As one of the leading cancer centres in the world, with a track record of developing new and better ways of diagnosing and treating cancer, The Royal Marsden contributes to improved outcomes for patients globally.

As a specialist provider, The Royal Marsden has a responsibility to innovate and ensure that it can act as a test bed of best practice for the NHS. The Trust has a history of trialling new technology, from pioneering intensity-modulated radiotherapy techniques to developing the largest and most comprehensive programme of robotic surgery in the UK.

The Trust is also the host and founder of RM Partners, one of 19 Cancer Alliances tasked with trialling and rolling out new models of care and reducing variation in outcomes. The Royal Marsden and RM Partners are pioneering new models of care, rapidly translating clinical research into clinical practice. Its focus is on reducing variation in outcomes and transforming early diagnosis to improve cancer survival.

As Divisional Director for Cancer Services you will report to the Trust’s Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Chief Executive and be a key member of the Leadership Team. You will lead the day-to-day management of our Cancer Services Division with a budget of £103m and 1000 staff as well as working with the senior leadership team to deliver our five year strategy.

To succeed, you’ll need a strong leadership profile gained in a senior operational management role in a fast pace healthcare environment.
