We are keen to hear about your personal and professional career aspirations and to meet with you to talk about and show you what exciting opportunities are available across EACH.

We can answer any questions you have about the working environment, skills required and the continued professional development in providing children’s hospice care.

We are currently recruiting for care assistants for our hospice service at Quidenham in Norfolk (relocation due June 2019 to our new hospice, ​the ​nook, near Poringland, Norwich). We are also looking for senior care assistants at our Milton Hospice.

This role will involve shift work (including long days) to cover 24 hours / 7 days per week / 365 days per year.

We provide care and support for all family members in our hospice buildings and in families’ homes.  We also often ‘in-reach’ schools and hospitals to work alongside our statutory sector colleagues.

The hospice environment offers free parking, tranquil surroundings and subsidised meals. As a values driven organisation, with a national and international reputation, we offer our staff a competitive package (including NHS pension if already contributing), extensive development and training opportunities, generous annual leave entitlement and a flexible work-life balance.

We offer flexible working opportunities including long shifts, part-time and flexible working patterns, such as weekend working only.

  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum

  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum

  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
