The Shakespeare Hospice is an award winning Hospice offering services and facilities to day care patients, Hospice@Home, carers, and transitional young people with life limiting illnesses.  We offer counselling, complementary therapy, diversional therapy, occupational health and physiotherapy to our patients, carers and their families across Shakespeare country and the North Cotswolds.


.To provide this care and innovate further we need raise £2 million a year and our seven shops across the county help towards achieving this. 

We are looking for people who enjoy the social aspect of working in a retail environment.  You will have excellent communication skills, be able to problem solve and enjoy making sales to help us reach our targets.

As a Bank Retail Manager or Furniture Shop Assistant the hours are varied, and if you are flexible about locations, you can enjoy working with our teams across our seven shops including two furniture shops, a boutique, bookshop/coffee shop and ‘traditional’ charity shops who sell a huge range of donated goods. If you have a preference to a particular shop we would also be interested in hearing from you.

Competitive rates of pay.

We are looking for new Trustees to join our Income Generation Committee, which is fundamental to the Hospice being able to deliver its services. We have three areas of expertise for the committee:

  1. Business Background: We are looking for someone who has experience of operating at a board/senior level with a commercial business background
  2. Community links: As the Hospice is placed firmly within the community, we would like someone on the committee who has good relationships within our local community groups
  3. Chairing committees: The committee will require a new chair during 2018 and we are therefore  looking for someone who has experience of chairing board committees. 

All Trustees will need a strong sense of accountability, be a strategic thinker as well as having excellent communication and interpersonal skills. An empathy with Hospice philosophy is essential. Trustees are required to attend six Board Meetings a year, an annual strategic planning day, the AGM and monthly meetings of the committee to which they are aligned.
