Senior Economist (GMC3642)

Senior Economist

Do you enjoy considering the bigger picture and considering your organisation’s role within that? Are you a good team player? Are you keen to use your economics in a dynamic public policy environment and play a key role in working to protect and promote the health and safety of the public?

If so, we want to hear from you. This is a fantastic opportunity to work at the General Medical Council – one of the largest healthcare regulators within the UK - helping us play our part in improving UK health care post-pandemic. The GMC is an inclusive, supportive and caring organisation and you will be joining the Strategy team to help shape current and future priorities. We are a small and friendly team and look forward to welcoming your skills, experience and perspective and continuing to learn and develop together.

You will have an economics degree or postgraduate qualification and are likely to have at least five years experience working as an economist in health or social policy. You will be familiar with HMT’s Green Book methodology or similar approaches, and have experience of applying them.

You will help us implement our corporate strategy for  2021-2025, working closely with teams across GMC to ensure we are an effective, relevant and compassionate regulator for patients, the public and professionals, and as an employer. This is an exciting time to join our organisation - working with others to improve health care as the UK recovers from the pandemic.

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.

In return, you’ll benefit from being part of an organisation that is genuinely committed to its people. Within our friendly environment, you will have access to a range of learning and development opportunities designed to support your ongoing progression. We offer an attractive salary and benefits package.  To find out more please click here. 

Initially you may be home based while we implement a safe return to offices. At that point, your main office will either be in central Manchester or London.

The GMC is happy to support a range of flexible working options. Flexible working requests will be considered in line with the policy.

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

We strongly believe that diversity of background and experience contributes to a 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.
