About the role

We currently have opportunities for Bank Paediatric Nurses to join the Shooting Star Children’s Hospices team at Christopher’s, our CQC Outstanding rated children’s hospice based in Artington near Guildford.

We can offer you:

  • flexible working hours around your other commitments
  • the opportunity to gain experience of working within a children’s hospice
  • a gradual return to work after a break
  • try a different specialty or area

You must have  experience of looking after children with complex needs, excellent interpersonal skills, be a quick learner and be able to adapt to different situations. In return we will offer you a great place to work, good rates of pay and support from our teams.

We operate a three shift pattern of 7.5 hours across early and late and 11 hour nights. We are particularly looking for nurses who wish to work night shifts.

Many of our children and young people have very complex health needs, which will enable you to develop your clinical skills. As well as providing hands on clinical care there is time for lots of fun. You’ll be swimming in our hydrotherapy pool, facilitating arts and crafts, going on outings and helping children to relax in our multi-sensory room.

Please note that appointment will be conditional subject to enhanced DBS clearance, Occupational Health clearance and satisfactory references.

To have an informal chat or arrange an informal visit call Becky Whiting, Lead Nurse at Christopher’s, on 01483 230960.
