Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home

Band 7 £31,383-£41,373

An exciting opportunity to join our rapidly growing nationally acclaimed children’s hospice at home service based in Bristol.

We are seeking an experienced health or social care service manager with a related professional qualification to join and lead our exceptional Jessie May children’s nursing team. We currently provide our children’s hospice at home services across Bath, Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon & Wiltshire.

You will take the lead in the development of new services and approaches ensuring that the team is well supported and is able to continue to deliver the highest standards of care. You must be passionate about supporting children with complex and palliative care needs in their own homes and communities.

You will also be committed to involving children and families at every level of the organisation and in developing strong partnerships with other service providers.

You will lead a team of equally committed and passionate Jessie May nurses delivering the highest quality of care and support including at end of life and bereavement.

You will be employed by the NHS with all the associated benefits and security of employment whilst working within a small growing charity that is flexible and responsive to the needs of children and families and the staff who support them.

This is a new post and you will have the opportunity to both shape the role itself and to influence the future of the service as we continue to grow.
