St Luke’s cares for people in mid & south Cheshire who are experiencing life threatening illnesses. We offer specialist treatment, care, advice and support to patients and their families each year.

If you have experience in the private, public or voluntary sectors and an enthusiasm to make a difference, we can offer you the opportunity to join our Trustee Board and make a positive contribution to the work we do.  We have a vacancy for a position for someone who is a Doctor and our other vacancy is for someone with an Estates/Facilities management background.

You will need to demonstrate a range of competencies including strategic thinking, team working, excellent communications skills, a challenging approach and a strong judgement. We are looking for Trustees who have the dedication, commitment and desire to improve our services and help us to achieve our goals in line with the ethos and values.

Trustees are expected to attend monthly Board Meetings which are held in the early evenings on the last Wednesday of the month at the Hospice. You will also be expected to be a member of a Board Committee which also meets 6 times per year. Trustee positions are voluntary and reasonable expenses can be paid. This role offers great scope for professional development, exposure at Board level and the opportunity to support the development of local services.

Appointments will be offered subject to standard checks including satisfactory references and DBS check.
