Lead for St Christopher’s Centre for Awareness and Response to End of Life (St Christopher’s CARE)
Hours / Tenure: 36 hours per week (Full time) initially on a 2 Year Fixed Term Contract
As the Lead for St Christopher’s CARE, you will be responsible for leading a broad and talented team of staff, volunteers and community members who provide learning opportunities via our new state of the art Centre for Awareness and Response to End of Life Care (CARE) that opened earlier this year. You will excel at identifying new opportunities to help people learn about death, dying and loss, creating exciting programmes that build new skill and confidence in this area, developing strategic partnerships within and beyond the hospice, that support the delivery and funding of the programmes and building new teams to respond.
We are not necessarily looking for candidates immersed in palliative care, however, to be successful you will need to be passionate about end of life issues and be keen to drive societal change, alongside the development of related services and professionals involved in their delivery. It is important to us that you are a strong team player, someone who is innovative, creative, and up for a challenge.
You will believe in the value of learning as a means of transforming care and services and ultimately the experience of those using them. Your experience with establishing and developing a new exciting service or similar, will be key to this role, in addition to previous work in an education/training provider context. You will be skilled at establishing effective teams and have knowledge of quality management that support the achievement of learning outcomes and improvements in clinical practice.
If this sounds like you, we would be excited to hear from you!
