About Our Client

The Commercial Directorate within Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust) is responsible for making profits that go directly back into our NHS Clinical Services. This allows the Trust to diversify its income away from core NHS funding streams as well as to enhance our clinical, educational and research expertise. The Commercial Directorate has a wide portfolio of activities including private patients, international healthcare, intellectual property and commercial research, commercial education, NHS business development and retail services

Job Description

Reporting to the Head of Commercial Contracts and based at Guy's Hospital near London Bridge, the role holder will be required to engage actively with the various clinical directorates and provide professional support for commercial contracting activities ranging from business case development, negotiations with contracting parties and execution and management of agreements to involvement in strategy and contract renewals.

The role holder will work alongside the Business Development function within the Commercial department, a significant part of whose work is competitive tendering. In addition there is the need to provide professional contracting support to the other groups within the Commercial Department: Intellectual Property, Commercial, Education and Private Patients.

  • Contract approval/due diligence
  • Contract execution
  • Document management
  • Obligations management
  • Continued oversight or effective handover of all live Commercial Contracts

Optimising commercial contract management within the Trust requires an understanding of the strategy, policies and business practices of the Trust and an ability to reflect these in the contracts the Trust enters into.

The Successful Applicant

Ideally the role holder will be legally qualified.
