St Michael’s Hospice is seeking to welcome new Trustees to the Hospice

"To perform well and continue to provide excellent services we need a range of people supporting the Hospice. Meeting families of patients and realising what an excellent service the Hospice provides is very heart-warming. I wanted to give something back to the local community after a very rewarding career, I hope you will too.” Peter Dewhurst, Trustee

St Michael’s Hospice is one of the most loved charities in the area; we have an amazing team of dedicated staff and volunteers who support people and their families in Hastings and Rother. The Trustees play a crucial role in the Hospice. They are responsible for the strategic leadership of the charity and act as guardians to ensure its success, now, and importantly for generations to come. As Trustees we focus on, and take responsibility for the governance of the charity and take ultimate responsibility for the running of the organisation in line with Charity Commission guidelines.

Particular areas where we want to strengthen the Board include:

  • Senior/strategic clinical knowledge and experience (preferably in palliative care or a related field)
  • Accountancy/financial or investment management
  • Corporate governance within charity or business
  • Income generation and fundraising.

Applications are invited from across Hastings and Rother. We are also committed to increasing the diversity of our Trustees and welcome applications from under-represented groups who could help inform and develop all areas of our work.

If you have any initial questions please contact Karen Clarke, Chief Executive, on 01424 456367. Should you decide to take forward your interest in joining the Board, please submit your CV by 4th January 2019, either by email or to the Hospice (25 Upper Maze Hill, St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex, TN38 0LB)marked as confidential.

We also have vacancies on our Retail and Lottery Boards for those with retail or financial knowledge and experience. If you are interested in these roles please email us.
