An exciting opportunity has arisen for enthusiastic Healthcare Assistants located in North Somerset to join our team. We are looking for experienced care staff to deliver care and support to people with terminal illnesses whilst also offering vital emotional support for their families. The available positions are predominantly night shifts 10pm-7am.

With experience of End of Life care, you're ready and able to make a real difference. Ours is a one-to-one approach to care for patients usually within their own homes. So, you're sure to enjoy plenty of meaningful contact with patients and their families.

Working without close supervision, you'll have the opportunity to use your own initiative in line with the patient's established care plan. You'll be required to carry out a range of duties including helping patients meet their hygiene needs, monitoring symptoms, assisting with medications and keeping detailed records.

To join our dedicated, caring team, you'll need relevant community experience, an S/NVQ Level 2/3 qualification or an equivalent certificate/diploma. Emotional strength and the ability to work on your own are crucial, though we will of course provide excellent on-going training and support.

Due to the nature of the role the ability to work nights is essential. You will cover a 25mile radius from your home address so access and use of a car is essential. Mileage is paid and NHS staff have the option of maintaining their NHS pensions. Access to a computer and the internet is required in order to meet mandatory training requirements.

To apply for this vacancy please include supporting information outlining your end of life care experience and why you would like to work as a Healthcare Assistant for Marie Curie.

For an informal discussion please contact Clinical Nurse Manager Charlotte Holland on 07515 135233
