Royal Trinity Hospice (”Trinity”) is the oldest hospice in the UK, with a rich heritage and a tradition of innovation and leadership dating back to 1891. Today, Trinity is the sole specialist palliative care provider for around 900,000 people living in seven Central & South London boroughs. We provide outstanding, free end-of-life care to adults with progressive, life-limiting illnesses, helping them to live every moment to the full and supporting their families and loved ones.

Trinity is renowned for its patient-centred approach and we offer an extensive range of services to around 2,500 patients each year including specialist medical and nursing provision, therapeutic, psychosocial, practical and spiritual support. Our care, rated “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission, is provided in our state-of-the-art inpatient unit in Clapham or in patients’ own homes in the community. This is all underpinned by successful retail and fundraising operations, a strong executive team, a supportive and engaged board and a stable financial position.

The role of Director of People is a critical leadership position within the organisation and, as a key member of the Hospice Executive Team, will lead the implementation of the People Plan for the ~350 staff and ~400 volunteers for Royal Trinity Hospice and Trinity Hospice Shops Ltd. In conjunction with Executive Team and Trustee colleagues, the Director of People will be responsible for developing an organisational culture which is inclusive, empowering, and promotes a common understanding of strategic objectives to deliver positive and sustainable change. Trinity is a leader in the sector for promoting equality, diversity and inclusion through our FREDIE work and this role will champion this activity across the organisation.

We are an ambitious and forward looking organisation with a clear strategy for the future, with the goal of reaching even more people in our community who would benefit from our care. This is an exciting time to be joining our organisation.
