Trustee Vacancy

North Devon Hospice are looking for a new trustee to join our committed and dynamic Board. We are particularly keen to recruit members of the local community who have experience in Retail Management, Fundraising or e-Commerce and a willingness to guide us into the future. Ideal candidates will be passionate about the care we offer.  We are a local charity providing specialist care and support to people who are affected by a life-limiting illness and our patients and their families are at the heart of everything we do.

Previous trustee experience is not a requirement since mentoring and support will be provided.  Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

Like any organisation, it’s the people who make a difference, so why not join us and make a difference to our patients and their families.
