North London Hospice are looking to appoint a Specialist Palliative Care Social Worker – Bereavement Services. We are at an exciting stage of development and this is an opportunity to join us as we develop our approach to the Hospice’s psychosocial care.

The Social Work team is part of Supportive Care services, which also include volunteering and spiritual care. This role will help to complete the team, overseeing volunteers pre- and post-bereavement to ensure sustained support.

If you are looking for a change and the opportunity to further develop your Social Work skills and experience, you might be interested in applying for this post which would allow you to take our current Bereavement Service to another level of excellence.

You will have a recognised health or social care qualification, experience of training adults, supervision and coordination and working closely with volunteers offering emotional support.
