Job Details

Prospect Hospice is looking for talented, passionate Finance professionals to join our Board of Trustees. If you have the time and enthusiasm to be a part of our outstanding organisation and really add value to the community, we want to hear from you!

The Background

Over four decades, Prospect Hospice has become the organisation that people in Swindon,
Marlborough and north Wiltshire turn to when they, or the people they love, are diagnosed with a
life-limiting illness. We have cared for and supported thousands of local people, which is why so many
people contribute in their own way to a charity that makes a positive difference in our community.

Our vision is ‘A community where death is no longer a taboo, and everyone has the right to live and
die well’. At Prospect Hospice, our patients and their loved one, our staff and our volunteers are at
the centre of all that we do. Working with local health and social care partners, and stakeholders from
across the community, we have a vital role in improving end-of-life care for everyone.

We are looking for new Trustees who can support our mission to work with and through
others using our skills and expertise, so that people have a choice and support at the end of their life.

Our Board usually meets four times each year, in addition to which Trustees are asked to also join
one of our quarterly sub committees. While it would be beneficial for Trustees to be willing/able to
contribute to Prospect related activity outside meetings, for example to participate in specific project focused tasks or attending and representing the Charity at external events, this is not essential.

Who are we looking for?

Our Board of Trustee team has responsibility for overseeing our strategy and performance and we
are looking for people who will bring the enthusiasm, experience and commitment we need to help
guide the Hospice through the next phase of its development. You will have the ability to be an
effective role model and influencer and be committed to the aims, objectives and values of Prospect
Hospice, maintaining a genuine interest in our work. You will be a strategic and creative thinker and
be able to work effectively as part of a team.

We are particularly interested to hear from candidates with relevant experience and professionally
qualified in Finance/Accountancy as well as individuals with experience in
Fundraising/Income Generation with emphasis on successfully using digital marketing.

There are more details of the role at and for an informal discussion with a current trustee and more information contact Siobhain Acott, on 01793 816119 or email

We are committed to ensuring that all employees and job applicants are provided with equality of opportunity in employment. Applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, offending background, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.

and transparent way and encourage staff, volunteers, patients and families to raise any safeguarding


Prospect Hospice provides a broad range of End of Life Care services across Swindon and North East Wiltshire. Our care is delivered in our In-Patient Unit and patients’ homes. The Hospice has an outstanding local reputation and is committed to ensuring that the patients and families we provide comfort and care for each year continue to receive an exceptional level of support towards the end of their lives as well as helping to influence and enhance best practice in End of Life Care with other providers.

When you work for Prospect Hospice, you’re an ambassador for a charity that is hugely cherished by the local community, and we recruit with this in mind.
