  • ‘Flexibility that suits my life and my other commitments.’
  • ‘I really like that the money made by the care agency goes to help fund the hospice.’
  • ‘Very approachable office/ managerial staff. Flexible working. Good length of client appointments to get things done. Varied tasks.’
  • ‘To work in a supportive team where I feel valued. Knowing that I contribute to making a positive difference in people’s lives, not only to our clients but also to the individuals and families that receive support from the Hospice.’
