An exciting opportunity has arisen for Healthcare Assistants to join our teams in Flintshire, Wrexham, Anglesey and Gwynedd.

The Marie Curie Planned Variable Service and the Rapid Response Service, in partnership with Betsi Cadwaladr, delivers both planned, rapid and flexible out of hours nursing care and support for terminally ill patients and their carers. 

We are a community based palliative care service whose aim is to respond quickly to support palliative patients and their carers within the community, usually in the patients’ own home. We aim to prevent inappropriate admission to hospital and the choice for the patient of preferred place of care.

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 are an out of hours service covering evenings and nights including weekends and Bank Holidays. A driver's license and the use of a car insured for business use are essential.

You will need an NVQ Level 2 or equivalent in Health and Social Care and you must have relevant experience in Palliative Care.

In return, you will have the opportunity to access a generous portfolio of training and education, management support, clinical supervision and an occupational pension scheme (NHS pension transferable) as well as generous enhancements:

£11.87 per hour Weekday Nights 
£12.86 Weekend nights and bank holidays 

Please state what hours/contract you are interested in on your application.

We offer expert care, guidance and support, to help them get the most from the time they have left.

Marie Curie is committed to its values, which underpin our work.  We take stringent steps to ensure that the people who join our organisation through employment or volunteering, are suitable for their roles and are committed to safeguarding all our people from harm. This includes our staff, volunteers and all those who use or come into contact with our services. We are dedicated to creating not just a safe place to work but also a supportive and rewarding one.
