North West London Pathology was created as an initiative between Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust (now part of Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust). The goal of the partnership is to develop a new shared services model for the provision of pathology services in North West London.  NWL Pathology is owned by the three Trusts, and operates with its own Board. 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Finance Director to be part of the Consortium Senior Management team and Board, providing professional expertise on finance, overseeing and managing the finances of the NWL Pathology transition phase in all aspects of commercial and financial planning. You will ensure that appropriate ledgers and accounts are set up to enable NWL Pathology to operate as a viable share service and contributing to the monitoring of contracts between the Owner Trusts and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust as the host.  

The Finance Director is a key leadership role and will advise the NWL Pathology Board on the effective, efficient and economic use of its financial resources, on remaining within those resources and ensuring delivery of local and national financial targets and duties. This includes responsibility for the effective management of income and expenditure of circa £100m.  The successful candidates will be professionally qualified with commercial finance experience.  You will have experience of working in, or closely with the NHS and have the energy and gravitas to take on this high profile position.  You will be able to alternate between strategy and operational finance fluidly, and be comfortable in a changing and dynamic organisation.
