Who we’re looking for

We welcome volunteers from every part of the Nottinghamshire community. Volunteering is a great way to feel part of a team and make a positive difference. You can volunteer as often or as little as you wish, in roles which are meaningful, flexible and most importantly enjoyable.

Who We Are Looking For

Nottinghamshire Hospice is fully committed to supporting and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion best practice within our staff and volunteer workforce, as well as with our patients and supporters. We warmly welcome those from all backgrounds – this diversity is important for our journey and values and enriches the services we offer.

We particularly welcome applicants from minoritised ethnic communities, LGBTQ+ communities, applicants under the age of 40, applicants with disabilities, and male applicants for clinical roles, as they are currently under-represented within our workforce.
