Band 6 Agenda for change

At Rainbows, patient led care is at the centre of what we do, ensuring that our children and young people have fun, socialise and make the most of the time they have.

We are currently looking for qualified nurse (with relevant, demonstrable experience working with children and young people aged 0 to 30 years with complex care needs) to provide a high standard of nursing care in a family led environment. Palliative care experience is desirable. Excellent communication skills and the ability to demonstrate high standards of clinical care are essential. Successful applicants will have relevant, demonstrable post registration experience.

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People is a 12 bedded Nurse led unit based in Loughborough Leicestershire. We are a multidisciplinary team that provides holistic, family centred short beaks, palliative and end of life care for children and young people (aged 0-30) from across the East Midlands who have complex and palliative care needs, including those who are technology and ventilator dependent. Our Family Support Team offers bereavement and community support for the whole family.

“Working here at Rainbows allows me to deliver the nursing and care I always dreamed of. If I can make a small difference, make their day better in the smallest way, then that’s enough for me” Anne-Marie, Nurse.

In addition to NHS matched salaries, we offer a range of benefits including a health cash plan, free parking and, as we are a directional employer, the opportunity to continue with your NHS pension.
