Overview of role

Would you like a job that allows you to support people in your local community?

No two days days are the same in Community Engagement. One day we could be training volunteers, and the next day visiting somebody living with a life limiting condition in their own home who needs our support.

We are looking for somebody who is great with people, can effectively manage their time and has strong administrative skills.

St Clare Hospice is a charity that provides specialist palliative care to patients and families in West Essex and the East Hertfordshire borders. Our community-based services are aimed at supporting people’s overall wellbeing and we are looking for a Compassionate Communities Coordinator to join our amazing Community Engagement team.

Please read the job description (link below) for further details.

If you would you like to help to develop Hospice services, then we would like to hear from you.

In return for your commitment, we offer a full induction into your role, a competitive salary and benefits package, company sick pay scheme and contributory pension scheme.

For an informal discussion or more information, please contact: Tracey Hall

Head of Community Engagement & Volunteering
