The post holder is required to attend our office in the Pears Building, Hampstead at least once a week on Thursdays with regular attendance as needed at our locations in north London: Barnet Hospital (Barnet) or Chase Farm Hospital (Enfield) or Royal Free Hospital (Hampstead).

Contract duration – 18 months from September 2024

Our vision

Our vision is for everyone served by the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust (RFL) to have access to world-leading healthcare, delivered by a thriving workforce and driven by medical research that has a global impact. We support the 10,000 staff of the RFL and their 1.6 million patients across Barnet, Chase Farm and Royal Free hospitals and more than 30 NHS services.

What we do

Through the services we provide, and the programmes and equipment we fund, we make a profound and immediate difference to patients’ experiences of care.

Our volunteering, support hub and complementary therapy teams enhance the hospital journey for all patients – whether they live locally or come from further away to access the trust’s specialist services.

Our support of the RFL workforce enables staff to perform at their best. Spanning individual professional development and training through to organisation-wide interventions, our initiatives bolster employee resilience and mental health so they can achieve the best outcomes for patients.

We fund ground breaking research with the potential to change people’s lives, whether it is through our grant programmes, commissioned research or delivering major capital funding appeals.

Our approach

We are a solution-focused strategic partner to the RFL, helping our hospitals to go further and faster than the NHS could do alone. We believe funding decisions should be made based on strategic priority and impact, with a strong focus on co-production.

We invest in:

  • enhanced support for patients
  • vital support for our staff
  • ground breaking research and innovation
  • cutting-edge medical equipment

The generosity of our donors, fundraisers and volunteers enables us to do this.

The charity, which employs more than 80 people, is working towards becoming an employer of choice.

Job purpose

This is a pivotal role created to support an ambitious £80m fundraising appeal that will culminate in the creation of the new Royal Free London Cancer Centre.

The RFL, is one of the busiest cancer services in London, combining local care for a population of 2.5m with specialist services relied on by patients from all over the UK and beyond. By 2030, the number of people diagnosed with cancer in north central London is forecast to increase by 42% to 66,000 as the population ages.

The RFL urgently needs to increase its diagnostic, treatment, research and development capacity to meet the needs of our patients. In response, the Royal Free Charity is preparing a major fundraising appeal to support:
