Almost 10,000 babies are delivered at NMH each year, most healthy and well, but many are born too early, and some are fragile and sick. Greater advancements in neonatal and maternal health will come from greater volume of quality research in this area. This is only possible with significantly greater funds being raised for the NMH Foundation.

The new executive director should be a self-starter with strong leadership skills, a proven track record in delivering funding ideally from a variety of sources and major partnerships, should be a brand-builder, good influencer and have excellent engagement experience. They should be comfortable dealing with boards and will coordinate all board activity, drive sustainable growth, and develop operations for a well-managed and ambitious organisation. 

This is a new and exciting role at a pivotal time In the development of the strategy.
