The General Medical Council’s Strategy and Policy directorate is seeking an Education Policy and Research Officer to help deliver our work in medical regulation.

The GMC helps to protect patients and support doctors in the UK by setting and assuring standards for students and doctors throughout their training and in clinical practice, and by setting and assuring standards for organisations who provide medical education and training.

In this role, you will work closely with data analysts, social researchers and policy experts to support the delivery of evidence-based reports to help ensure doctors receive training that meets our standards, and that patients receive good quality, safe care. A key part of this role is the external communication of the reports you produce, so you will also work with communication colleagues to develop campaigns to support the promotion of your work.

To be successful in this role, you will require enthusiasm, flexibility and initiative, and the ability to work well with others. Excellent communication and organisational skills are a must, as is an aptitude for solving problems. You will also need experience of data sourcing and a broad understanding of social research and analysis methods that contribute to evidence-based outcomes. The work is interesting and varied and you must also be happy to get involved in routine aspects as well. Above all, we expect a commitment to the values of an organisation that is focused on patient safety.

In return, you’ll benefit from being part of an organisation that is genuinely committed to its people. We offer an attractive salary and benefits package.

Closing date: Monday 21st May 2018 at midnight

Assessment Centres: Thursday 7th and Friday 8th June 2018

2nd Stage Interviews: Thursday 21st June 2018
