Project Officer - SharePoint Migration (2 year fixed term contract)

Project Officer – SharePoint Migration

General Medical Council (GMC)

Manchester: Up to £30k

Fixed term contract of 2 years (x 1 vacancy)

The General Medical Council (GMC) works to improve medical education and practice nationwide. We’re currently looking for a talented Project Officer to join the department of information security and records management on a fixed term basis. The main purpose of this diverse and challenging post will be to provide project planning, detailed data analysis, data mapping and administrative support during the GMC’s SharePoint EDRMS migration project. Your role will be to help create a secure and user-friendly service for the whole organisation, by working with staff to understand which information to migrate and how it needs to be structured. Essentially, you will be the bridge between technical development and the people who access and save documents to our EDRMS every day. The role provides the perfect working environment to enhance technical skills, particularly on Microsoft 365 and Information and Records Management best practice. 

Supporting our talented team in Manchester, one of your main responsibilities will be business analysis, data analysis, being present at SharePoint integration workshops and collating feedback from attendees. Contribution to the design and creation of the new SharePoint EDRMS and its launch and integration within the GMC will also be an important element of the position. Liaising and developing effective relationships with colleagues will be paramount to ensure the successful running of the project. 

To succeed in this role, you must have first-class communication skills, be able to demonstrate excellent attention to detail and be confident in participating in workshops. It will be essential to enter this role with previous information and records project management experience and technical proficiency with SharePoint and all aspects of Microsoft Office 365 will be highly beneficial. As the work will involve handing sensitive and confidential material, the applicant must be discreet and have good working knowledge of Data Protection/GDPR.

You may be approaching this new role eager for a fresh challenge and to learn something new. Importantly, you'll be energetic and highly motivated. 

Join our team and you’ll be supporting a strong and stable organisation that is genuinely committed to its people. This rewarding role will allow you to positively influence a service that makes a difference to doctors and patients across the UK. 


As a hybrid role, you will be expected to come to the office 1 day a week and work from home for the rest of the week. This may increase later in the year. The GMC is happy to support a range of flexible working options. Flexible working requests will be considered in line with the policy.


We will also create a pool of appointable Project Officer talent so that we can recruit to future roles quickly to meet the GMC's project business needs. If you meet the standard for the appointment, but you are not offered a role in the first instance, you will join the Project Officer pool for six months. If further roles from across directorates become available, we will use the appointable pool from this campaign if applicable. 

In return for your hard work, you’ll get

  • Up to £30,000 per year, reviewed annually
  • 25 days holiday a year, increasing by one day for each year of service up to a maximum of 30 days, with the option to buy and sell more
  • Flexible hybrid working – working in our Manchester/London office and from home
  • Discounts at 100s of high street and online stores
  • A generous employer pension contribution of 15%
  • Discounted on site gym membership
  • Private medical insurance
  • Employee assistance programme

  • Bike lockers and shower facilities
  • a range of learning and development opportunities designed to support your ongoing progression
