Why work for Sue Ryder?

We've been providing expert care for over 65 years. Not only do we want to put personalisation at the heart of our care provision, it’s also at the heart of our organisation, in our people, and in what we do.

Every single one of our people is different and it's our variety that makes us interesting.

Across the UK in our care hubs and community support, charity shops and offices, we have:

  • 3,000 staff
  • 12,000 volunteers
  • seven registered hospices
  • four neurological care centres
  • homecare and neurological care in Scotland
  • 450+ shops
  • three office locations.

We're committed to making Sue Ryder a great place to work for our people, each and every one of them. Above all, our people are proud. Whoever they are, whatever they do, they’re proud of the expert and compassionate care that we provide as a charity.

Many people believe that once you have a life-changing illness there’s little left. We don’t.
