EACH is the largest provider of children’s hospice services in the East of England.

EACH is seeking a strong and motivational leader who will own the strategy, set the direction and provide the guidance and support to deliver the organisational goals and priorities.

• Board level experience gained within a complex, changing and growing organisation with responsibility for a large team.
• A strong, credible communicator, able to foster effective relationships with many diverse and important stakeholders.
• Sector experience is less important, but we are looking for a genuine interest and commitment to the charity’s purpose
