Job Function: Chair
Industry: Charities, Health
Hospice UK, the national charity working for those experiencing dying, death and bereavement is seeking a new chair. We believe that everyone, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, should receive the best possible care at the end of their life.
We work for the benefit of people affected by death and dying, collaborating with our hospice members and other partners who work in end of life care. Our hospice members influence and guide our work to put people at the centre of all we do.
Our chair will identify with our vision and be able to commit their time and expertise to achieving it. A skilled networker and negotiator, they will use their skills to win trust and build the strategic relationships with key decision makers and partners that are needed to deliver the organisation’s strategy and goals.
This is a unique opportunity to lead hospice and palliative care through a time of unprecedented change. To speak out to address the inequalities that exist in our society for those at the end of their life and to stop many more people dying without getting the help and support they need at the time they need it the most.
If you wish to play a key role in addressing the inequalities at the end of life that exist in our society, please forward your CV and covering letter outlining why you would like to be the chair of Hospice UK to email@example.com
We value equality and diversity, and strive to be inclusive. We recognise the benefit of having people from a range of backgrounds, heritages, ages, experiences and skills in our organisation.
We particularly welcome applicants from people with disabilities, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and LGBT+ as these are currently under represented on our board.
The deadline for applications is noon Monday 2 November 2020. Interview dates are to be confirmed.
