Birmingham Hospice, formed by the merger of Birmingham St Mary’s and John Taylor Hospices, is looking for Band 5 Staff Nurses to join its Inpatient Unit.
We are looking for innovative, motivated, enthusiastic, patient-centred nurses who are dynamic and passionate about nursing, to help us deliver the highest possible standard of palliative and end of life care to our patients, their families and loved ones. The posts involve working within a multi-disciplinary team offering specialist palliative care to patients in our Inpatient Unit.
Our staff nurses are responsible for assessing the care needs of our patients; developing, implementing and evaluating appropriate programmes of care and support; and ensuring the physical, psychological, spiritual and emotional needs of our patients and their loved ones are met. Additionally, you will be be expected to supervise, mentor and support Band 2/3 staff and contribute to providing training to junior colleagues.
Outstanding communication skills are needed to fulfil this role.
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. If this sounds like the role for you, we’d love to receive your application.
You will be expected to work flexibly over a seven-day rota. We are committed to staff development as an ongoing professional requirement and consider this a priority.
Informal visits/discussions are strongly encouraged.
For further information and informal discussion about the role, please contact Jody Thompson: email@example.com.
This post will predominately be based at Birmingham Hospice, Selly Park. However, there may be times where work across both hospice sites is expected.

Birmingham Hospice supports vaccination uptake as this remains the best line of defence against COVID-19. Clinical staff will be required to be immunised against Hep B.
If high volumes of applications are received, we may bring the closing date forward.
No recruitment agencies please.
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.
This is a fantastic opportunity with training opportunities available. We consider staff / team development as a priority.
Candidates can be put off applying for a job when they have caring responsibilities and may not think they can achieve the flexibility they need. We are keen to hear from you, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request, we’ll try to find a practical solution.
