What are we looking for?

Our Board of Trustees bring insight, business acumen, forward-thinking approaches, diversity and unique skills to St Peter & St James Hospice, to ensure its sustainability, governance and integration where it is needed the most.

Our Trustees share our values and vision and help shape, grow and develop the organisation, its people, services and outreach. They are self-motivated, approachable, friendly and excellent communicators and very much respected by the employees and volunteers at St Peter & St James Hospice. They put the needs of community members who use our services at the forefront of their decision-making and are passionate and enthusiastic ambassadors for the Trust.

Who should apply?

We would love to receive applications from people who live in the local community, who are keen to share their experience and skills, particularly those with direct experience of hospice care or experience of other relevant services.

“We would welcome applications from people who live in the local community, who are keen to share their experience and skills.  We would particularly like to hear from people with experience of the commercial / retail sectors, online brand development, communications and marketing, and palliative care.”

“We believe that our staff and volunteers should represent the community we serve and that increased diversity enriches Board discussion and decision-making. Some groups are underrepresented on our team and this is an exciting opportunity for us to find trustees with a broader range of backgrounds and experience. You may never have been a trustee before, but if you’ve got the skills we need we’ll welcome you onto the board and support you as you settle into your role.”

~ Harriet Creamer, Chair of Trustees
