Board Members

Want to make a difference and give back to your local community?
Keen to expand your skills and knowledge as well as your network?
Want to work with a committed and motivated team to improve local healthcare?

If ‘yes’ to the above, we have the opportunity for you. Come and join our ambitious, driven and determined Board of Trustees who support us in delivering outstanding care to our local community.
At Peace Hospice Care we provide free, specialist, palliative care to patients and their families facing life-limiting illness. We help them manage their conditions and provide support at end of life too. We have just embarked on a new 2020-2025 strategic plan and we are seeking motivated and committed individuals who will work with us in delivering on our ambitions, to:

  • Reach more people and their families in our community living with a life-limiting illness
  • Recognise, engage and actively respond to opportunities for working, sharing and learning from each other
  • Manage our charity efficiently and effectively

We are interested in hearing from candidates who live in, or are familiar with, our catchment area of South-West Hertfordshire, and the wider area, understand the communities we serve and can provide strategic board management skills/experience, with specialist knowledge, in one of the following areas:

  • Clinical, Health or Social Care
  • Integrated Governance
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Income Generation
  • Communications and Marketing
  • Retail

We are fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in both our workforce and within our culture. We aim for our workforce (staff and volunteers) to be truly representative of all sections of society, and for every employee and volunteer to feel respected and supported to perform at their best, and achieve their full potential. We welcome applications to join us as a Board Member from across our community.

This is a voluntary role and expenses will be paid for. The Board and Committees normally meet every quarter, there is an Annual General Meeting and all-day annual awayday usually held towards the end of the year. We will provide a full induction upon appointment with a chance to meet Trustees, staff and other stakeholders to find out more about how the Charity works.
