Nursing at Weldmar Hospicecare

There are lots of different nursing positions at Weldmar Hospicecare.  Almost 80% of our care takes place out and about in the community in Dorset, caring for patients in their own homes, with further care provided at our in-patient unit in Dorchester.

Even if there are no vacancies for nurses currently listed on our Jobs page, we would be interested in hearing from you to discuss future opportunities.

“It’s everything I wanted to do when I became a nurse”


With the stunning Jurassic Coast, incredible local scenery, picturesque villages and vibrant local towns, Dorset really is an incredible place to live and work. The nature of our nursing means a very low nurse to patient ratio and the ability to make a difference by spending time with patients and their loved ones.

There are plenty of benefits of taking up a nursing role at Weldmar, including extensive in-house training and development, and career progression opportunities. There are subsidised meals in our Orangery restaurant, and even free parking at our picturesque in-patient unit in Dorchester. A free counselling service is also available for all staff for work and non-work matters.
