We’re currently recruiting for Band 5/6 Paediatric Nurses to work at our CQC Outstanding rated Guildford based hospice, Christopher’s, where we work closely with local NHS Trusts to provide excellent and compassionate care.
As a leading children’s hospice charity, Shooting Star Children’s Hospices cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families across Surrey and London. Our aim is to deliver highly professional services which place children and young people with life-limiting conditions at the heart of everything we do. We’re always on the lookout for talented and caring people who want to join our fantastic team and make a difference to local families.
The children and young people have very complex health needs, which will enable you to develop your clinical skills – especially long-term ventilation. 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 sensory room.
As well as using your current skill set to ensure children receive a care service, our Practice Education Team will tailor a bespoke programme of support for you and develop your competencies in the latest procedures within palliative care.
We compare favourable with the NHS pay and conditions and in addition to an enhanced remuneration package and NHS pension we offer free meals on duty, subsided staff accommodation in Guildford, free car parking and clinical supervision.
Our commitment to you – we will honour the back dated NHS pay award when agreed ensuring you do not lose this payment.
