Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Charity
Executive Director of Funding
c.£120,000 plus pension and other benefits
Cities shape our health in fundamental ways – ways that are both inherently local, driven by context and culture, but also global, and influenced by major international forces. Understanding these processes and how they can be shaped to reduce the health inequalities that characterise modern urban living, is a vital question. And that’s where Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Charity come in.
We’re part of a wider field pushing the boundaries of urban health. Based in London, we combine two strategic advantages: one of the UK’s largest charitable endowments, and one of the world’s most urban and diverse settings. Together these give us an opportunity to get under the skin of complex urban health challenges, so that what we learn here has relevance for cities around the planet.
As Executive Director of Funding, your role is to lead our ground-breaking portfolio of urban health programmes, focusing on childhood obesity, air pollution, multiple long-term conditions and adolescent mental health. Collectively we anticipate these programmes reaching over £150m in size and involving hundreds of partners from across many different sectors. We are now three years into a 10-year plan and our work looks to be having an effect, influencing national policy, public authorities, major corporations, funder practice and improving health outcomes. This is an exciting time to join us. We believe we can go much further still.
You will bring senior leadership experience of identifying innovative approaches to large scale issues and the ability to shape activity to deliver against them. A track record of working through multi-stakeholder, cross-sector partnerships and of building coalitions is essential. You will also be able to demonstrate your experience of managing funding and/or investment processes. We are keen to hear from clear strategic thinkers and powerful influencers, purposeful and determined individuals with robust judgement and an enterprising, collaborative style.
