Salary upto £25,695 (£26,766 FTE) dependent on role p.a. plus shift enhancements

Due to a number of retirements, an exciting opportunity has arisen for enthusiastic, flexible and committed Registered Nurses, Nurse Associates or Assistant Practitioners to join our dynamic, friendly, specialist palliative care team. This post holder will be required to work various shifts (from 8 – 12 hours) and will be a rotation between days and nights.

Based in Carlisle, we have a 12-bed inpatient unit, day hospice and children’s hospice. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are operating our services more flexibly than in the past, and your main focus will be on the inpatient unit. You will be working as part of a multidisciplinary team, you will be responsible for delivering outstanding patient care and have the innovation to support our vision for the future. Due to excellent staff to patient ratios, you will have time to care for and build relationships with patients and their families.

The hospice’s vision is to provide excellence in specialist palliative care and to ensure patients receive consistently high standards of care in all care settings within the organisation. There is a culture of reflection, training, supporting and development for staff and Eden Valley Hospice provides a creative and unique environment with many opportunities for personal and professional growth. A willingness to advance skills is therefore essential.
