SummaryAre you a dynamic individual with Retail experience at a senior level able to provide strategic advice and insight to our Trading Board?
Isabel Hospice is seeking a dynamic individual with Retail experience at a senior level to join the Board of Isabel Hospice Trading Ltd.
We are looking to appoint an Independent Director to provide specialist high level advice and insight to identify and deliver vision and strategy and oversee the delivery of plans that enable the maximisation of profits for the Trading company of the Charity.
We currently have 15 shops across Eastern Hertfordshire with plans to open additional shops, as well as a successful eBay operation with 25,000 followers, and online platforms across Vinted and Depop. All income from our Trading company, post operational costs, contribute towards the Hospice which supports people with life limiting conditions and their families across Welwyn Hatfield, eastern Hertfordshire and Broxbourne. During 2022/23, 1797 people were supported.
Alongside this, our shops support the circular economy by promoting slow fashion and sustainable shopping. This is showcased by our Tonnes of Care Campaign to save 25,000 tonnes from landfill by 2027 and turning the public’s unwanted items into nursing hours by selling them in our shops or through e-commerce.
Please contact us to arrange an informal discussion with Melanie Cottrell, Chair of Trading Board

About Isabel Hospice
All our care is free and can be provided in your home, at our community hubs or our In-Patient Unit. Most of the people we care for have cancer, however, we are also increasingly caring for people with other life limiting conditions.
