Massage Therapist (qualified)

We are looking for a qualified massage therapist for 3 months temporary cover, to be based in the Ronald McDonald Family Room in Starship Hospital. Caregivers come to the Family Room to have some respite from being on the ward with their child. As well as offering refreshments and someone to talk to, we offer the opportunity of a short massage to help relieve stress and give them some attention.


We are looking for a qualified massage therapist who is happy to donate two to three hours of their time on a Monday morning to help relieve the stress for someone caring for a child in hospital. The visitors to our family room are undergoing a very challenging time, with their child undergoing critical care in hospital. The opportunity of a short massage, generally neck and shoulders, is offered to visitors to help relieve stress and give them some time to themselves.
We are looking for someone who is empathetic, warm-hearted, a good listener and who wants to support others on their journey. There is the possibility this volunteer role can extend beyond the 3 months.
Tea, coffee and a snack provided.
