“This has been the best job I’ve ever had – I wish I’d found it earlier. Everything we all do is going towards those we care for. If we can make people smile in their last days, then that’s just lovely.” – Dawn, Redhill Shop Manager
What we are looking for
It’s our people who patients and relatives fondly remember, who cheer on supporters at events and chat to them in our shops, and who work together to provide outstanding services to everyone we care for and everyone who supports us.
We want everyone to feel welcome at St Catherine’s
We value diversity and we’re working hard to continue to improve our work in this area. We believe our differences can enrich the care we provide to local people. If you feel you have something valuable to bring to our hospice, whoever you are and whatever your background, we want to hear from you!
St Catherine’s is a local hospice, but we have big ambitions
We need the very best people to help us achieve these, so look for people who are:
Whether it’s with those we care for or each other, we’d like you to treat others with understanding, sensitivity, patience, respect and dignity.
We’re looking for people courageous enough to stand firm and not shy away from death, dying and bereavement.
Who bring the energy and optimism to make the most of every day no matter what their role.
We thrive on partnerships, working with and supporting others so we’d like you to enjoy doing that too.
We want people who are willing to share their skills with each other, our community and our peers.
“It’s lovely to support people as they find a way through their grief and loss to find moments of purpose and joy in the world again. Having colleagues with so much experience and knowledge also makes my job richer.” – Lauren, Counsellor
“We pride ourselves on giving individualised care. Our care is often about the little things but it’s those things that people remember. We’ve enabled people to have weddings and birthday parties here. If I and my team can create special memories for people and their relatives, it’s a privilege to do that.” – Shelley, Ward Matron
