The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust (RNOH) is the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK, and is regarded as a leader in the field of orthopaedics both in the UK and world-wide.

The RNOH provides a comprehensive range of neuro-musculoskeletal health care, ranging from the most acute spinal injury or complex bone tumour to orthopaedic medicine and specialist rehabilitation for chronic back pain sufferers. This broad range of services is unique within the NHS.

As a national centre of excellence, the RNOH treats patients from across the country, many of whom have been referred by other hospital consultants for second opinions or for treatment of complex or rare conditions. 

Patients benefit from a team of highly specialised consultants, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognised for their expertise and experience. Consultants are supported in their work by nurses, therapists and other specialist clinical staff who are trained and are experts in their particular fields of orthopaedic care. 

The RNOH plays a major role in teaching, 20% of all UK orthopaedic surgeons receive training here. Our teaching and clinical effectiveness are enhanced by our work in research and development and our academic links with University College, London. Research departments at Stanmore include the Institute of Orthopaedics, the Centre for Disability Research and Innovation, the Institute of Human Performance and the Centre for Biomedical Engineering.

The RNOH works closely with other hospitals and trusts, with whom we have joint appointments to ensure maximum availability of specialist skills for patients. Our patients benefit from access to Aspire Leisure Centre which is located on site and hosts first-class facilities for able-bodied and disabled people.


The Trust has commenced an ambitious redevelopment plan for its 112 acre site with the first clinical building opened in December 2018, with three further projects due to commence on site in 2019. This post is to assist the Contracts Manager in the delivery of these projects; this is an exciting opportunity for a suitably qualified and motivated individual to join the Redevelopment Team and be an integral part of NHS transformation. The role involves project managing significant site infrastructure works, and the opportunity to be involved in larger healthcare capital developments and site rationalisation.

As a member of the management team you will be working with other estates and facilities professionals, who are dedicated to delivering a high standard of service across the directorate, you will be responsible for leading and working with other divisions to deliver a safe, fit for purpose, modern environment for patients, visitors and staff.

The successful candidate will have excellent organisational and communication skills and an ability to use their initiative.
