This is a new service which will expand. It is likely that more supervision hours will be available in the future.

Be part of an exciting new initiative that’s part of our national Information and Support Service.

Marie Curie is launching a new, national telephone bereavement service for people affected by a death from terminal illness. The service will be coordinated by staff through our existing Support Line service and be delivered by a group of trained bereavement support volunteers. It is due to begin in late 2019.

The Clinical Supervisor will be part of a small service delivery team and will be specifically responsible for providing individual telephone supervision to the bereavement support volunteers who are working with clients in receipt of level 2 bereavement support (NICE – Supportive and Palliative care guidance, 2004). This role is home based.

The Clinical Supervisor will also play an important role in informing the development of the new telephone service to ensure Marie Curie is providing a consistent, high-quality and safe bereavement provision for the public through specially-trained and clinically supported volunteers. They will help improve and innovate the service based on best practice and clinical knowledge and experience.

The role holder will work closely with the Information and Support Bereavement Service Coordinator and report in to the Support Line Manager.

The Marie Curie Information and Support service provides vital assistance for people affected by terminal illness across the UK. Each month over 100,000 users access our services, with over 10,000 of those each year contacting our Support Line team in Pontypool.
