Head of Learning and Development

We are looking for a highly motivated individual who is passionate about education, learning and development and who recognises the importance of these core areas in improving quality, professional practice and the capability of staff and volunteers.

If you want to make a difference, and help shape the future of an award-winning charity that puts the care and wellbeing of patients and families at its heart, then this could be the position for you.

This is key role in a charity that aspires to deliver the highest standards of care to patients and families.  You will be pivotal in reaching out to, and linking with, regional education professionals and supporting us in improving the provision of end of life and palliative care education and research.

This is an exciting and challenging role, one which will require you to create and promote a culture of learning, enquiry, research and innovation at our Hospice.  Additionally, we want you to reach out to, and work with, other hospice leaders and to help drive forward a systematic approach to identifying and responding to learning and development needs – an approach that makes an impact for us and to the wider community.

You will devise the strategy for our learning and development across both our Corporate and Clinical teams and lead multi-professional education and practice development opportunities for our charity.  As our Head of Learning and Development you will help us deliver on our dynamic and ambitious five-year strategic plan.

A strategic thinker you will see, and understand, the big picture but be equally happy delivering quality training and understand, too, the need to focus on results, impact and outcomes.

Your support, insight, experience, forward-looking and innovative approach will support us in preparing for the challenges that lay ahead, designing, delivering and leading, impactful and inspirational educational programmes for staff (Clinical and non-Clinical) and volunteers as well as health and other professionals.

This is a big role and we need someone with big ambition, drive and energy who will inspire, lead and deliver on education, learning and development – someone who will bring ideas but ensure they are anchored by our strategic focus and reflect our values.

The deadline for receipt of applications is strictly 12 Noon on Friday 26th June 2020.

Peace Hospice Care (PHC) has been supporting people with a life-limiting illness and their families from across the community for 25 years.  Ours is an organisation that strives continuously to demonstrate our values which are embedded in our recruitment and selection processes and we are fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in both our workforce and within our culture. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society, and for every employee and volunteer to feel respected and supported to perform at their best, and achieve their full potential.  We welcome applications from everyone in our community; please contact a member of the HR team for more information on our commitment to deliver equality throughout a diverse workforce.

We hold a diverse range of fundraising and social events, providing a great way to get to know other employees, socialise and have a lot of fun as well as support the ethos of the Hospice in delivering high quality care by excellent team working.
