Recruiting in East Sussex

Our focus at Chestnut Tree at the moment is to reach more children in East Sussex. We have always cared for children here, and are currently looking after 55 East Sussex children and their families, but we know there are more that we could be helping.

To help us reach them we have an ever-expanding team of Nurses, Care Support Workers and Fundraisers based at our office in Eastbourne. They focus solely on East Sussex, ensuring that our families have the best level of care possible and that anyone fundraising for us is also supported.

We currently have two roles on offer in East Sussex, for a Community Staff Nurse and for a Marketing Co-Ordinator.

Our Community Nurses offer respite and end of life care to children with life-shortening conditions and their families across the county. They visit families in their own homes, from Rye to Brighton and Eastbourne to Crowborough, offering care, support and advice throughout a child’s life.

We are looking for someone to join the existing team of two Nurses and one Care Support Worker. Ideally, we are looking for a nurse with experience of working in children’s palliative care, or with children with complex needs, and IV competence would be desirable, but we can offer further training to the right candidate. Anyone who thinks they have the right skills for this role can give my team a ring on 01903 781802 to find out more.

The Marketing Co-Ordinator role is a temporary part time role based mainly at the Eastbourne office. The Co-Ordinator is responsible for all of our communications and marketing in East Sussex, working with and supporting all areas of Chestnut Tree.

We are looking for someone with proven experience in PR and Marketing, and the ability to act independently, make decisions and build relationships. Janet Parsons, our Head of Communications and Marketing, would be happy to have an informal discussion with interested candidates. She can be contacted on 01903 706319.
