The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Executive Director of Enterprise and Business Development
Location: Newcastle
Salary: The salary will be commensurate with the level and responsibility of the post.

The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a world class health care provider, and one of the most successful teaching NHS trusts in the country. Rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC and with an annual turnover of around £970million, the Trust has maintained a strong financial and regulatory standing despite a high-pressured operational environment. A tertiary centre, it offers the second highest number of specialist services of any other hospital group in the UK, with more than 1.69 million patient contacts each year and c14,000 staff, delivering innovative, high quality services locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. With the appointment of our CEO, Dame Jackie Daniel, in Spring 2018, The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has developed ambitious plans for its services and partnerships, to support the health and wellbeing of the populations we serve. Our future strategy is grounded in recognising that the Trust’s impact on the City, region, and beyond, will be maximised when it works in partnership with those around it.

As the Trust continues to look ahead, we are looking for an Executive Director of Enterprise and Business Development who will build on these growing relationships, and the 10 Year Plan’s emphasis on population health and wellness, using the strength of the Trust’s services and clinical specialties to underpin greater innovation and external partnership. Success will be commercial, realised by deepening partnerships and innovative developments. The Executive Director of Enterprise and Business Development will foster ideas, creativity and imagination internally, to develop and progress external relationships to generate both activity and additional income for the Trust. This will help to secure the Trust’s financial sustainability, stimulate its ability to nurture innovation, support the retention of our talented workforce, and lead to the creation of services, products and businesses that will improve health locally and globally. This role is a unique and exciting chance to bring together the Trust’s strengths and ambitions at an exciting time for the organisation and the region.

The successful candidate will arrive at a time of real positive momentum for NuTH, joining an executive team of both long-standing and new colleagues with a distinctive, ambitious brief. This is a new role, and a unique brief within the NHS, covering business development, enterprise, partnerships and strategic growth. Reporting directly to Dame Jackie Daniel, this person must bring imagination, and the demonstrable ability to develop nascent ideas into fully-fledged programmes of work, joint ventures, partnerships and new businesses. Candidates will need excellent communication and leadership skills, to work well with colleagues and wider stakeholders to kindle, encourage and secure the external relationships that will be needed to fulfil NuTH’s ambitions for the Trust, local area and international space.
