Head of Operations

Are you an experienced strategic and operational leader? Would you like a role supporting the development and delivery of cutting-edge health innovation? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive cities? 

The Leeds Centre for Personalised Medicine and Health accelerates the research, evaluation and adoption of new treatments and technologies that move away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We aim to improve health in a healthy economy, underpinned by the best research and education. We are committed to driving forward innovative approaches that support the whole person, and shift the focus from one of disease, to one of health.

We are going through an exciting period of growth and change. As part of the Leeds Academic Health Partnership, and supported by the University of Leeds and Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network, we are accelerating our ambition to transform the health, wealth and wellbeing of our citizens. Through the development of our ‘precision prevention’ flagship projects, focussed on the prevention of frailty and the early diagnosis of cancer, we are driving forward a strategy to improve health and care, generate inclusive economic growth and demonstrate academic excellence and impact.

To support our growth, we are seeking a Head of Operations to provide overall operational leadership and business management. As an integral senior member of the team, you will contribute to the leadership, development and delivery of the Centre’s vision, strategic objectives, and sustainability.

You will have at least a Masters degree or equivalent experience in a science, technical or business discipline, with extensive senior experience of strategic and operational management at the interface between academia, healthcare and business in a public or private sector organization.
