Director of Facilities and Estates
We are an ambitious organisation seeking an outstanding individual, committed to delivering the best quality care and safest environment for our patients and staff.
With a new executive leadership team in place and clear focus on quality, there has never been a more exciting time to join Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust. In its most recent report, the Care Quality Commission described significant improvements across our services and we are determined to build on this progress - our new Director of Facilities and Estates will play a key role in making this happen.
BSUH is the regional teaching hospital, with more than 8,000 staff, providing general acute services to Brighton and Hove and Mid Sussex and tertiary services for patients across Sussex and the South East of England. Working as one hospital across two sites in Brighton and Haywards Heath, we treat more than half a million patients a year.
The Trust’s two main estates vary in both age and quality, which range from state of the art buildings, currently under construction, to Victorian buildings which are now no longer fit for purpose. A major capital programme, the 3Ts re-development, is underway to transform the Royal Sussex County site over the next 10 years.
As an experienced senior leader you will be highly motivated with a track record of delivering excellence and developing an Estate and Facilities function to provide an efficient and patient-focused service. You will have highly developed interpersonal skills, be adept at influencing change, building engagement and managing complex situations. A clear and adaptable communication style is essential to support an innovative and patient focused approach.
To drive our estate improvement plans and to lead our Facilities and Estates teams, we are keen to attract an experienced Director to ensure our clinical vision is delivered.
We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all.
This post requires travel throughout the Trust to all its sites and will also require some regional travel.
