Without any shareholders, all surplus finance is reinvested to improve their facilities or provide public health education.

People are often surprised to learn that Nuffield Health is a charity. They are, in fact, the biggest healthcare charity in Britain, setting the standard in the sector since 1957. Putting the quality of care and satisfaction of individuals and corporations at the heart of what they do helps to improve the health of millions of people in the UK.

Their passion lies in integrated healthcare; Nuffield Health believes that prevention is as important as cure. By uniting services across the health landscape, they improve and maintain health, contain the risk of illness and disease, and provide diagnosis and treatment when it is needed.  Their focus is joined up healthcare, with end-to-end provision.

Nuffield Health is currently looking for a Director of Content to join their senior management team. The role is a new creation and will report in to the Group Chief Brand Officer.

It is an amazing opportunity to shape the future of Nuffield Health’s content; building and maintaining external perceptions of the brand and its unique position in the healthcare market. Exceptional written communication skills are a must; but personality and the gravitas to engage with the most senior internal and external stakeholders is also essential.

The successful candidate will build their own team from scratch and thus must have strong leadership and strategic skills and a sound knowledge of digital and traditional platforms. It will be a dynamic position; requiring on-going engagement at the highest levels - improving both internal and external communications.

The role is mainly based in state of the art offices in Epsom, where an on-site gym and large, subsidised cafe are offered for the benefit of workers. However, some travel to Central London and the wider Nuffield community would be required. Colleagues are actively encouraged to strike a proper work – life balance, with remote working and flexible hours - especially since overall wellbeing is one of the company’s core principles.

Nuffield Health puts great emphasis on continuous professional development, with a strong team in place to assist in career development and on-going learning for its eleven thousand employees. Progression is taken very seriously and personal learning programmes are defined for individuals to follow.

The company is very driven by its core values– Enterprising, Passionate, Independent and Caring. The successful candidate will need to embrace these and show a real passion for the brand and its objectives.  In return, they will enjoy an excellent working environment, free healthcare, free gym membership and a generous remuneration package.
