Mary Potter Hospice provides free palliative care for the people of the Wellington Region. We have a 12 bedded Inpatient Unit, and a strong Community team. We take a multi-disciplinary approach in order to provide holistic care for whānau.

Our core values of Respect, Compassion, Dignity, Hospitality and Stewardship are very important to us and we apply these to the people who work here as much as our patients and whānau.

This is a unique role for a unique individual who has a commitment to ensure a safe and appropriate service is in place for whānau towards the end of life and in bereavement. Your understanding of, and ability to move comfortably in te Ao Māori is crucial to the success of this role. Your experience working in the health and palliative care sectors is valuable.

We offer the chance to develop your expertise; we have a comprehensive education programme; free EAP services; wellness incentives e.g. a contribution to a gym membership; free flu vaccinations; the opportunity to work alongside highly experienced multi-disciplinary teams, in an environment that lets you make a difference.
