Bereavement Support Worker – Jessie May

Sorry, this advert is now closed. Click here to view our live vacancies.

The team at Pear Tree Recruitment have supported Jessie May for over 6 years with various fundraising initiatives.  We are now proud to be recruiting a Bereavement Support Worker to join their amazing team.

Jessie May provides a hospice at home service across the South West to over 300 children with life-limiting conditions.  To continue making an unbelievable difference, they are looking for a Bereavement Support Worker to assist with coordinating the bereavement service moving forwards and to work closely with a team of specialist palliative care nurses to support bereaved families.    

The Bereavement Support Worker is an essential role – being the point of contact to new and existing families and supporting them at all stages of their child’s journey in life, in death, and in bereavement.  The work will involve working alongside families in their own home coming to terms with their child’s death and the feelings and emotions that surround this, therefore a high level of emotional intelligence and sensitivity is required.

This role requires someone who has experience of managing a caseload, ideally within bereavement and palliative care or disability.  The successful applicant will need to be friendly and approachable, as well as highly organised with a ‘can-do’ attitude.  Please note, travel will be required to meet with families in their homes, so access to a car is required.   

If this amazing charity sounds like one you would love to be part of, please get in touch or apply.  Interviews will be taking place over the next few weeks, to start ASAP.
