When you think about working for a hospice care charity, you will probably immediately think of doctors and nurses.  They are, of course, an essential part of the care that we provide to adults with a life limiting illness in Dorset, but we could not do what we do without an incredible hardworking team behind them, both staff and volunteers.

We are a friendly organisation, where each employee and volunteer is valued for the contribution and the difference they make.

The jobs and careers available include clinical positions in the community and at our Inpatient Unit, therapists, counsellors and social workers, catering, housekeeping and maintenance, within our retail operation which comprises 24 shops and outlets across Dorset, and head office functions such as fundraising, finance, administration, and marketing.

If you would like to join #TeamWeldmar as a volunteer, we would love to hear from you, whether you’re interested in lending a hand in one of our shops, serving meals to patients, providing counselling to loved ones, or helping out at a fundraising event.
