Working with doctors, working for patients

Revalidation Assistant - Fixed Term (9 months)

The General Medical Council (GMC) 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. 

Doctors must regularly show us that they’re giving good care to patients and keeping up to date – through a process called revalidation. This is how doctors keep their licence to work in the UK. The Revalidation Team support and manage all areas of the revalidation process at the GMC ensuring a timely and excellent service.  The Revalidation Team is based in Manchester city centre.

The Revalidation Assistant will be responsible for providing efficient, timely and high quality administrative support within the Revalidation Team. You’ll take responsibility for distributing the work to the team members; provide support to the revalidation team managers and advisers with regards to handling correspondence and other administrative support. The role also includes providing appropriate and timely responses to revalidation enquiries by phone, letter, email and processing applications for doctors who wish to give up their licence to practise.

You will need to demonstrate excellent organisational skills and competence in the use of IT including the Microsoft Office suite. We’re looking for a real team player with a commitment to customer service, the ability to communicate effectively and empathically with everyone from doctors, colleagues to senior staff.

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. 

The GMC values diversity and has made a public commitment to processes and procedures that are fair, objective, transparent and free from discrimination.
