We have a strong, effective Board of Trustees which takes responsibility for overseeing the Hospice’s strategy and performance, working closely with the Hospice Leadership Team (HLT). Our Trustees are critical in enabling us to achieve our ambitions and financial stability and sustainability are key to all our plans. At a time when the country is facing financial challenge and when our income streams are potentially fragile, it is vitally important that we can attract new Trustees whose commercial acumen, strategic ability and entrepreneurial outlook will enable us to remain agile and financially robust.
You need not be a qualified accountant to join our Finance and Business Committee. What you will bring are proven commercial skills which will help us grow and diversify our income and protect our services. We are open to people’s professional backgrounds and are keen to attract candidates who may not traditionally have considered a role on our Board.
Your insight and experience of leading in a commercial environment whether in the public, private or third sectors is what we are looking for. You will be a natural collaborator who will constantly encourage us to be the best we can be. As an organisation ranked in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For, people are at the heart of what we do. We are seeking Board members who recognise the importance and contribution of all – patients, their families, those who work and volunteer for us and our wider community.
You will join a team which lives and breathes our Hospice values of Caring, Aspiring and Professional. We challenge ourselves and one another to ensure we make robust decisions for the benefit of all of those we serve. If you believe you have the experience and qualities to become a Trustee of St Gemma’s Hospice, we look forward very much to hearing from you.
