St Ann’s Hospice is looking for a qualified accountant to join its board of directors in a voluntary capacity.
St Ann’s, which cares for thousands of people with cancer and other-life-limiting illnesses every year from its three sites in Little Hulton, Heald Green in Stockport and the Neil Cliffe Centre in Wythenshawe Hospital – is one of the oldest adult hospices in the country, and is looking to expand its board of directors.
Christine Gibbons, Chair of St Ann’s, said: “Our board is made up of volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds, all extremely experienced in their fields, and all able to bring different skills and knowledge to the table.
“It’s an extremely exciting time of change and growth at the hospice, and we’re hoping this latest addition to the team will offer strategic guidance and help us to continue to ensure the hospice has the best possible levels of governance.”
St Ann’s is a registered charity which receives around a third of its funding from the NHS, with the rest – equating to around £16,000 every day – fundraised thanks to the kind generosity of local people.
Christine added: “St Ann’s is such an important part of the communities it serves, and it seems that most people know someone who has benefitted from its services.
“I’m proud to be part of such an amazing team, and look forward to welcoming this new member to join us too.”
Any accountants interested in joining the St Ann’s board should hold a CCAB qualification and have experience working at a senior level. They should also have specific experience of strategic financial management and budget setting in a large organisation.
