Who we are.

HospiceCare is a local palliative care organisation that supports people with life-limiting illnesses to live and die well. We do this by offering Hospice @ Home, Wellbeing support, Outpatient and Bereavement services to the residents of North Northumberland. We are an independent charity working to support the needs of our community.

HospiceCare is a hospice without walls, bringing comfort and support to our patients, their loved ones, families, friends and carers where they are. We have an ambitious strategy to expand our care and support and we need a passionate and dynamic leader to be able to deliver our mission.

Who we need you to lead.

We are looking to recruit a dynamic and thoughtful Chief Executive to lead HospiceCare through our ambitious 2021-2024 strategy and beyond. The Chief Executive will lead and guide the Senior Management Team to effectively deliver and develop services in a sustainable way. You will also inspire and empower the organisation and external stakeholders to embrace the hospice movement as a social movement.

How we need you to lead.

Our new Chief Executive will be engaging, supporting and have a collegiate style, in keeping with HospiceCare’s values, mission and purpose.  As our organisation continues to grow, our Chief Executive will need to continually develop, engage and respond to the needs of the organisation. You will do this by working with our dedicated Senior Management Team, and our supportive Board of Trustees, maintaining an effective and sustainable balance between operations, strategy and governance.

How you can become our next Chief Executive.

To be considered for the position of Chief Executive we will need you to:

  1. Complete an application form which can be found at Home | HospiceCare North Northumberland (hospicecare-nn.org.uk)
  2. Provide a covering letter to answer the following question in between 500-1000 words:

What do you think the essential skills of leadership are, why do you consider them essential and how do you demonstrate these skills?

Other considerations.

We recognise at HospiceCare that our next Chief Executive may not be local and we are seeking the right person to lead our organisation. We would be willing to look at relocation costs for the right person to join our organisation.

For an informal conversation or further information on this role please contact our current Chief Executive Emily Dobson on edobson@hospicecare-nn.org.uk or 01665 606515.
