The Royal College of General Practitioners is the professional body for GPs with over 53,000 members worldwide. Our purpose is to encourage, foster and maintain the highest possible standards in general medical practice. We advocate on behalf of GPs, their wider teams and patients at the highest levels, and promote the crucial role of general practice in the NHS.

The Assistant Director of Policy, Research and Campaigns is accountable for the strategic development and implementation of the College’s policy, research, and campaigns programmes. Overseeing around 15 staff, the role is responsible for ensuring that the College represents the views of its members to policy makers and opinion formers at the highest levels and shapes the future of general practice and the wider NHS.

This is an exciting opportunity for an inspiring leader with a strong track record of policy innovation and high-level influencing. You will be adept at driving delivery within a complex and fast changing organisational environment and will work closely with the Chair of Council to ensure that the contribution of general practice and the work of GPs is recognised and valued in the health and wider political landscape. You will play a key role in engaging with senior stakeholders, developing the general practice evidence base, and supporting innovation and research.

You will be expected to be an active member of the College’s senior management team, sharing corporate accountability for the achievement of strategic and business plans, acting as a role model demonstrating the College’s values in action and encouraging a positive working culture.

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