Would you consider bringing your skills, knowledge and experience to the Board of a dynamic and innovative organisation, passionate about supporting people living with a serious or terminal illness in the London Borough of Hillingdon and surrounding areas.
We have reached an exciting stage in our development. Harlington Hospice (HHA) and the Michael Sobell Hospice Charity have recently merged, and our combined clinical and fundraising strengths will ensure that everyone who comes to us can be supported to shape their own care. At Harlington Hospice Association we believe that, even when confronted by the reality of death, everyone can still live each day to the fullest. We are here, alongside our community, in their time of need.
Our current focus is on shaping our ambitious strategic plans to deliver even greater services to patients and families and to improve equality, diversity and inclusion across our governance and leadership structure, our workforce and our wide range of services.
We are looking for four new Trustees to help develop and oversee our current strategic plan for 1 or 2 days a month. We welcome applications from people with a wide range of skills though we are particularly seeking people with these broad skill sets below.
- Commercial acumen: experience and understanding of business growth, with the ability to think with agility and creativity
- Fundraising: in particular experience of diversifying and considering alternative income streams
- Clinical understanding: experience and understanding of working in the health or care sector and in clinical settings.
We are open to recruiting both experienced Board members and people without previous Board experience. A full induction and onboarding programme will be provided.
We are looking for people who have compassion, empathy and sensitivity to the circumstances and experiences of the people we support with end-of-life care and their families. If you believe you possess the skills and qualities to become a trustee and wish to find out more about us and the work undertaken by our charity, we would be delighted to hear from you.
If you would like a call to discuss the role in more detail, please email Paul Venning, firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a convenient time. Having a call of this kind will not influence the success or otherwise of your application.
We want you to have every opportunity to demonstrate your skills, ability and potential; please contact us if you require any assistance or adjustment so that we can help with making the application process work for you.
HHA is fully committed to equality of opportunity and diversity to ensure that we reflect the full breadth of the people we aim to support. We work within an increasingly diverse area, and it is important that the Board is representative of the communities that we serve.
