About us

This is a fantastic opportunity to work at a leading Hospice who aspires to a world in which all dying people and those close to them have access to care and support, whenever and wherever they need it.

  • You will bring significant experience of undertaking risk assessments and management, identifying information risks and advising on mitigation of that risk.
  • You will be experienced in drafting, reviewing, maintaining policies, procedures, information security, risk and regulatory compliance awareness training.
  • It is important that you have excellent communication skills with the ability to influence colleagues.
  • You will have the ability to create and rollout training programs appropriate to the environment they are working in.
  • It is also important that you are able to work well independently and as part of a close-knit team.

If this sounds like you, we will be excited to hear from you!
