St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the best-known hospitals in Britain and the star of ‘24 Hours in A&E’. It is also one of the country’s largest teaching hospitals, sharing its site with St George’s, University of London. The Trust treats over half a million patients every year, with an international reputation for quality of care and innovative research-led treatment across a wide range of specialisms. The Trust has 9,000 staff who look after 1.3 m people in widely diverse communities across South West London and beyond.
Having supported our Trust and communities through the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are now witnessing those same communities confronted with significant ongoing challenges including unprecedented demand for NHS services, pressure on front-line staff, resource constraints and challenging economic conditions. Despite the current challenges, we continue to work hard to expand our fundraising and increase our impact, working hand-in-hand with the people and communities affected by these pressures. The NHS needs our support more now than ever.
2024 marks a critical point of review for St George’s Hospital Charity, with established foundations upon which to build, and a bright future ahead. We’re now seeking a Director of Finance and Operations to take overall responsibility for the financial management and operations of St George’s Hospital Charity.
This is a role for a strong team player who is able to balance being both hands on and strategic, leading our drive for strong financial and operational development of the charity.

You will have the confidence and ability to communicate effectively across a busy senior management team, our Board, and our stakeholders and communities, and you will help us running the organisation efficiently and professionally.
