Current Vacancies

Some exciting opportunities have arisen to be part of our team at City Hospice.

As a charity, we provide essential community palliative care and counselling services to the people of Cardiff, but we are so much more that that. As a team we work together with pride and compassion and keep people at the heart of what we do.

We share and celebrate success and give people the tools to do their job. This is a joyful environment, which embraces diversity and positively encourages innovative ideas when it comes to fundraising – just ask our amazing nurses who raft down the Taff, or our incredible volunteers who support our annual Wag this Way sponsored walk.

Over the last 18 months we have spent time identifying what is important to us as a charity, defining our vision for the future, and establishing which skills are needed to enable us to realise our goals and as a result some new positions in our charity have arisen.

Assistant Store Manager

15 hours per week.

£19838 pro rata

City Hospice benefits from an experienced Board of Trustees, a team of highly motivated clinical and support staff, and approximately 275 volunteers.

The post-holder will assist the store manager to manage a busy charity store in Rhiwbina, one of the 6 operated by City Hospice in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. The post holder is expected to aid the store manager in achieving challenging sales targets, help recruit and effectively manage a team of volunteers and placements, promote local awareness of the charity, promote customer service excellence, and maintain high standards throughout the store at all times.
