WHAT MAKES NOAH’S ARK A SPECIAL PLACE TO WORK?
Whether working in care, HR, fundraising or finance, you’ll know you’re helping to improve the quality of life and experience of death for seriously unwell children and their families.
You’ll be working with a team of talented, passionate, caring individuals who are committed to making Noah’s Ark a centre of excellence and redefining paediatric palliative care. We’re an award-winning organisation; we’ve won four national charity awards in the past two years, including ‘Charity of the Year’.
You’ll love the physical and cultural environment. The Ark is a brand new building, set in a stunning 7.5-acre nature reserve. The atmosphere is fast-paced, supportive and inclusive; here, everyone is encouraged to do their best work, regardless of gender, race, religion, age, or background.
NURSING AT NOAH’S ARK
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

“This is a place of life, of light, of joy and of play. This is a place that can let your children be more than the difficulties they face and are labelled with. This is a place where specialist care is offered, a place for families to connect, a place where the most precious of memories will be made.”
