We are sure that, should you join us, you will enjoy working as part of our team.
In return for your commitment we offer a full induction into your role, a competitive salary and benefits package, appropriate training, education and support and genuine opportunities for career progression.
Training and education
Keech Hospice Care is committed to the appropriate training and development of its staff and volunteers.
Supervision and support
Every member of staff receives regular supervision from their line manager.
We are also aware that, at times, staff experience personal or professional issues that affect their work. To address this, we have a dedicated support programme available to staff.
Contributory pension scheme
Anyone who is an active member of the NHS pension scheme when they join the charity can continue to make contributions to that scheme. For all other staff, we offer a pension scheme arranged through Standard Life.
Meals and refreshments
Our dining room offers a good choice of high quality catering at lunch times, including hot meals, soups, sandwiches and deserts. Vegetarian options are available every day and all of these are offered to staff at a very reasonable cost.
Location and environment
The hospice is set in beautiful countryside just north of Luton, in Bedfordshire. There is free parking available for staff at the hospice.
The town is served by excellent road and rail transport links and benefits from a thriving town centre, a strong local economy and a vibrant multi-cultural community.
Because of the catchment area we serve, some posts involve working at other locations across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire or Milton Keynes. Again all of these locations benefit from great transport links and a combination of excellent local amenities and fantastic countryside.
Staff social activities
Getting the job well done is very important to us here but it’s not all work and no play! Our social committee organises a range of activities for staff and their friends and family.
In addition, staff are able to make use of the charity’s hydrotherapy pool and spa free and invite up to three guests along for a small charge per person.
