Organisation: Havens Hospices
Vacancy Type: Trustee
Deadline: 28th January 2019
Region: East of England
Havens Hospices includes Fair Havens Hospice, Little Havens Hospice and The J's Hospice.
Havens Hospices faces an exciting and challenging time, as it takes forward its plans to build a new Fair Havens. We are looking to appoint two Trustees to support the Hospice's mission, ensure it is effectively led and make a positive contribution to the work of the board.
Previous Trustee experience is not essential, applicants would however need current or very recent experience in a senior role in any of the following areas:
- Fundraising and Marketing
- People Management (this covers HR, Volunteer Management or Training)
Trustee responsibilities are wide and varied and include: giving leadership to the organisation; setting its strategic direction; and ensuring its activities come within the scope of its governing documents, are compliant with relevant legislation and are adequately resourced.
Trustees are required to
- Attend up to six Trustee meetings per year
- Sit on the Sub Committee and attend up to four meetings a year
- Attend the AGM, strategy days and represent the Hospice at external events
- Attend and participate in training as and when required
Trustees are given full support, comprehensive induction, training opportunities and assigned a mentor. Out of pocket travel expenses are provided.
Volunteering as a Trustee is an excellent way to develop both personal and professional skills. This is unique opportunity to be involved at the highest level of this important local charity.
