Policy Officer (GMC3407)

Policy Officer

Are you curious? And an organised thinker? Are you keen to develop your skills within a dynamic public policy environment and play a key role in working to protect and promote the health and safety of the public?

If this is the case then the GMC, the UK’s independent medical regulator, wants to hear from you.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work within the Regulation Policy team, contributing to major public policy issues and influencing the future of medical regulation.

You are likely to be a recent graduate or postgraduate with a passion for applying structured and critical thinking to challenging issues.

You will help us respond to or help shape significant developments in the health and regulatory sectors. This could include preparing responses for external reviews, horizon scanning and helping to inform policy positions on a diverse range of issues, for example, telemedicine.

You will need to be comfortable working with senior staff and in an environment where there are often no ‘off the shelf’ answers. You will require enthusiasm, flexibility and initiative, and the ability to work well with others. The work is interesting and varied, but you must also be happy to muck in with the boring bits as well.

Knowledge of current healthcare policy issues would be advantageous. But more importantly, we expect a commitment to the values of an organisation that is focused on patient protection.

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 please click here https://jobs.gmc-uk.org/why-join-us.html

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.

The GMC is a charity registered in England and Wales (1089278) and Scotland (SC037750).
