Take time to care

We want to expand our nursing team to make sure people in our community receive the care and support that they need when faced with life limiting illness.

We are recruiting for various roles including registered nurses, clinical nurse specialists, nursing associates and palliative care assistants. Whether you are new to palliative care or already have experience we welcome applications from nurses who believe in excellence, compassion, integrity, accountability and inclusion.

Full time, part time and bank options are available. We offer a competitive salary (all nursing salaries are currently aligned with the NHS Agenda for Change pay scale) and rewards package including generous holiday, pension, opportunities for progression, support with CPD and free parking. We will also honour and retain long service annual leave gained, allowing you the same entitlement in your new role as you progress in your career choices.

100% of our nurses find their role meaningful. You too could make a difference to people in our community.
