Job Description

We are looking for a new Trustee with senior financial expertise. We need these skills to help ensure that our Charity is well run and able to raise and steward the funds needed to deliver essential local hospice care in Buckinghamshire.

About Florence Nightingale Hospice

Florence Nightingale Hospice is based on the campus of Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. The Hospice is run by Bucks NHS Healthcare Trust, and partly funded by Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity.

Florence Nightingale Hospice provides a range of palliative and end-of-life care services to people in Buckinghamshire and parts of Oxfordshire and south Bedfordshire who have life-limiting illnesses such as chronic lung conditions, cancer and neurological conditions. It has an In-Patient Unit with twelve beds in the Hospice, and it supports patients in the home through the Nightingale 24/7 Care and Community Nursing Teams.

In addition, the Day Hospice offers physical, therapeutic and emotional support to people who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, but who are able to live independently at home. The Hospice also runs the Lymphoedema Clinic and cares for and supports families and friends of patients, through the Bereavement Support Team and Florrie’s Children’s Team.

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity commits to raise £750,000 each year to fund Florence Nightingale Hospice services, and the Charity recruits and manages a team of over 300 volunteers who support both the Hospice and the Charity, in our Charity shops and at fundraising events.

The role

Our Board of Trustees is a group of volunteers who govern the Charity, supporting and constructively challenging the CEO and paid staff team, to ensure that we serve our charitable purpose and meet our strategic aims, whilst staying financially healthy and in line with the law.

We need these skills to help ensure that our Charity is well run and able to raise and steward the funds needed to deliver essential hospice care in Buckinghamshire and bordering areas.

  • Accountancy qualification
