St Wilfrid’s Hospice provides end of life support to the population of Eastbourne and the surrounding parts of East Sussex, from our stunning hospice building and through our highly skilled community teams. We are rated an ‘outstanding’ provider by the Care Quality Commission and have a clear vision of reaching increasing numbers of local patients and their families, in close collaboration with our community.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced retail manager with strong leadership skills and commercial awareness to join our Retail team. The successful individual will be based in our Hailsham shop.
