There’s never been a more exciting time to join the Willen Hospice team as we continue to develop and expand our services so we can care for more people in Milton Keynes, in more ways.
Willen Hospice has been caring for our local community for over 40 years, we met with just some of our young staff who are helping us shape the future of the Hospice and why they love being a part of the Willen family.
Meg – 22, IPU Ward Hostess
“I worked at Camphill for 3 years before joining Willen Hospice, and I wanted to try something new and different. At the same time I still wanted to provide care, as that is what I enjoy doing. I heard about the position as Ward Hostess, and I have loved it ever since. “The teams I work with are great, and I enjoy interacting with patients and their families. My friends think what I do is amazing, and that they couldn’t work here as they would find it hard caring for someone at end of their life, but in reality it’s very rewarding.”
Harriet – 20, Events and Marketing Apprentice
“This role has given me the opportunity to start a career, as well as helping the community and those in need. My favourite part of working for Willen Hospice, is feeling like one big family. Together we help care for patients and families in the community, whether that’s directly or by helping to raise funds. I’ve really enjoyed my apprenticeship and the support I’ve received from the team here has been incredible.”
Aakifah – 25, Trusts & Foundations Manager
“It was really important for me to join an organisation that really believed in their cause and that I will also love to be a part of. For me, the best part about working here is how lovely and friendly everyone is. The work that our teams do is incredibly difficult, but there’s always a good ‘family spirit’ feeling. “My friends and family are always commenting on how this must be a beautiful place to work. We’re incredibly lucky with our stunning location, based right on Willen Lake.”
Tom – 25, Senior Business Development Executive
“I was immediately drawn to the role because it required the same skill set that I had been building on in my previous job, but with the opportunity for progression and career development. My Grandma was also cared for by Willen Hospice so, this was motivation enough to apply. “I’m never bored! Whether I’m leading meetings with multi-national corporate companies, discussing CSR policies, helping out with our amazing events, and attending local networking events. Ultimately, you get a feel good factor that can’t be achieved in the private sector. When you see money coming in that you know will contribute towards caring for terminally ill people and supporting their families, it is extremely rewarding.”
Wherever you are in your career, you’ll be welcome at Willen Hospice. Our People Services team have some exciting projects in the pipeline as we look to further support and develop our people across our charity.
