Your reward and benefits at Peace Hospice Care

We want to deliver outstanding care to our patients each and every day.  We want our staff to feel looked after too – to feel supported in achieving the work-life balance that works for them and in living a life, supported by our benefits, that helps them fulfil their aspirations and is mindful of their well-being.     

Come and work at Peace Hospice Care – this is what you will get:

Great place to work

Our staff tell us that they enjoy the work they do, believe in our aims, are proud to work for us and believe that what they do makes a difference.  What we do matters – it matters a great deal, to patients, their families and their carers.  Every single person who works or volunteers for Peace Hospice Care contributes to the great work we do.  So, if you want flexibility, to work in a friendly team that is supportive and to feel that what you are doing is really giving back to the community then come and work for Peace Hospice, we’re the place for you.
