Make your work count!

If you want personal fulfilment from a career with real meaning, open your eyes to Rowcroft Hospice. We offer purposeful work in a uniquely progressive environment and we have an exciting opportunity to lead our 12 bedded Inpatient Unit (IPU) in Torquay, Devon.

As our IPU Matron you will be a registered nurse with exceptional leadership and people management skills who can lead and support our experienced Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Volunteers to provide exemplary patient care.

Your experience as a palliative care nurse will enable you to lead your team to work collaboratively with the MDT.  You will have a detailed oversight of the care requirements of all patients being cared for in our IPU and provide expert palliative and nursing knowledge to the team with your hands-on leadership style.  You will also ensure we fully monitor and meet our key performance indicators.

You will be supported by our Deputy Modern Matrons, who you will line manage as well as our IPU administration team, and you will build supportive collaborative relationships with the wider Hospice teams.

What’s in it for you? You will be empowered to lead the IPU to excellent standards of care.  You’ll be supported and encouraged to innovate and to try new things.  Our scope of work and our confident organisational vision creates opportunities for progress and development, and we work together with passion and pride in an environment where people are caring, considerate and welcoming.  It can be tough! We don’t shy away from that, but you’ll clearly see the importance and impact of your work and feel recognised and part of something remarkable.
