Following our last successful recruitment fair we are holding another one on Saturday 23rd March.

Join us at our Heald Green hospice from 10am-2pm and find out all there is to know about life as a nurse at the hospice, with the potential for interview on the day.

We’re proud that we have such a wonderful team of highly professional, caring staff here at the hospice, who are passionate about what they do.

Our staff nurses care for people with complex conditions and healthcare needs, so we are looking for registered nurses that are up for a challenge and are committed to delivering specialist and individualised care in a palliative care setting.

We always aim to care for the whole person, meeting their unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs to help and support them during what can be a very difficult time in their lives. We understand everyone is an individual, and that’s something that’s really important to us.

I fulfilled my dream when I joined St Ann’s two years ago. I was a student nurse here in 2004 and loved it. It’s an amazing place and I am proud to be back now as a ward manager.

It’s really awe inspiring to see the strength and positivity of the patients that come to St Ann’s. Until I worked here, I thought I had an understanding of what a hospice was, but even I, as a nurse, was surprised by what an amazing – and often incredibly happy – place it is.

I’ve taken on many fundraising events and runs for St Ann’s as I see every day the real, tangible difference that the money raised for our charity by supporters makes.  Whether that’s in helping us care for a family as a loved one approaches the end of their life, providing valuable support for people who have recently been diagnosed, or giving rehabilitative treatments to someone who wants nothing more than to go back to their own home, every penny actually does impact real people’s lives.

We’re all so proud of what we do, and we’re looking for more nurses to come and be a part of our amazing team. If you are a registered nurse and looking for a new challenge and you are passionate about patient care, please come along to find out more about us, and even have an interview on the day.

We’d really love to hear from people to join our fantastic team of nurses who can help us continue delivering the care that makes St Ann’s such a special place.
