Are you looking to refresh in 2024? To step away from the frontline post the COVID-19 Pandemic? Ready for a work-life reset?
We currently have a number of exciting opportunities for full, part time and casual Registered Nurses to join our team. If you are passionate about caring for children and are seeking more purpose, fulfilment, and connection in your everyday work – Very Special Kids might be your perfect fit?
At Very Special Kids, we nurture and foster a culture where our team is empowered, supported and safe through the process of caring for children and families. As part of our diverse, expert team you will have access to education and training to enhance your personal and professional development; expert specialist resources; and the well-being support you need to make a bigger impact in the lives of children and their families.
The role will be located at our purpose built Very Special Kids House, located in Malvern. Our new state-of-the-art hospice (including hydrotherapy pool) is a world class facility that supports the complex needs of the children and young people in our care. You will enjoy one of Melbourne’s most unique purpose-built workplaces, while you work side by side with our favourite team member – Jaffa our Therapy Dog.
At Very Special Kids, we believe that all children and young people have the right to a quality of life, no matter how long or short their life may be. We are a highly respected organisation with circa 100 employees and over 600 volunteers who provide essential, free-of-charge, palliative care services for children and young people living with a life-limiting condition. Very Special Kids provides specialist services for the whole family, including counselling, peer support, bereavement support and respite and end of life care at Victoria’s only hospice for children and young people.
Our preference is that you will be a Registered Nurse with at least 2 + years post-graduation Registered Nursing experience, however if you have less experience but have a passion for providing holistic, family centred care we welcome your application.
Very Special Kids offers its employees a unique and rewarding environment including a supportive team, beautiful setting conveniently located to shops, parking and transport in Malvern, salary packaging, health & wellbeing initiatives, and targeted individual development plans.
At Very Special Kids, our goal is for our workforce to reflect the diverse community we serve. We continually seek to employ people of any gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, with a disability, Aboriginal Australians and varied cultural backgrounds.
