Want to find out more about why working in a Hospice could be the best job you've ever had?

Hospice UK have put together this short video which highlights many benefits of working in a Hospice by sharing the views of hospice professionals and what working in a hospice means to them. This video has been filmed with clinical care team members but we think it gives you a great idea of what it’s like to work in a hospice in a non-clinical role too!

As a responsible healthcare organisation, we must do our utmost to ensure the wellbeing and safety of our patients, staff and volunteers. Therefore, in line with government guidance, we actively encourage vaccination as the most important defence against the virus. Following the interview, successful candidates will be asked to declare their Covid-19 vaccination status.
