We’re looking for three new trustees to join our board of directors and help steer the organisation towards our 50th anniversary.
We will be celebrating 50 years of care in 2021, and we’re keen to welcome three new professionals to our board.
The first new board member will be a fully qualified accountant, and would assume the role of Honorary Treasurer, overseeing and monitoring the financial matters of the hospice in accordance with the governing and legal requirements. Knowledge and experience of capital campaign projects and an understanding of the fundraising landscape would be an advantage.
We’re also seeking a new board member with considerable strategic clinical experience, as well as experience of driving transformation in a clinical setting.
In addition, a third new board member would ideally have considerable strategic legal experience, including experience in build environment or construction. Again, knowledge of capital campaigns would also be advantageous, along with an interest in charity and corporate social responsibility.
Our trustees are all volunteers and each brings a unique set of skills and experience to the hospice. St Ann’s is a complex business, with fifteen shops, a lottery, and a range of fundraising and trading activities running alongside the core health and social care services we offer. The team at the hospice is providing world-class specialist support to local patients and their families, at a really difficult time in their lives, and I’m proud that we are always striving to be leaders in our field by sharing that knowledge and best practice and collaborating with others. It’s an exciting time for St Ann’s. We’re approaching our 50th birthday and have ambitious strategic plans to ensure we’re able to reach even more local people from our communities than ever before. It’s our duty to make sure that future generations in Greater Manchester have access to high quality palliative and end of life care, and we’d love our new trustees to help us to ensure that’s the case. We’re aiming to broaden the experience of the board as we continue to innovate, to develop links externally, and strengthen our finances. I’d love to hear from anyone with senior strategic leadership or board experience who feels they can help us to evolve and continue providing our much-needed care well into the future. Jackie Oldham, Chair of St Ann’s
