Job description

Audit Trustee

St Margaret’s is looking for new trustees to join the board who will bring their skills, talent, and enthusiasm to the heart of our organisation. We are seeking trustees who will lead support and guide us as we respond to the changing needs of our community.

This is a voluntary role.

About you

If you have experience in the private, public, or voluntary sectors, can share in our vision and our enthusiasm to make a difference, we would love to talk to you about the trustee role and the work of St Margaret’s Hospice.

Personal Qualities

  • Demonstrate a strong and visible passion and commitment to the charity, its strategic objectives, and overall aims.
  • Exhibit strong interpersonal and relationship building abilities and be comfortable in an ambassadorial role.
  • Ability to foster and promote a collaborative working environment.

What we offer

  • The opportunity to make a real difference and shape the future of St Margaret’s Hospice.
  • A comprehensive training and development package.
  • Broadening skills, knowledge and expertise working alongside a diverse range of professions.
  • Enhance your CV.
  • Expenses paid.

The commitment of a trustee is approximately two meetings per quarter, plus two full days a year. Most of our meetings are currently held remotely, in the future we are hoping to meet in person for occasional meetings.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for supervising the management and administration of the charity and provides strategic leadership, counsel, and advice to the Executive Team.  Trustees will need to have the ability to balance being a critical friend, challenging and scrutinising performance, while coaching and developing the Executive Team to be the best they can be.

We are looking for someone to bring their broad based, strategic level expertise in internal/external audit and commercial/corporate compliance or clinical governance, and compliance to help:

  • Ensure an accountability framework is in place to examine and review systems and control methods both financial and otherwise including risk analysis and management to ensure ongoing quality improvement.
  • Monitor and review the Hospice’s internal audit process.
  • Monitor and ensure that each directorate area is compliant with legislation, good practice, and relevant professional and regulatory bodies and that all policies and procedures are in place and reviewed on at least a three yearly basis.
  • Review systems in place to support external inspections and audits.


Board members are invited to serve a four-year term and are eligible for re-appointment for one additional term.

We are keen for our Board to reflect the communities we serve, and very much welcome applications from those with relevant lived experience, and candidates from all underrepresented communities and groups.

Apply now

If you are interested in playing this important role on our Board of Trustees, please send your CV and a covering letter to Julie Higham, Head of Human Resources.
