Director of Care

Being there for all the family is what we do, do you want to be there too?

Our patients are at the heart of every single thing we do. As a £6m local charity, we have over 160 paid staff and over 500 volunteers who all work passionately and tirelessly to contribute to every facet of North Devon Hospice life. It is thanks to our staff and volunteers that the care we provide is so special. A key element to this is the passion and dedication shown by our care staff every single day. This care was recently recognised as being Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission.

As the Director of Care you will hold a critical role in leading all aspects of our care and education and it couldn’t be a more exciting time to join us. Having recently seen the amazing development of our highly regarded Hospice to Home service and a brilliant re-design of our supportive care programme, we are now looking for an experienced end of life care professional to join us. We are about to develop several ground breaking projects including a truly integrated care model with our partners at Northern Devon Healthcare Trust to the development of our new five year strategy.

If you would enjoy leading and inspiring our care and education teams to ensure that North Devon Hospice remains a dynamic and exciting place to work and that our care remains nothing short of outstanding then we would love to hear from you.
