A HEREFORDSHIRE hospice is on the hunt for new volunteers for a vital position.

St Michael's Hospice, with its long established history of high quality end of life care and education, has recently completed its new and refurbished buildings.

A hospice spokesperson said a couple of rare and exciting opportunities have arisen for individuals to join the Board of Trustees, which is working to secure the future and expand services.

The hospice is specifically looking for trustees with present or recent experience in clinical care in a health care setting, HR, education and financial or accounting experience.

"If you are prepared to share your skills, knowledge, experience and time to help St Michael's develop and deliver our strategy and contribute to achieving our mission, we would like to talk to you," a spokesperson said.

"There are eight board meetings a year and you will also contribute to the individual committees depending on your skills."

If you are interested in applying for a trustee position, please contact Alister Walshe (Chairman of the Board) and send your curriculum vitae and a covering letter giving details of your suitability for the post as soon as possible via email to awalshe@smhospicehereford.org or by post to St Michaels Hospice, Bartestree, Hereford, HR1 4HA.
