Heart of Kent Hospice Board wishes to recruit new Trustees to widen its skill base and take the Hospice forward. We recognise the benefits and opportunities of having a diverse community of Board members and are actively encouraging applicants from a wide range of backgrounds.
The Hospice would welcome interest from candidates with sound business, management and strategic skills who would like the opportunity to contribute their skills to a local independent charity. At this time, we are also seeking a candidate with experience of property development and a qualified finance professional.
The Board of Trustees, who are also directors of the Hospice, determines the overall direction and development of the Hospice through good governance and clear strategic planning, alongside commitment to our organisation values.
The Governance structure of the Hospice consists of the main Board and three Board Committees – Governance, Risk and Remuneration; Clinical Governance; and Finance & Income Generation. Trustees usually sit on one Committee in addition to the main Board.
Heart of Kent Hospice, established in 1991, provides exceptional care for people with terminal illnesses in Maidstone, Aylesford, Tonbridge, Malling and surrounding areas. The Hospice has built an excellent reputation within the local community for the quality of our care which has been further endorsed by the Care Quality Commission who have given the Hospice an overall rating of Outstanding.
