Haven House Children's Hospice is proud to have been recognised as one of the best not-for-profit employers in the UK. In the outstanding awards, organised by The Sunday Times, we came 26th place with a two-star accreditation for leadership and staff engagement. 

At Haven House we know the care and service we provide to our children, young people and families is only as good as the people that work here. That’s why we look for people who connect with our values and can live them every day.

We believe our colleagues should be kind, good listeners, have lots of common sense, be compassionate and patient and most importantly be an advocate of quality and excellence across our service regardless of their role within the team. Read our Vision, Mission and Values.

In return, we offer a package that provides a number of benefits, including, training, a pension (continuity of NHS pension subject to meeting criteria), interest free season ticket loan, 27 days annual leave plus public holidays or Agenda for Change long service holiday (if applicable), cycle to work scheme and the flexibility needed for a healthy work life-balance. It is important to us to pay the London Living Wage as part of our values and people strategy and feel strongly that all our employees should at the very least, be able to afford the essentials in life.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are an equal opportunity employer and our aim is to have a workforce that reflects the diverse community we serve.

Under the Gender Pay Gap Information Regulations 2017, organisations that employ over 250 people are required to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees.

Although Haven House does not meet the current qualifying criteria due to lower staff numbers, we remain committed to recruiting the ‘best’ person for the role irrelevant of their gender. We will continue to ensure that all our recruitment is free from any gender bias.

The hospice is based in beautiful grounds in Woodford Green, offering on site parking or easy access from the Central line.
