Do you enjoy being in a changing and dynamic environment? Are you passionate about improving the lives of babies, children, young people and their families with life limiting conditions? Do you have the ability to engage and work alongside people?

You will ideally be qualified to a minimum of an HND level in a relevant subject area, and will have palliative care experience of working with children with complex care requirements.
