Children’s Hospices across Scotland, better known as CHAS, is Scotland’s national children’s hospice service which cares for children with life shortening conditions and their families. We operate across the country through our two hospices as well as in hospitals and our home care service in the community.


Three children die every week in Scotland from an incurable condition. At the moment, CHAS can only reach one in three of these families but we are determined to reach them all. We must be there for every family that needs us to help them celebrate the lives of their children whilst they are together and to honour their memory after they have died.


Do you want to be part of this amazing ambition and help us reach every family in Scotland that needs us?


We are looking for friendly, enthusiastic Housekeepers to join our team dedicated to really making a difference to the lives of the children and families we support.

Main duties will include helping with cleaning of the house including preparation of children’s and family rooms, all main communal and office areas including bathrooms. As well as assisting with the laundry; to include laundering of bed linen and clothes.

The successful candidate should have experience of working in a cleaning or housekeeping role, ideally within a healthcare, hotel or similar setting however this is not essential as full training would be given.  A good understanding of Health and Safety and Infection Control Practices is preferred.  Good communication skills are essential as well as a warm and friendly approach.

At CHAS, staff and volunteers work together as one team, focused on the common goal of reaching every family in Scotland who needs our support. All CHAS staff will at some point work with or alongside volunteers and will be expected to support them.

A commitment to CHAS core values, vision and purpose is essential.
