Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust (GOSH) is seeking to appoint an inspirational Delivery Director to lead the construction of the hospital’s new state of the art Children’s Cancer Centre.

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust (GOSH) is a national centre of excellence in the provision of specialist children's health care, currently delivering the widest range of specialist care of any children's hospital in the UK. It is the only specialist Biomedical Research Centre for paediatrics, the largest centre in the UK for children with heart or brain problems, and the largest centre in Europe for children with cancer. It works in partnership with the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH), part of University College London, and together they form the largest paediatric research and teaching centre in the UK.

The Children’s Cancer Centre Delivery Director is a new role which will be key to achieving GOSH’s strategic ambitions and to ensure the collaboration between a number of complex work streams required to deliver a transformative new cancer service and centre as part of the wider redevelopment of Great Ormond Street Hospital. The appointed candidate will lead the delivery of this iconic and complex project from planning through to construction and completion, being accountable to the Trust Board and Executive Committees and the GOSH Charity, leading engagement with GOSH stakeholders, and leading a diverse internal and external project team.

We are seeking an individual with significant and proven experience in project leadership roles across large-scale, technically complex programmes in a comparable context. You will have excellent programme oversight and governance skills, together with a demonstrable track record of leading complex, major construction projects from planning and procurement through to delivery and completion, in a live, operational environment. The role calls for an individual that shares the GOSH values and who has exceptional interpersonal, leadership and stakeholder management skills with a clear enthusiasm and passion for delivering world-class healthcare facilities.

The role offers a truly unique and compelling opportunity to lead the delivery of a once in a generation, state of the art Cancer Centre for one of the world’s most prominent children’s hospitals, creating an environment that in turn will make a fantastic difference to patients, their families and society.
