Birmingham Hospice is the leading provider of adult palliative care in the region. We care for people in their own homes, in the community,  at our Living Well Centres and in our Inpatient Units. We have two sites, one in Erdington and one Selly Park where this role is predominantly based.

We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic patient-centred nurses to join our team and help us deliver the highest standard of palliative and end of life care to our patients. The role involves working within a multi-disciplinary team alongside other clinical and medical teams. However, there may be times where work across both hospice sites is expected.

  • You must be a UK, 1st level registered nurse, and have evidence of continuous professional development, with an excellent standard of nursing care and clinical knowledge.
  • You will be expected to work flexibly over a seven-day rota.

Key benefits

  • Free onsite parking.

  • We’re happy to talk about flexible working, including those with caring responsibilities – while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request, we’ll try to find a practical solution.
  • Birmingham Hospice is committed to colleague development as an ongoing professional requirement and consider this a priority.
  • For individuals joining the charity from the NHS or another hospice, the employee’s continuous previous service with any NHS employer is recognised in respect of pension provision and annual leave.

“After I saw the care my dad received at the hospice, I knew I wanted to work there.”

Barbara Bennett, a Healthcare Assistant at Birmingham Hospice’s Erdington site, was inspired to join the hospice after seeing the expert palliative care her dad, Frederick, received there.

Having worked in healthcare for 30 years, Barbara decided it was time she went into palliative and end of life care after helping to care for her father when he was diagnosed with heart failure, kidney failure and dementia.
