Project Officers (fixed term contracts)

Are you looking for an exciting Project Officer role that will give you an opportunity to join an organisation which really makes a difference?

The General Medical Council helps to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. We support them in achieving (and exceeding) those standards and take action when they are not met. The medical profession is one of the most diverse in the UK and as their medical regulator we are seeking to attract greater diversity across our workforce and frontline roles. This will help foster a culture of inclusivity within the profession, the health system and our own organisation.

We are recruiting for various Project Officers roles within the Strategy and Policy, Fitness to Practise and Strategy Communications and Engagement directorates on a fixed term basis. The contract lengths are as follows:

They also collaborate across the healthcare landscape to understand the issues faced at local level and make sure our approach to regulation is well informed.  

 The project officers will provide key support to our business development and change mangers as they work to maximise influence, impact, and value of the Outreach Service by managing key projects, business change and by supporting the development of  Outreach offers and products.

 To be successful in this role you will have project and ideally continuous improvement skills. You will be keen to develop good working relationships and collaborate closely with teams and key stakeholders.

You will show a passion for the support and wellbeing of your colleagues and you will help to build and an inclusive working environment whilst showing compassions, respect and understanding to those you interact with.
