Head of Industry Vacancy

This vacancy closed at midnight on Tuesday 1 February 2017.

We work with a large number of leading hospitals, community and mental health providers, commissioners and universities to understand operational and clinical challenges and match them with evidenced innovation. We are also a systems integrator for our partners and considered thought leaders in the space of innovation with a national and international reach.

One of our key aims is to enable the NHS in North West London to work in closer partnership with the commercial sector. This will allow the NHS to provide a more productive market for the development, adoption, and demonstration of products and services for the benefits of patients.

The wider benefits of this are that the NHS will become a more attractive market to the commercial sector, increasing investment in the UK and improving prosperity through the creation of value and wealth along with improving the health and wellbeing of the population.

To support this we now seek a Head of Industry.

The role will require a person who:

  • Is able to deal with complex market and NHS structures;
  • Has the credibility to work constructively with clinicians and senior executives across the NHS and at all levels in the commercial sector;
  • Is committed, self-motivated and energetic in driving to the achievement of their goals.

You will be working across a complex set of relationships, challenges and innovations to contribute to service transformation.

You will be able to think laterally, build strong trusted relationships quickly, and work as a productive team member of the Imperial College Health Partners core team. You will be curious and passionate about innovation, bring an appetite for truly understanding problems, scouting for best practice and solutions, analytics, evidence and learning in everything you do, and have the ability to understand new subjects rapidly.

We offer a range of employment models including secondments and fixed term appointments.
