Placement Opportunity- Hospice - for experienced third/fourth year

I have been contacted by an organisation (a hospice with whom we have well established links) that is looking for a couple of placement students who already have some experience of working with clients. Because this is a small organisation with demanding work then they would like students who already have or have had a placement and who have around 40-50 hours of prior experience with clients. They're looking for a year's commitment and are hoping for you to be able to take on about 3 clients.

I realise that if you already have a placement this might be a stretch but if you are interested in widening your experience or need more hours and have time then this could be a really valuable opportunity. Please contact me and I will pass on contact details for the agency.
