at Shooting Star Children's Hospices

Nursing Jobs

Our paediatric nurses are at the heart of the care we deliver. Children who come to our hospice for respite or end-of-life care have complex health needs, which will enable you to develop your clinical skills, especially long-term ventilation. As well as providing hands-on clinical care you will be helping children make the most of their time with us. This could be swimming in our hydrotherapy pool, relaxing in the sensory room, having fun in the garden, taking part in arts and crafts or going on a trip out.

You will work as part of our CQC Outstanding rated team at Christopher’s hospice, alongside other nurses, care support assistants,  social workers, family support workers and our links with the NHS and other agencies.

We offer a competitive remuneration package with additional unsocial hours payments, you can continue your NHS pension contributions or join our Stakeholder Pension Scheme, and we offer free onsite staff parking, free meals during shifts and more.
