The Royal College of General Practitioners is the largest membership organisation solely for GPs in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1952, it has over 54,000 members who are committed to improving patient care, developing their own skills and promoting general practice as a discipline. General practice is the largest branch of the medical profession. It provides some 1 million consultations for patients in the UK every working day and deals with 86% of the health problems experienced by the UK population.

RCGP Scotland has an exciting opportunity for a Senior Projects Officer to manage and deliver a range of diverse projects aimed at supporting GPs to deliver the best possible care to patients. The ideal candidate will have proven project management experience, from preparation of project proposals through to implementation and completion, and knowledge in setting and managing project budgets.

You will be a self-starter with the ability to work on your own initiative with effective time management skills to deliver high quality work to tight deadlines with competing demands. You will have strong written and verbal communication skills with the ability to develop effective marketing strategies to promote activities and raise the profile of projects.

You will have the expertise to provide line management support to other members in the team in the absence of the team manager, with the ability to support and motivate and to build effective working relationships with both colleagues and external stakeholders alike.

This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in activities which support GPs at all stages of their career, and which will improve primary healthcare in Scotland.

This role is offered on a permanent full-time basis of 35 hours per week. The role will involve hybrid working with a minimum of two working days in the Edinburgh office in the city centre. We offer flexible working hours Monday to Friday.

If you’re enthusiastic, driven, and want a role where you can really make a difference to the organisation and your own career, we want to hear from you.

The successful candidate will share our corporate values. In return, the College offers excellent terms and conditions.
