Volunteer Head of Care Delivery
Saron, Carmarthenshire (home/office based)
 
Skanda Vale Hospice is seeking a Volunteer Head of Care Delivery. This is a rare opportunity to influence and change the lives of many people for the better. Clinical experience is not necessary.

Founded by Skanda Vale multi-faith monastery, Skanda Vale Hospice is the first and only inpatient hospice in the UK to be run entirely by professional volunteers. The hospice offers truly bespoke, whole-person care to meet the personal, emotional, practical, physical and spiritual needs of adults with lifelimiting illnesses.
Good palliative care is all about the expression of love and care through the tiny details of everyday life.

Your task is to help keep our care teams working in harmony with this simple truth. Even if you haven’t worked in care before, you will be confident and exercise good judgement to know (or find out) how to use the resources at your disposal to meet the whole-person care needs of vulnerable adults.

You will be a compassionate individual with a history of leadership excellence who is looking for an opportunity to put a lifetime of skills to good use. You will have warmth, empathy, confidence and be a great communicator.

You may have managed services for vulnerable people before and will have experience in:

- Operating at senior level in a highly regulated public-facing organisation
- Establishing systems and processes to ensure organisational excellence
- Motivating, empowering and developing people
- Partnership-building and maintaining effective relationships
- Change-management and continuous improvement
- Managing risk
 
The time commitment for the Volunteer Head of Care Delivery will be one day a week at the beautiful hospice building in addition to 30-60 mins per day remotely (with availability via phone, email and pre-arranged online meetings). The hospice site at Saron is an easy commute from Carmarthen and close to the Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire borders. Like most roles at Skanda Vale Hospice, we invest an unusual amount of trust and responsibility in our volunteers. However, this role is structured in such a way to offer an absorbing challenge, without stress. You will be well supported. This will be a genuinely life-changing opportunity for the right person.
