As a Healthcare Assistant with Marie Curie, you'll be there for people in their time of greatest need. We provide free specialist care and support to patients with terminal illnesses whilst offering vital emotional support for their families. It's all about giving them the best possible quality of life. The support we offer is tailored to meet individuals' medical, social, spiritual and emotional needs.

We have an exciting opportunity for health care assistants to join our team in North West London. You will be working independently across all our commissioned night services and be part of a team providing excellent individualized care, enabling patients to be cared for and die in their own homes surrounded by their families and loved ones.

The successful applicant will be able to use IT competently and have the ability to stay awake throughout the night and be willing to travel up to a distance of 25 miles to start your shift on time at a patient’s home at 10pm and finish at 7am


Ideally you will hold a NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care or be able to demonstrate equivalent/relevant (clinical) experience and the willingness to learn/work towards reaching a Level 3 or further qualifications. Relevant experience in Palliative or End of Life care is desirable but not essential. You will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to work well within a team, use initiative and organise your workload and have excellent communication skills.


A driver’s license is essential and the use of a car with business insurance.

In return, we offer access to a generous portfolio of training and education, management support, clinical supervision and an occupational pension scheme (NHS pension transferable). Please note: Marie Curie is not a NHS employer however the candidate can continue with NHS pension (subject to eligibility).

If you are looking for a new challenge and the opportunity to make a difference to people at the end of their lives we would love to hear from you.
