This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced health care assistant to join a highly skilled and motivated team of medical, nursing, allied health professionals and social workers contribute to the delivery of high quality palliative and end of life care services on our in-patient unit.
The successful applicant will be a self-motivated, enthusiastic individual who will join our welcoming and caring environment. We pride ourselves on the high standards of care we deliver and are looking for applicants with a passion for palliative care, who have the right knowledge and skills to support this. You will have excellent communication skills with the ability to communicate in a sensitive manner and enjoy working as part of a team. Health care assistants will be educated to NVQ level 2 in Health and Social care or equivalent and have previous experience in a similar care setting.
We value and support our staff and volunteers with training and development. You will be supported with regular clinical supervision. We offer a workplace pension but do honour those who are already in an NHS pension. As an employee of St Cuthbert’s Hospice you will benefit from 25 days annual leave per year pro rata (rising to 27 after 5 years’ service), in addition to Bank Holidays. The salary scale is dependent upon relevant transferable skills and experience.
