About us:

At Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice we care for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions. We are currently supporting around 250 families both in our hospice and in family homes.

Our support services are wide ranging and bespoke to each family including end of life treatment and care, respite short breaks, counselling, sibling support groups, music therapy, home visits and much, much more.  It costs more than £4m to keep our doors open for families across South Yorkshire and beyond. We receive around 10% of our funding from government sources.

The role:

As our Governance Officer, you will be responsible for the promotion and delivery of the governance agenda within Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. We are looking for a highly motivated and experienced individual with a good understanding of the governance agenda, who can lead on co-ordinating and managing governance work-streams throughout the hospice, using critical analysis and report writing skills to promote good governance to a variety of audiences. 

The requirements:

If you have excellent communication and negotiation skills in order to present both written and verbal reports, are able to identify governance problems and concerns, and suggest solutions or changes to support continuous quality improvements, have a good standard of computer literacy, and would like to work somewhere where you can really make a difference every day; then we’d love to hear from you.

The role is predominantly Monday - Friday office hours, but there will be a very occasional requirement out of core office hours to support critical meetings.
