BECOME A NOAH’S ARK NURSE
TIME TO CARE –
A CHILD’S LIFETIME
We’re looking for paediatric nurses who want to spend more time with the babies, children and young people they look after – to help them make the most of every day. You’ll be based in our state-of-the-art children’s hospice building, The Ark, set in a north London nature reserve. It’s a place of laughter, play and real connection for children who are seriously unwell, with an atmosphere that’s both supportive and inclusive.
Palliative care experience is welcomed, but not essential. You will be given all the training you need to support children throughout their lives, and at the end of their lives.
If you’d like to arrange a call, or a visit to The Ark, to learn more about nursing at Noah’s Ark, please request a call with one of our senior nursing team using the form below. To view our open roles, click here.

As a paediatric palliative care nurse, I am always focused on what children can do and, along with the rest of the team, adapt play to tailor to the child’s strengths. It is important to celebrate the milestones they do meet and set up situations where this can happen.
If you do not give children the opportunity, we may never know what they are capable of. At Noah’s Ark, we celebrate everyone for who they are. Just because they have a life-limiting or life- threatening condition doesn’t mean they can’t have fun – every child deserves the opportunity to play.
Jordan Clover, Senior Head of Clinical Services
WHERE YOU’LL BE WORKING
Our support is offered wherever it is required – whether in the home, in the community or at The Ark.
Designed by families, for families, The Ark is a place of light and life, where you will find music, art, play and drama therapy; children blossoming in sensory and soft play rooms; and a fully accessible playground. The grounds offer wheelchair accessible outdoor experiences, including a Woodland Walk through a 7.5-acre nature reserve and a sensory walkway. We have created a space where children who are seriously unwell are accepted as they are, safe to play, explore, express themselves and build confidence.
