This is an exciting opportunity to join the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, one of Cheshire’s  most respected charities. Established in 1989, our wonderful hospice does sterling work in the area, providing much needed palliative and end of life care and support to the families affected through our Family Services team.

Our Hospice is founded on inspiration, good organisation, determination and hard work. We are seeking a Chief Executive who will embrace our vision and values and continue to lead our dedicate team to build on our foundations and help us to extend our reach and to support more people within our catchment area.

Our current CEO is due to retire at the end of the year having overseen many important changes to the Hospice during her four years.   Working with a committed Board of Trustees and a strong Management team, we are seeking a Chief Executive to lead us into the next exciting, yet challenging, chapter of our development. This is a critical appointment for the Hospice and an exciting opportunity for a new Chief Executive to help shape the future of the Hospice of the Good Shepherd.

To be successful in the role, you will need to be able to demonstrate the senior management experience that this complex role demands as well as bring the dedicated, inspiring and empowering leadership qualities that are essential. 

With a strong ethos of team working based on values of compassion, respect and integrity, the leadership of the Chief Executive is pivotal to the motivation and coordination of a large and hugely diverse team of both paid and voluntary staff.
