Willen Hospice is looking for a new trustee to join the board who will bring their skills, enthusiasm, and in particular knowledge of property matters, to the heart of our organisation.
We are a Milton Keynes based charity, highly regarded, and well established in the local community. A new extension to the Hospice has recently opened and we employ 200 staff, manage 14 shops and over 1000 volunteers. The Board currently consists of 11 members who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience of working in the commercial and charity sectors.
Our vision at Willen Hospice, is to be the lasting and thriving provider of free care to all people affected by life limiting illness in our community of Milton Keynes and surrounding areas. The Willen Hospice Values are important to us and are at the heart of everything we do: Compassion, Ambition, Respect and Excellence.
This is a voluntary role.
If you have a solid background of working at a strategic level in a commercial property environment and feel able to commit to the Willen Hospice vision and values, we would love to talk to you about the trustee role and the work that we do.
What we offer
Trustees serve up to a 10-year term and are eligible for re-appointment for 3 additional years.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for overseeing the leadership, management and administration of the charity working closely with the senior team. On occasion, trustees will need to have the ability to balance their role as a team player with that of critical friend to challenge and scrutinise performance.
If you are interested in playing this important role on our Board of Trustees, please send your application to Margaret Dovies, Margaret.Dovies@willen-hospice.org.uk PA to the CEO with your CV/ summary of your experience.
All applicants are subject to an advanced disclosure check before commencing their Trustee role.
Interviews will be held with the CEO, Chair and a third member of the board. Candidates will have opportunity to visit the Hospice prior to interview.
Deadline: 28th July 2023
We are particularly looking to improve our diversity as a Board and so welcome applicants from a range of different backgrounds but particularly those from an ethnic minority group as Willen is currently underrepresented in this area.
