Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust (RBH)
Research Director


London, UK
1603-042L

​The role of Research Director at the Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust (RBH) is arguably one of the most influential roles in heart and lung research in the UK, leading an R&D portfolio in an internationally renowned centre for heart and lung services, with a focus on excellent and innovative research and securing income from a wide variety of sources.

The institution’s brand is strong and clear: delivering the best clinical care and the best research for patients with heart and lung disease. Heart and lung diseases are the world’s biggest killers and our experts care for patients who come from across the UK and overseas, not only from our local areas. Our integrated approach to caring for patients from the womb, through childhood, adolescence and into adulthood and old age, has been replicated around the world and has gained the Trust an international reputation as a leader in heart and lung diagnosis, treatment, and research.

Research programmes play a vital role at both our hospitals. This is because the most talented medical experts are rarely content with using tried and tested methods to treat their patients. The opportunity to influence the course of modern medicine by developing new treatments is a prospect that attracts them to specialist centres, where research opportunities are a fundamental part of delivering patient care. As well as travelling internationally to lecture and share their knowledge, our clinicians hold prominent positions on influential boards, committees, institutions and professional associations.

The Trust is seeking a Research Director to oversee R&D across RBH, including management of staff and budget, and leading on research innovation. Beyond an ability to influence policy both in the UK and internationally, this individual will also be able to create opportunities for income generation from research conducted at RBH, as well as securing funding for research from partners in the public, private and third sectors. They will advise the Board on changes and innovations in research practice or policy in relation to cardiovascular and respiratory medicine and science, and influence the Trust more broadly as a member of the Trust’s Senior Management Team. There will also be the opportunity to link academically with Imperial College London.

This individual needs to be a research scientist with a business mind, and with the ability to run the R&D portfolio at RBH as an enterprise that serves patients effectively and efficiently. Academic credibility is a must, in an area relating to cardiovascular or respiratory science or medicine. Clinical qualification and/or applied research capabilities are not required but both are desirable. The successful candidate will bring senior management experience, preferably at Board or equivalent level. Candidates should also be able to demonstrate the capacity to drive the translation of innovative research into development of effective products and services for patients, and a commercial mindset and the skill to work with the wider executive team to capitalise on income generation opportunities.

Russell Reynolds Associates has been appointed to handle this appointment for RBH. For further information about this role please follow the link below to the position specification, or call +44 (0) 20 7198 1870 for further assistance.

Help for Heroes
Chief Executive


Downton, UK
1603-059L

H4H is based at Downton, near Salisbury in Wiltshire. The Chief Executive will be expected to spend a substantial amount of time there, as well as fulfilling a wider, national remit.

Founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in 2007, Help for Heroes has grown to become one of the best known charities in the UK. What was initially a fundraising and grant-giving charity now delivers its own recovery programmes direct to beneficiaries, with the capacity and capability to support British armed forces’ service personnel and veterans who have had life-changing injuries, both physical and mental, as a result of conflicts, training exercises and the rigours of normal service.

It is now time for the Founders to pass on the leadership challenge. Help for Heroes is therefore seeking an energetic, forward-thinking and progressive Chief Executive to pilot the organisation through further growth and development. The new Chief Executive will provide operational leadership to a complex, national organisation, working with the Board to set and implement a strategy, and acting as an important external face for Help for Heroes across a range of stakeholders, including the British armed forces, the private sector, and government.

This is a role for an experienced leader with the appropriate blend of charisma and organisational skills and, above all, a strong empathy with the cause for which Help for Heroes stands. This is likely to mean some prior interaction with, or direct experience of, the British armed forces. The ideal candidate will have had a substantial leadership role, probably in the private sector, and will be able to point to a track record of achievement in driving change, drawing on commercial skills and working successfully with, and through, others.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Chief Financial Officer


Cambridge, UK
1604-030L

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) is one of the leading teaching hospitals in the UK, recognised as a centre of excellence and innovation. With an income of more than £694 million and a staff of over 8000, the Trust provides a full range of services to the local community, and also enjoys a national reputation for a range of specialist services including transplantation, cancer, neurosciences, paediatrics and genetics. A teaching hospital with a worldwide reputation, CUH is a key partner in the development of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, and is one of only five academic health science centres in the UK. It enjoys close links with the University of Cambridge and with the private sector, presenting exciting opportunities for growth and innovation in a rapidly changing NHS environment.

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) will join the recently appointed Chief Executive and senior leadership team in helping to steer CUH through its next phase of growth and development. Whilst there are short-term pressures to improve performance and efficiency and to manage costs effectively, the longer-term focus of this role will be on the development and exploitation of strategic and commercial opportunities to ensure that CUH continues to provide the highest quality service. The CFO will sit on the Trust board, and lead a team of circa 150.

Candidates for this important, high profile role will be qualified accountants with substantial experience in leading finance teams in complex organisations. Whilst a background in the NHS is not a prerequisite, some experience of working in an analogous environment, in which customer service and research play important parts, will be important. A record of delivering change, leading teams and developing and implementing strategy, alongside a strong commercial mind-set, will be important characteristics of the successful candidate.

There is scope to include other functions in the role, as the broader leadership team is developed.
