Registered Nurse (Adult)

Eden Valley Hospice is a dynamic and responsive specialist care provider for people with palliative and end of life care needs. We have an exciting opportunity for a Registered Nurse to join our energetic, friendly, specialist palliative care team on our in patient unit.

Based in Carlisle, we have a 10-bed inpatient unit, day hospice and children’s hospice.

We work collaboratively across the county with strong links to other care providers.

As a Registered Nurse, you will be working as part of a multidisciplinary team, and will be responsible for planning, co-ordinating, delivering and evaluating person-centred and evidence-based palliative care for patients, families and carers. 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.

Eden Valley Hospice provides a creative and unique environment with many opportunities for personal and professional growth and pay progression.  A willingness to advance skills is therefore essential. There is a culture of reflection, training, support and development for all staff, with access to regular clinical supervision and training.

Our preference would be for the post holder to work various shifts (12 hours) on rotation between days, nights and weekends.

Our clinical teams are at the heart of everything we do. We appreciate that, as a charity, we may appear to be a less stable option than other healthcare employers. However, we have recently celebrated our 30th anniversary and plan to be around for many years to come. Whilst we can never be complacent about the scale of the fundraising challenge that we continually face, the success of our income generation efforts and our prudent approach to managing our resources will ensure that we remain financially secure.

We offer some great benefits including generous shift enhancements, free on-site parking, access to our Employee Assistance Programme and for eligible employees, the opportunity to remain in the NHS pension scheme.
