Job description

Clinical Officer / Specialist Nurse

Compassion in Dying is leading the way for a better end of life for all. We champion the patient voice and support people to be in control of decisions about their treatment and care, including planning for the end of life. We enable people to have a better death; dying in a place of their choice, with the people they love, and the care and treatment they do and don’t want.

Our information line service specialises in providing information on Advance Care Planning and people’s rights under the Mental Capacity Act. We have supported over 70,000 people and the demand for our services is high. Recently we have seen a growing number of complex cases, with people needing support to make treatment decisions and to navigate the complex health and social care system at the end of life, while they still have capacity, and to support loved ones who have lost capacity.

We are excited to be expanding our clinical team and are looking for a dedicated and motivated individual who can provide accurate, clear and practical verbal and written information and support.

The successful candidate will have clinical knowledge and experience, alongside excellent communication skills, enabling them to convey complex information in a straightforward and sensitive way by phone and email. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the expansion of a growing information and support service. This is a new permanent position, with the opportunity to grow within the role.
