If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you! We currently have an opening for an experienced nurse to join our amazing CHAS at Home Team.

The Role

We have a fantastic opportunity for a staff nurse to join our existing CHAS at Home team. With a base in Aberdeen the team works in families’ homes providing the highest level of family centred care to support the needs of babies, children and young people with life shortening conditions and their families.

As an experienced nurse you will be supported with an induction to palliative and end of life care, exploring areas such as advanced communication, symptom management, pain management and development of advanced clinical skills such as PN, PD and ventilation.

Key Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Provide a high standard of palliative nursing care to children and young people who have life-shortening conditions, through assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of care plans, ensuring that the care provision is adapted to meet the complex needs of the individual.
  • Provide nursing care at end of life and bereavement support including last office procedures, for the child, young person and their family, with support as required.
  • As necessary, provide care for the child, young person and their family in a variety of settings, ensuring the care plan meets the needs of the individual.
  • Collaborate and liaise with a range of professionals to meet the needs of the child, young person and their family taking opportunities to promote and raise awareness of the services provided by CHAS
  • Maintain and accurately updates all written and electronic records in accordance with appropriate legislation and organisational standards.


Working with CHAS provides a unique opportunity to support children and families to make the most of their precious time together; as a team, we make extraordinary things happen every day.

Some of the benefits you can expect to receive from working with CHAS:

  • The opportunity to pay into an existing NHS scheme or membership of local government pension scheme
