As a Hospice we have tremendous expertise in dying, death and loss and we want to share that knowledge more widely. We recognise that communities play an integral role in developing social networks of care to support people experiencing dying, death and loss and so we want to create a partnership between the clinical services we provide and the communities we serve. To help us do this we are recruiting a Community Partnerships and Inclusion Lead. If you have an interest in public health palliative care, experience and expertise in community development and are a skilled communicator and connector, we’d love to hear from you.
Experience of working within end-of-life care is not essential, but recognising the value and importance of this work is. You also need to have a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion to enable the Hospice to reach those in marginalised communities. You will be a dynamic, creative individual with exceptional interpersonal skills to build and nurture partnerships and lead a team to success. Whilst supporting the team operationally, you will also have the strategic insight to drive a variety of diverse projects forward; each grounded supporting communities to engage with death as a social process and co-create community-owned capacity to live well with dying, death, grief and loss.
At St Michael’s Hospice we offer a friendly, team orientated work environment – a good pension scheme with the option to continue any existing NHS pension scheme membership, an Employee Assistance Programme, Benenden Healthcare, up to 29 days annual leave plus bank holidays, subsidised employee meals and free refreshments, free parking, supportive supervision and a proactive Education Department to support with your development. Hospice employees also qualify for a Blue Light Card with access to a huge array of discounts.
