Job description

St Gemma’s Hospice is a truly special place.


“Our son, Joe Turner, was inspirational. He was determined, strong, kind, clever, funny, witty, sporty, thoughtful, generous and happy. He wanted to enjoy his last precious months ‘being a normal teenager’ and the St Gemma’s team did everything they could to support him in doing just that.”


St Gemma’s is one of the UK’s leading hospices and has been providing the best possible care and support for the people of Leeds for over 40 years! There has never been a more exciting time to join the hospice as the charity builds on the success of the past, with some ambitious growth plans for the future!
