We particularly encourage applications from individuals who are underrepresented in the Health and Social care sector.

Rainbows cares for hundreds of families every year from across the East Midlands who have a child or young person with a serious or terminal illness that means that their lives will be shorter than most.

We’re here for the whole family, offering comfort and compassion during tough times, providing the highest level of professional care until the end, and support after.

When you join Team Rainbows, not only will you receive a host of benefits  including free parking, health cash plan and subsidised meals - but you’ll be making a real difference to the lives of families across the East Midlands who are going through the toughest of times.
