The End of Life Partnership is an organisation which aims to:
• lead, educate and facilitate excellence and best practice in palliative and end of life care
• influence and enable our communities to live and die well
The End of Life Partnership works towards making death, dying and loss a normal part of life, and increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of health, social and voluntary workforces and members of the general public.
The Partnership supports stakeholders in palliative and end of life care to deliver their outcome frameworks and local priorities, supported and informed by strong community, patient, public, clinical influence and engagement.
We wish to recruit up to a further three members to join our Chair and Trustees in creating a strong governing body: the board of trustees.
We need people who can help direct the End of Life Partnership towards achieving its mission and ensure it is effectively managed. You would need to be able to make a commitment to the Partnership and devote the necessary time; have strategic vision, independent judgement, an ability to think creatively and a willingness to speak your mind.
Ideally, the new trustees will also have skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:
• Experience of, or considerable interest in, palliative and end of life care
• Strategy, public policy, and management
• Third sector organisations, and partnerships across public and third sector
• Audit, evaluation and research
• Commissioning services
• Human resources
• Information Technology and/or Digital Media
We are particularly keen to add to our diverse board of trustees, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
We will pay trustees’ travel expenses and provide an induction into the End of Life Partnership’s work. You will be expected to contribute on average half to one day per month.
The closing date for applications is 25th November 2016. Interviews will be at the end of November/beginning of December 2016 (date TBC)
The End of Life Partnership is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital status, religion or belief.
