Develop your nursing career with North Devon Hospice

Our nursing team are proud to support and care for patients and their families at their most vulnerable time.  We have a great opportunity for a part time registered nurse to join our highly committed multi-disciplinary team of staff and volunteers, who work seamlessly together to make the care provided very special.  Experience in palliative care is desirable, however, we will support you to develop specialist palliative care skills. The role could be a potential stepping stone for anyone wanting to develop their career as a clinical nurse specialist in an inpatient setting. 

We highly value our working environment and our seven bedded unit is based within the beautiful grounds at Deer Park in Barnstaple. We have outside seating space within the gardens which is available for everyone to use. We have a range of benefits available for our staff including free parking, flexible working, counselling and support services and other health and wellbeing activities such as reflexology and yoga.

Like any organisation, it’s the people who make a difference, so why not join us and make a difference to our patients and their families.
