Chief Executive

East Lancashire Hospice


Full-time, permanent

Park Lee Road, Blackburn, Lancashire, BB2 3NY

Since 1984 East Lancashire Hospice has supported and cared for patients with life limiting illnesses, their families and others close to them across our community of Blackburn, Darwen, Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley.

Our vision is to help everyone who comes into contact with the hospice to make the most of life. The hospice is a unique and special organisation where kindness and compassion are qualities that run throughout.

Over the past decade the hospice has grown signi­fic­antly to include a wide range of services classed as “­Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission.

Due to the retirement of our current CEO, the trustees now seek a new Chief Executive to lead the organisation into the next stage of our strategic development. We are ambitious in our goals and wish to continue our growth to enable us to reach and support more people than ever before.

We are looking for a leader who is committed to this vision, alongside our mission and values: to care, listen, respect and work together to support people to live well until they die and support those affected by death.
