Policy Manager (15 month fixed term contract)
Develop creative, pragmatic and evidence-based policy proposals at an organisation that is key to keeping patients safe.
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.
As a Policy Manager focused on policy and regulatory development, you will craft policy and guidance to support the vital work of our Registration and Revalidation Directorate. Often working to tight deadlines, you’ll draft clear and concise documents for a range of internal and external organisations. Crucially, you will also present your proposals - and their outcomes - in person, to senior managers and stakeholders. This varied and interesting role will see you engaged in everything from setting up project workstreams, to undertaking equality analyses, to developing research and engagement activity.
To be equal to the challenge, you’ll need a range of relevant skills and experience, together with an understanding of the complex environment in which we operate. Naturally, you will bring to the role a track record of developing and implementing policy and guidance. We’ll expect you to demonstrate a flair for researching, analysing, summarising and presenting information in systematic and coherent ways. It is your ability to build relationships and influence important decisions that really sets you apart.
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. To find out more about what we can offer, click here.
We strongly believe that diversity of background and experience contributes to the broader collective perspective that will consistently lead to us being a better regulator. We are working hard to increase the diversity of our staff, and also the diversity of those we work with wherever we can and we would actively encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.
