SEQOHS Accreditation Manager

The Faculty of Occupational Medicine is a charity committed to improving health at work. It is the professional and educational body for occupational medicine in the UK and seeks to ensure the highest standards in the practice of occupational medicine.

This is an exciting time for the Faculty. We have new premises, including event space, in Greenwich and we are keen to provide the best possible services for our members.

About The Role

The Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM) is looking for a highly successful manager to lead its flagship Occupational Health accreditation scheme – SEQOHS - at a time of exciting change and transition. The successful candidate will be experienced at project and change management and will have a passion for quality assurance and improvement.

Accreditation is a professionally-led supportive process involving self-assessment and external peer assessment to assess the quality of clinical services in relation to established standards and to promote continuous quality improvement. The SEQOHS accreditation scheme - Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health Service - is designed to raise the overall standard of care provided by Occupational Health services through assessment, accreditation and annual monitoring.

In addition to a competitive salary, reviewed annually, we offer:

  • 28 days annual leave, plus bank holidays
  • 5% employer’s pension contribution
  • Interest free train/bus season ticket loan (after qualifying period)
  • A modern and comfortable office environment, working as part of a small, supportive and friendly team.

About You

As Accreditation Manager you will oversee the accreditation process from start-to-finish and manage a small office team working with a wider team within the FOM and with SEQOHS Assessors. You will be an excellent project manager in order to deliver new developments. Working within budget, you will produce regular management reports and liaise with Assessors. The ability to build excellent, professional working relationships is essential as you will be mentoring and motivating a small team, working with national leads in Occupational Health and other stakeholders, as well as ensuring that good governance is in place and is supported.

Reporting directly to the CEO, you will have outstanding organisational skills and the ability to liaise and communicate confidently. Previous experience of successfully managing others and achieving results are essential. Experience within the Occupational Health industry would be desirable, but is not essential. The successful applicant will enjoy planning, working to deadlines, using their initiative and being part of a busy team.

The post holder will work at the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) near Regents Park initially, but from 1st July 2019, will be based at the FOM’s office in Greenwich. Occasional UK travel will be required.
