Salary: Circa £40k - £45k per annum (Pro Rata)
30 Hours per week - flexible working, can spread over 4 or 5 days

The purpose of this role is to support the Hospice in achieving its strategic aim of reaching more people, enabling the communities they serve to have the best care and support before, during and after death.

Forward thinking and resilient, you will help them to change this pattern, developing their knowledge and understanding and enabling them to make effective changes to their existing services to make them more accessible to all.
To make this happen, you will be evidence-led, using insight from data from the service users and building relationships with underrepresented communities.

You will possess the relevant awareness of clinical work, and how the health and care system would operate, plus awareness of knowledge of palliative end of life care. You will also be able to show your ability to engage with various communities and experience in doing so.
You will therefore have the knowledge, understanding and confidence to be able to challenge established assumptions and ways of working, developing inclusive behaviours and working practices which will benefit their patients and service users.
