Chief Executive

The Hospice of St Francis - Chief Executive
                                                     
Location: Berkhamsted
 
Salary: Up to £85,000 + benefits
 
 
Our vision is that excellent palliative care be available to all those patients and families living with a life limiting illness in our catchment area, when they need it, and wherever they are. At present hospice palliative care reaches only 25% of people who die in our area each year. This, taken with the steadily growing numbers of frail elderly that are predicted, makes it clear that our vision presents a substantial challenge. Our aim, put simply, is to use our resources as imaginatively as possible in order to reach as many people as we can.  
 
The Hospice of St Francis was rated as Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission in May 2016. The CQC inspectors commented that patients and their families 'receive excellent care, based on best practice, from experienced staff who have the knowledge, skills and competencies to support their complex health needs' and 'the help and support they receive at the Hospice's Spring Centre changes lives and gives people strength'
 
We are now looking for an exceptional person to lead the charity forward with vision and commitment building on our outstanding rating.  
 
This is a critical and important time for the hospice sector but one which is full of potential for an organisation which is ambitious enough to take on the challenges and nimble enough to respond to - and create its own - new opportunities. The challenge is both exciting and significant.  
 
If you feel you have the skills, experience, drive and enthusiasm to join and lead this dynamic and successful charity we would like to hear from you as soon as possible.
