Chief Executive Officer

Do you believe every death matters?

At Irish Hospice Foundation we believe every death matters – and we only have one chance to get it right. Our vision is for an Ireland where people experiencing dying, death and bereavement are provided with the care and support they need.  

We are an innovative, energetic, and purposeful organisation which shines a light on specific areas of need in end-of life and bereavement support. We then actively advocate, invest, and develop responsive services and programmes.

We deliver our work through our team of skilled and compassionate staff and through partnerships with government, state organisations, other not-for-profit organisations, and a wide range of other stakeholders. 

The Board of Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) now wishes to appoint a CEO who is committed to its vision and mission. The role of the CEO is to:

• Lead the development of the IHF strategic plan and develop future strategies.

• Be lead advocate on all aspects of IHF Vision.

• Inspire and engage both internal and external stakeholders to build on the already strong impact of IHF

• Lead, empower and develop the IHF team

• Continue to build on strategic partnerships to maximise influence and impact

• Oversee the management of a broad range of programmes and services 

Ideally, candidates for the role will have a demonstrable open and inclusive leadership style. With strong advocacy skills, they will have experience developing and delivering strategic ambition, an exposure to partnership in health programmes, training and education and will have strong influencing and communications skills together with the vision to plan for the future growth and development of IHF.

This is a unique opportunity to influence positive change in the way in which people in Ireland experience dying, death and bereavement and to impact a wide range of beneficiaries through dynamic services that reflect our changing society.
