Qualified specialists are sought to help set up a new palliative care centre

Our partners in South Asia are looking for qualified palliative care personnel to join their multidisciplinary team.

They are committed to develop a palliative care and chronic disease centre over the next three years, providing clinical services, research, education and training.

Our partners are urgently seeking qualified palliative care personnel – for example, specialist nurse, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, and other disciplines, as well as a palliative care medical specialist to assist in providing a comprehensive palliative care service based at their hospital, including clinical services [consultative, 14-bed inpatient care for adults and children, outpatient, day therapy and community services], working closely in a multidisciplinary team environment.

All expatriate volunteers [applying for an official visa] require:

  • A Master’s degree [or equivalent] in a relevant subject and at least five years of experience in a related field.
  • The desire to combine faith and technical expertise to equip, encourage and strengthen the capacity of others.
  • A good understanding of, and full commitment to intercultural Christian service.
  • Intercultural training/experience.


We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of the people we serve, our partners, our volunteers, and our staff. We believe that every child or adult we come into contact with has the right to be protected from all forms of harm and abuse. Our recruitment and selection processes are in line with our Safeguarding Policy and the SCHR Misconduct Disclosure Scheme, which CMS is a member of as part of our commitment to safeguarding.    


Our core values of being pioneering, relational, faithful and evangelistic are integral to everything we do, and we work hard to ensure that every member of staff is valued, supported and encouraged to continually learn and develop their skills.
