With our partners (Imperial College London, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust), we form Imperial College Academic Health Science Centre; and together with Imperial College London, we host one of 20 National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) biomedical research centres (BRC).  We have a rich heritage and an ambitious vision for the future - to be a world leader in transforming health through innovation in patient care, education and research.


We are now seeking a Divisional Director of Operations for our Medicine and Integrated Care Division responsible for c2,800 staff and a budget of £180 million. This is a rare opportunity for an experienced senior leader to join our trust and lead a strong divisional team responsible for integrated care, renal, stroke and neurosciences, acute and specialist medicine, urgent care and emergency medicine, and HIV, sexual health and infection.  You will be responsible for driving operational performance and strategic development of the directorate, including for the delivery of high quality patient care, clinical governance, patient safety, clinical quality, and delivery of financial targets.  More broadly, as one of three divisional directors of operations within the Trust, you will have joint responsibility for driving forward corporate and cross-cutting programmes of work and service direction.

This is a challenging role requiring financial experience and collaborative leadership capabilities. The successful candidate will bring a track record of effective financial delivery, including efficiency savings, income and expenditure targets and an extensive understanding of managing multiple performance targets and a variety of NHS care pathways.  With excellent inter-personal, team development, leadership and communications skills, the appointed individual will be adept at building positive working relationships with senior managers, staff and a range of internal and external stakeholders.  Above all else, we are seeking an individual able to lead a collaborative vision and direction for the division.
