and play an active role in improving and developing services and delivering our Care Strategy. 

Join us and together let's make sure no one faces the death of a child alone.
