Register your interest and do not miss the opportunity to work for EACH

A pioneering children’s charity is launching a new e-alert to help talented professionals stay updated about its latest job vacancies.

The simple online form has made it easier than ever to find out about the latest roles at Investors in People-accredited East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

It allows job-hunters to register their interest in specific roles, either supporting children and families within the care and facilities teams, helping raise vital funds, being part of the retail team or working in EACH’s different support teams.

EACH will then send monthly jobs e-bulletins, outlining the latest vacancies, and get in touch when your preferred roles are advertised.

Current vacancies being advertised include the roles of Clinical Nurse Specialist, Care Assistant and Cleaner.

EACH organisation cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, and their families, across East Anglia.

It has three hospice locations, including one at Milton, near Cambridge.

Nicky Kendrick, EACH Director of People, said: “We’re always on the lookout for talented professionals and our simple new online process, allowing people to register their interest, makes it easy to stay informed and in the loop about job opportunities here.

“Our organisation is an exciting, forward-thinking place to work and no two days are the same, with lots of new challenges.

“We offer a variety of opportunities to deliver high-quality care and support, or to further someone’s career in one of numerous key support roles.

“Milton is a perfect place to develop skills. It offers an inclusive, pleasant, well-supported environment where successful applicants will be working alongside committed and professional colleagues. We also have a dedicated army of 1,600 volunteers across the charity and always have voluntary roles available, particularly in our shops based across East Anglia.”

When completing the form, people can use a dropdown menu to select one or multiple roles of interest.

In terms of care, these include Nurse, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Care Assistant, Counsellor, Family Support Practitioner, Family Therapist, Art Therapist, Music Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, Play Specialist, Groups and Events Coordinator and Chaplain.

Support roles, meanwhile, include Education, Facilities, Finance, Fundraising, Human Resources, IT/Information Services, Marketing and Communications, Volunteer and Retail Services.

“Working for our organisation is hugely rewarding, knowing you’re making a real difference to babies, children, young people and their families,” added Nicky.

“We offer the highest level of care and support as they face incredibly complex health, social and emotional issues.

“As an employer, we’re committed to promoting equality and respecting diversity.

“We actively welcome applicants from all sections of the community and are particularly keen to hear from under-represented communities at EACH.

“Anyone interested in finding out more can also come and see us at the Cambridge Jobs Fair, at The Guildhall, on 23rd March. It’s a great opportunity to come and have a chat with our friendly team!”

EACH’s hospice at Milton is rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) while the organisation was awarded internationally-recognised Investors in People (IIP) accreditation in September.

It has a workforce of 350 employees and 50 bank staff across its hospice locations, 44 retail outlets – including Histon Road and Cherry Hinton Road, both in Cambridge, Cherry Hinton, Ely, Huntingdon, Soham and Whittlesey – and a central services team at Milton.

Benefits of joining the organisation include a competitive salary and holiday entitlement, flexible and hybrid working (where feasible) and wellbeing support, free onsite parking, subsidised meals and an allowance to continue your NHS pension (if applicable).

Notes to Editors

“Without EACH I really don’t believe we would have made it this far together as a family. They make a really hard time just that little easier to deal with.”

  • We care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, and support their families.
  • We offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies – at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich).
  • Our family-centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management support, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies and counselling, all meeting the individual needs of the child, young person and whole family.
  • We are recognised as leaders in our field, with a reputation for excellence and commitment to pioneering development and innovation.
  • We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income and this year need to raise £5.5 million from fundraising and £5.4 million in income from our shops. The year before the pandemic we received just 16% of our total income from statutory sources.
