Can you lead a communications strategy to give Hospice care to those who need it?

Hospice UK, the national charity for hospice and palliative care is working to ensure all adults and children living with a terminal or life shortening illness receive the care and support they need, when they need it.

We believe that everyone, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, should receive the best possible care at the end of their life. No one should die in avoidable pain or suffering.

We champion hospice and palliative care; giving it a collective voice, speaking out and making the case to influence key decision makers to widen access to care for those who need it and we seek to empower individuals, communities and populations to embrace the ethos of hospice care and extend its breadth and reach to improve everyone’s experience of death, dying and bereavement.

To deliver our ambitious five year strategy we need to build stronger local and national relationships and strengthen dialogue about death, dying and bereavement across society.

To continue our work, bringing hospice and palliative care to the forefront we are seeking an exceptional Director of Campaigns and Communications with significant experience of leading and delivering a communication and campaign strategy for a large, national organisation.

They will lead the development of our communications strategy amplifying our messages across a variety of platforms to improve our reach and deliver innovative campaigns that will bring our work to the attention of the broader public so those in need get the care they deserve.
