Managing Director of South West London Procurement Service

Salary of circa £115k – more available for an exceptional candidate

The South West London Procurement Service (SWLPS) comprises four acute trusts in the South West London STP geography: Croydon Health Services NHS Trust (host), St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Epsom and St, Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The Managing Director of the SW London Procurement Service will provide the leadership and management for all procurement across the four Trusts. We are therefore seeking an exceptional candidate with significant Director  level experience and a track record of delivering innovative and sustainable cost improvements. This is a senior and autonomous position that requires finely tuned business skills to manage multiple-partnership working and the many challenges faced whilst supporting partner Trusts. The postholder will balance the rationalisation of spend and subsequent efficiency gains with the need for a cost-effective service that also remains closely aligned to the business priorities of each partner.

As Managing Director of South West London Procurement Service, you will use your well-developed communication skills and professional credibility to build enduring and effective working relationships with a broad range of stakeholders across the partner Trusts, ensuring that service levels are both set and maintained. You will also contribute to challenging year on year cost improvement programmes.

The estimated net benefits of this collaboration (after investment) are in the region of £30-60M across a five year period.

Please refer to the attached job description for the full scope of internal and external stakeholders and working relationships.

The role is hosted by Croydon Health Services NHS Trust.
