About the role of Director of Care  

Shooting Star Children’s Hospices is a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families. We support families across Surrey and London from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care.

This is a great opportunity to lead the care service of one of the UK’s largest and most innovative children’s hospice services. This comes at a time of rising demand for our services and the upcoming launch of an ambitious organisational strategy designed to meet this challenge.

The Director of Care will provide high quality, dynamic and inspiring leadership. You will lead on strategic development and delivery of our services, exhibiting a clear passion and commitment for our work. Working alongside our Leadership Team, you will also contribute to the wider strategic development of the organisation.

You will be an inspiring senior manager who has worked in a clinical environment with substantial experience in managing and developing multidisciplinary teams.

If you have a passion for children’s palliative care, exceptional leadership, great management skills and want to have an impact on the way our care service is delivered, then we look forward to hearing from you.
