While based from the Hospice UK Office in London you will also be involved closely with the project team in Belfast and with the ECHO Institute in Albuquerque. The ECHO methodology demonstrates “everyone a teacher, everyone a learner” philosophy that lies at the heart of ECHO, and which has been so important through the pandemic for our Hospice Sector.

Our values are at the heart of everything we do, we work in collaboration, with compassion, are inclusive, innovative and knowledgeable.
The established ECHO team will support you, including the Project Support Officer (your line manager) and Programme Manager.

This role will provide an opportunity to work with a number of external stakeholders to coordinate our Hospice UK ECHO Networks, and manage the shared learning from ECHO sessions through our digital platforms.

Strong attention to detail with a proactive solution based approach to work.
Experience in MS365, ZOOM, databases and content management systems is essential for this role, as well as ability to develop content for e-newsletters or social media posts.
