Working with doctors, working for patients

Clinical Assessment Centre Team Coordinator

Play a key role in the smooth running of an examination and assessment centre that is dedicated to ensuring patient safety.

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. 

You will join the Assessment Delivery Team at our Clinical Assessment Centre (CAC) in Manchester which is used for a number of examinations and assessments and for examiner and assessor training. As a Clinical Assessment Centre Team Co-ordinator you will make sure assessments happen without a hitch. We’ll rely on you to maintain schedules of work and events and to prepare the environment - from arranging materials through to allocating examiners. You’ll take responsibility for a small team of Technicians who will look to you for guidance, support, coaching and training, as well as keep specialist equipment in stock and research new equipment we may need. Along the way, you’ll be a key point of contact for external parties, including the Examiners who carry out assessments and the marking bureau.

Ideally, you’ll have experience of working in an assessment centre or clinical skills area and demonstrate an understanding of exam principles and processes. But if you’re a quick and committed learner, with a positive attitude none of this is essential. You will certainly need to demonstrate excellent organisational skills, how proactive you are and competence in the use of IT including the Microsoft Office suite. A real team player with a commitment to customer service, you have the ability to communicate effectively and empathically with everyone from doctors and examiners 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.
