Springhill Hospice is a purpose-built facility offering specialist palliative care from diagnosis to end-of-life through its Inpatient Unit, Day Hospice, Community and Outpatient Services.

Our values reflect the way we deliver excellence in care and in 2019 we proudly celebrated our 30th anniversary, in a year which also saw our wonderful team of volunteers honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and the Hospice Education Team win a national award for their innovative training programme. More recently the Hospice has been presented with The High Sheriff’s Special Recognition Award for outstanding contribution to the community during the difficult circumstances brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our Chief Executive is to retire later this year after an extremely successful time at the Hospice and we are now searching for her successor. To succeed in this role, you will need to demonstrate the highest level of skills required for this exciting position and be a compassionate leader with experience of leading a multi-disciplinary team across all services.

As a registered Charity the Hospice needs to raise over £4 million each year to maintain this wide range of high quality services which are inclusive for all faiths and their families. Our next Chief Executive will need to have the ambition and drive to build on these achievements and to lead our future strategic direction.

As Chief Executive you will work with a complex range of stakeholders across the region so you will need to have demonstrable leadership qualities along with excellent communication skills. You will also need to have a shared commitment to our values and vision and preferably with experience in a similar environment.

For an informal discussion, please speak to Julie Halliwell, Chief Executive, on 01706 649920. For a recruitment pack and application form please email providing your full name and home address to: hmrccg.recruitmentspringhill@nhs.net
