Based in Leeds, St Gemma’s is an innovative and pioneering hospice, with services rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission. We have a robust programme of continuous improvement and play a key role in influencing the future of palliative and end of life care city wide, with our hosting of the Leeds Palliative Care Network. We are also a leader in research, education and evidence into practice; St Gemma’s is the first University Teaching Hospice and a partner of the University of Leeds.
We are now looking for two experienced strategic leaders to join our Board of Trustees and Finance and Business Committee. You need not be a qualified accountant but will bring proven commercial skills which will help us grow and diversify our income and protect our services. You will bring a commitment to best practice, be able to offer well-informed views and constructive challenge, and importantly, share our Hospice values of Caring, Aspiring and Professional. We are open to people’s professional backgrounds and are keen to attract candidates who may not traditionally have considered a role on our Board.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a strong, effective Board of Trustees which takes responsibility for overseeing the Hospice’s strategy and performance, working closely with the Chief Operating Officer and Hospice Leadership Team. Our Trustees are critical in enabling us to achieve our ambitions and financial stability and sustainability are key to all our plans. At a time when the country is facing financial challenge and when our income streams are potentially fragile, your commercial acumen, strategic ability and entrepreneurial outlook will help enable us to remain agile and financially robust.
