Here at Naomi House and Jacksplace, a leading children and young adults charity, we have been providing expert hospice care to families across the south for over 25 years.

Your experience will be gained in a senior HR role in an organisation with diverse environments, providing advice and guidance at all levels. An understanding of care services and an appreciation of working with volunteers would also be a great asset. But your passion needs to be people as you champion our Values to be Agile, Supportive, Proud, Inclusive, Responsive and Encouraging, to ensure that we all ASPIRE to deliver the promises we make to the people we care for, our colleagues and our supporters.

We face the same challenges as any public sector or commercial organisation in times of social, political and economic changes. But the dedication and creativity of our people means we tackle those challenges with determination. If you share our values and can demonstrate the same determination, we’d like to hear from you.

This is a permanent, full-time role working 37.5 hours per week.
