Care to join us
Monklands Replacement/Refurbishment Project (MRRP)
We’re in this for the long-haul – are you?
Providing an exceptional level of patient-centred care is a primary concern for NHS Lanarkshire. We want the local population to have access to high-quality facilities, and as such, we have decided that Monklands District General Hospital in Airdrie needs to either be completely refurbished or replaced with a state of the art hospital that will better serve the needs of the locality. We are therefore delighted to be recruiting for a Project Director to oversee NHS Scotland’s investment in this new estate that will cost in excess of £500million. It’s a particularly important challenge for us, so we are seeking an experienced individual to guide us through this fascinating journey.
Taking on this flagship project, you will bring together the outline business case for the final specifications of the new facilities. Our strategy currently dictates that the new facility will be around 400-500 beds and will be supported by the further development of centres for trauma, orthopaedics, cancer, general surgery, training and research. You will therefore be tasked with ensuring the project meets its targets, including securing a development partner through a tendering process, and finalising the design of the new hospital in 2019 with the full project anticipated to last around 10 years. You will manage every element of this new build including business case development, project organisation, plans, controls, risk management, project quality, configuration management and change control.
Working with a variety of stakeholders such as other local authorities, contractors, the general public and healthcare professionals, you’ll need excellent verbal and written communication skills. Educated to Masters level or equivalent, with a project management and appropriate professional qualification, you’ll have knowledge of NHS or other public sector capital planning and extensive experience of leading multi million pound construction projects. Strong leadership, analytical and organisational skills are essential, and you’ll be an excellent negotiator with the intellectual capacity to develop big-picture thinking.
This is a hugely important project that will transform the health outcomes of the local community, so if you’re ready to take this exciting challenge to the next level, we look forward to hearing from you.
