Compton Hospice has a dedicated and committed team of over 800 volunteers and almost 300 employees, encompassing a wide range of disciplines. Excellence in patient care is achieved through their strong commitment to organisational values and integrated working across all areas of operation.
We recognise that our people are our greatest asset and encourage them to develop to their full potential. By providing a broad range of education, training and development opportunities to both employees and volunteers, we encourage continuous personal and professional development and lifelong learning, thus ensuring that everyone has the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to support the mission and vision of the organisation.
We are dedicated to providing equality of opportunity throughout all areas of operation, and strive to establish a diverse working group in an environment that enables us to provide a comprehensive service that is relevant to the community in which we work. As such, we encourage applicants of any age, gender, marital status, religion, race, ethnic origin, colour, disability or sexual orientation.
Full and part-time employment opportunities, as well as volunteering, may be available in the following areas:
- Patient care and family support

Potential applicants should note that because of the nature of the work undertaken by the Hospice, all volunteer and employee posts are exempt from the provisions of Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 by virtue of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemptions) Order 1975 and therefore may not withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are ‘spent’ under the provisions of the Act. It is our policy to check with the Criminal Records Bureau for possible criminal background on any person wishing to work in a capacity which allows them access to children and vulnerable adults. However, we undertake to treat each applicant fairly by taking into account the circumstances of the conviction in relation to the nature of the work involved.
