St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is seeking to appoint a Head of Capital Projects.

St George’s is one of London’s biggest and busiest hospital Trusts. We provide services out of two main hospital sites (St George’s Hospital in Tooting and Queen Mary’s Hospital in Roehampton), as well as health centres, GP surgeries, schools and people’s homes. With over 9,000 staff, St George’s serves a population of 1.3 million across southwest London. A large number of services, such as cardiothoracic medicine and surgery, neurosciences and renal transplantation, also cover significant populations from Surrey and Sussex, totalling around 3.5 million people.

Now is an exciting time to join St George’s, as we embark on the development and realisation of our new 5-year Strategy - Delivering outstanding care, every time – and the ambitious plans to improve our estate and environment that will support this.

As part of our new strategy to deliver outstanding care, our forthcoming estates strategy will include a bold capital investment plan consisting of a diverse spectrum of projects ranging in value from £250k to £50m to ensure the realisation of our key priorities for the estate. As a result, we will need a well-resourced and high calibre capital projects team to lead the delivery of the programme.

We are therefore seeking to appoint a Head of Capital Projects. This role is key to achieving St George’s ambitions and an influential part of the Estates leadership team, with specific remit for leading the delivery of the Trust’s ambitious capital development programme. Reporting to the Assistant Director of Capital Projects, the post-holder will oversee the management of the capital delivery team, ensuring high performance and efficient delivery of projects.

We are seeking an individual with a proven track record in a senior project and programme leadership role across complex capital projects, with excellent stakeholder management skills and a proactive approach to team leadership. Experience of having worked on capital projects and programmes with comparable characteristics to those found at St George’s would be particularly advantageous.

The role offers a great career opportunity to lead a team in the delivery of world class healthcare facilities across one of the UK’s most widely recognised NHS Trusts. The Candidate Brief can be viewed and downloaded at

The closing date for applications is 11 October 2020. Interviews are scheduled for 26 October 2020
