East Cheshire Hospice is looking for two new Trustee Board members.
One of the roles is to chair its Patient Care and Clinical Governance Committee, so a volunteer with a good understanding of healthcare and its challenges is required.
The other position is for a candidate with a more general background. Skills and experience in other sectors, or roles, would be useful.
There is no requirement to have held a trustee position before and induction support is provided.
The Trustee Board, chaired by Will Spinks, is responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the Hospice, working with the chief executive and senior management team.
The minimum commitment includes quarterly board and committee meetings, email and phone discussions and attendance at occasional Hospice events. There may be a requirement to represent the Hospice at external events and meetings.
Trustee Jon Beck said: “A trustee role provides opportunities for personal and professional development, including strategic planning and organisational development.
“Becoming a trustee can be immensely rewarding and fulfilling and means you’ll be making decisions that will impact people’s lives and make a difference to your local community.”
