We are seeking to appoint a medical member for our governing Council. The GMC‘s primary role is protecting the public. You will join us at a very exciting point as our corporate strategy shifts the emphasis of our work from acting when things have gone wrong, to supporting all doctors to deliver the highest standards of care across the UK.
We are responsible for setting the standards for medical students and doctors, for supporting them in achieving and exceeding those standards, and for taking action whenever these are not met. We work hard to promote professionalism and a culture of learning. The Government has recently announced that we will regulate physician associates and anaesthesia associates and we are now preparing for this new chapter in our regulatory work.
Learning and insight isn’t just for our registrants – it applies to us too and underpins everything we do to be a modern more active and proportionate regulator. The Council is comprised of 12 members (6 lay and 6 medical). It sets our strategy, defines our high-level policies and is responsible for making sure that we fulfil our statutory and charitable purposes.
The current vacancy is open to medical applicants currently GMC registered and licenced to practise from anywhere in the UK. Applicants for this role must be able to contribute to setting strategy, exercising oversight and ensuring effective corporate governance. The time commitment for the role will be up to three days a month and remuneration is £18,000 per year.
If you are interested in helping academics and policymakers talk to each other more effectively and you know how to make that work in digital space, then this job is for you.
SPRE is looking for someone who can help manage the project’s own digital tools and also offer guidance to our research and policy partners on how technology can help them work together.
If you agree with us that evidence-informed policy is better policy, then why not join us and help make it happen.
This is a remote working opportunity and could be based anywhere in Scotland, but it will involve regular travel to meetings around Scotland.
This is a new post in which you will play a key role in establishing SPRE’s presence in digital space. Broadly the role can be divided into two parts:
SPRE is a relatively new project and the postholder may be asked to take on tasks beyond their brief from time to time, although support and appropriate training will be provided. Occasional work outside office hours may also be required.
The Scottish Policy and Research Exchange supports researchers and officials as they seek smart solutions to policy challenges. It is a network of professionals working together to deliver evidence-informed policy in practice.
The project is predicated on the belief that research-informed policy is better policy. It is committed to the idea that the effective use of research and evidence can improve both how policy is made and the outcomes it produces. Increasing the diversity of the voices contributing to the evidence base for policy is a particularly important focus.
The project is supported by institutions across the Scottish policy and academic sectors.
This is more than a job; it’s a career that supports people to live life to the full.
We are looking for resilient and friendly Support Workers to join a team working alongside autistic people encouraging them to live as independently as possible and to be part of their local community. As a Support Worker you will promote positive health and well-being of the people that you support, enabling them to have a meaningful life and be involved in a range of activities.
At Autism Initiatives we provide specialist services tailored to each individual. Experience is not essential, but a genuine passion to making a difference to the lives of autistic people, as well as a positive attitude, is key to being successful in this role.
In return, we will provide you with ongoing training and development, including supporting you to obtain your SVQ Level 3 qualification, if required. Given the nature of this role, successful applicants must register with the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme and Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) or equivalent regulatory body.
This is a truly rewarding role, with the opportunity for you to develop your skills and knowledge and fulfil your career aspirations.
