‘Happy to talk about flexible working’

Our Support at Home service provides emotional and practical help to patients, their families and carers. The service will provide extra support through volunteers.

  • Have you got experience of coordinating volunteers in a social care setting?
  • Do you have a professional, positive attitude?
  • Can you remain calm and prioritise effectively under pressure and in highly emotive situations?

If you can answer yes to these questions and you enjoy working within a busy team this post could be for you.

Key duties include:

  • Leading volunteer recruitment and coordinating training
  • Assessing patients and allocating volunteers
  • Organising and monitoring the work of Support at Home volunteers
  • Collating service feedback and supporting on project reporting
  • Ensuring any safeguarding concerns are reported according to Hospice policies and procedures

You should be educated to GCSE Level standard or equivalent qualifications and have knowledge of delivering social care services for adults.

It is essential that you are an excellent communicator with a high level of emotional intelligence and able to work flexibly to meet the needs of the role which may include some out of hours working.
