Location: Gerrards Cross, Bucks

Date Posted: 06/12/2019

Closing Date: 05/03/2020

Job description

TRUSTEES REQUIRED

(Unpaid – out of pocket expenses reimbursed)

Swarthmore Housing Society Ltd is an independent 40 bedded Care Home, established for over 70 years, set in beautiful landscaped gardens in Gerrards Cross. The Care Home provides palliative, respite and convalescent care for older people & for those living with a physical disability or sensory impairment. We pride ourselves on providing a safe and homely environment where the unique needs of everyone are recognised.

The home is run in accordance with Quaker values that respect the uniqueness of the individual and of their potential contribution as a member of a community.

We employ a team of 52 professional staff and have charitable status with HMRC, exempt from registration with the Charity Commission.  Our last inspection by the Care Quality Commission rated us as Requiring Improvement.

We wish to recruit new Trustees who are in sympathy with Quaker Values to join our nine-strong governing body, the Board of Trustees. We welcome applications from all sections of the community.

We are looking for people who can help provide strategic leadership and support to the professional staff to ensure that the organisation is effectively managed in line with current legislation.  Ideally the new trustees will also have skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Those with knowledge of the care sector
  • Business (Swarthmore has a turnover of around £1.5million p.a.)
  • Finance
  • Marketing

Trustees meet for a day every two months at Jordans Meeting House and are encouraged to make their own informal visits to the home between meetings.

If you are interested in becoming a Trustee please apply by letter to Malcolm Barnett, Chair, Swarthmore Quaker Care Home,31 Marsham Lane, Gerrards Cross, Bucks, SL9 8HB or by email.
