NHS Blood and Transplant logoAs an essential part of the NHS, NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) work to make the most of every donation – from blood and organs to tissues and stem cells. We employ over 6,400 people across the UK, with a total revenue of over £600 million, delivering blood, and blood-based therapies across England; Diagnostic and Therapeutic services globally; and organ donation and supply services for the whole of the UK.

Our mission has always been to save and improve lives. As we look to the future, our ambition is to save and improve even more lives, building a world where every patient receives the donation they need. To deliver this vision, we have five priorities: growing and diversifying our donor base; modernising our operations; driving innovation into practice; collaborating with partners; and investing in people and culture.

The Opportunity

As our new Director of Communications and Engagement, you will be joining an Executive Team that is passionate and focused on delivering our ambitious strategy. We will rely on your professional communication, media and public relations skills to help us to take forward our strategy and ensure we have the reputation we need to continue to attract donors and provide high quality services to our patients and donor families.

This is a rare national leadership role that requires both the ability to engage and connect to our people across our organisation and to drive engagement externally, alongside developing our partnerships to support our vision of every patient receiving the donation they need. In doing this you will have an amazing opportunity to influence the lives of millions of people.
