Chair of the Board of Trustees

Categories: Leadership.

Do you share our passion for and commitment to St Catherine’s mission? Are you someone with excellent leadership skills who can inspire confidence and commitment from others and lead by example? Can you give us some of your valuable time to ensure we continue to provide excellent services, raise our profile and raise vital funds to support our work?

St Catherine’s Hospice is looking for outstanding Chair of Trustees to join its Board. Working in partnership with the Chief Executive, the Chair will be joining us at a time of change and opportunity, including the prospect of a potential new building within the catchment area.   

We want to hear from anyone within our operational area of East Surrey and Mid & West Sussex who can bring relevant expertise and experience to our team. In particular we are looking for someone who has knowledge of key issues in health and social care, with experience of committee work and chairing meetings, and who can be an ambassador and the ‘public face’ of St Catherine’s.

We are holding two Open Events in March. These are opportunities to talk to Senior Managers and current Trustees to find out what is involved and to hear about their experience.  Information packs, including an application form, will be available at each event, and if you are interested, then please do come along. The dates and times are:

  • Thursday 3 March at 5.00pm – 6.30pm
  • Saturday 5 March 10.00am – 11.30am

If you plan to attend, please register your interest with Anne Blackburn. Registering doesn’t commit you to anything other than coming along. Anne is the Executive Aide to Trustees and will be happy to answer any questions you may have in advance. You can contact her on 01293 447350 or at (Monday to Thursday).

If, before you come along, you would like to find out a little more about St Catherine’s Hospice, please visit the hospice website.
