Trustee Recruitment

St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice

 

St Luke’s cares for people in mid & south Cheshire who are suffering from life threatening illnesses. We offer specialist treatment, care, advice and support to patients and their families each year.

 

If you have experience in the private, public or voluntary sectors and an enthusiasm to make a difference, we can offer you the opportunity to join our Trustee Board and make a positive contribution to the work we do.  We are particularly interested in CV’s from you if you are in the Legal and Accountancy Profession or have a background in Nursing / Social Care at a Senior Management / Strategic Level. 

 

We particularly welcome applicants from those who are underrepresented on our Trustee Board, such as women, disabled people and individuals from black and minority ethnic communities.

 

You will need to demonstrate a range of competencies including strategic thinking, team working, excellent communications skills, a challenging approach and a strong judgement. We are looking for Trustees who have the dedication, commitment and desire to improve our services and help us to achieve our goals in line with the ethos and values.

 

Trustees are expected to contribute on average two days per month; formal board meetings are held in the early evenings every other month at the Hospice. Trustee positions are un-remunerated although reasonable expenses will be paid. This role offers great scope for professional development, exposure at Board level and the opportunity to support the development of local services.

 

Successful applicants will also be required to undertake a DBS check. 

 

For an informal discussion about the role of a Trustee, please contact Alice Eeley, HR Assistant on 01606 555818 who will arrange a call with Mike Ridley, Chairman or Vicki Morrey, Chief Executive at their earliest available opportunity.

 

Application format

Initial application is by way of CV and a Covering Letter summarising your interest in joining the Trustee Board at St Luke’s and what you think you will be able to contribute to the charity’s governance. Please submit this to alice_eeley@stlukes-hospice.co.uk
