Hospice of the Valleys is the specialist palliative care provider of choice across Blaenau Gwent.  A registered charity governed by a board of trustees, the Hospice delivers high quality care for patients suffering life limiting illness, and comprehensive support for their families throughout treatment, end of life care and bereavement. Due to the retirement of our current Chief Executive, we are now seeking to appoint a new Chief Executive to build on our successes and drive forward our strategic plans for the Hospice.

The Board of Trustees wish to appoint a strong and ambitious leader who can provide inspirational direction to our team during this period of change. The successful candidate will demonstrate their understanding of the political, social and economic changes affecting the delivery of health and social care services in the hospice environment, in addition to having a strong understanding of the related compliance and legal issues.

The new Chief Executive will be an effective people manager and motivator, able to build effective teams and develop clinical services to ensure the high quality of care we deliver is at the forefront of our incoming strategy.  In return, the Chief Executive will enjoy the support of a committed Board of Trustees and a growing, dynamic team.
