General Manager - David Nott Foundation - London, with regular international travel - £60,000

The David Nott Foundation was established with a simple mission: to provide the surgeons and medical professionals working in the most hostile environments with the skills and the confidence to save more lives.

Founded and led by renowned British surgeon David Nott, the Foundation travels to some of the most dangerous and disadvantaged places in the world. We are the only charity to work alongside surgeons at the frontline, providing cutting-edge training to medical professionals – when and where they need it most.

By working side by side with surgeons around the world, our impact resonates long after our team has left. Because the knowledge and techniques we teach are shared, we go on to improve the lives of whole communities for years to come.

The Role

The Foundation is seeking a General Manager (GM) to help deliver the implementation of their ambitious strategy to bring the best in surgical teaching to those who need it most. 

The GM is an exciting position within the Foundation and will ensure its plans are grounded in practical reality. The role will have managerial oversight for the systems that support their successful and growing activity. This includes Finance, Risk, Contracts and IT and the delivery of the business plans that lie behind these developments.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate solid managerial skills and a thorough understanding of, and enthusiasm for, the Foundation’s mission.
