We are looking for new Trustees to join our Income Generation Committee, which is fundamental to the Hospice being able to deliver its services. We have three areas of expertise for the committee:

  1. Business Background: We are looking for someone who has experience of operating at a board/senior level with a commercial business background
  2. Community links: As the Hospice is placed firmly within the community, we would like someone on the committee who has good relationships within our local community groups
  3. Chairing committees: The committee will require a new chair during 2018 and we are therefore  looking for someone who has experience of chairing board committees. 

All Trustees will need a strong sense of accountability, be a strategic thinker as well as having excellent communication and interpersonal skills. An empathy with Hospice philosophy is essential. Trustees are required to attend six Board Meetings a year, an annual strategic planning day, the AGM and monthly meetings of the committee to which they are aligned.
