35 hours per week, full-time

As Associate Director for Assessment you will play a crucial role within the College by actively contributing to the management of the Division and providing guidance and leadership for the development and implementation of strategies in support of the Division’s operational plan.

Reporting to the Director of Education and Training, you will support with strategic leadership on the Division’s work whilst providing operational leadership for the Examinations and Quality & Standards departments.

Working collaboratively across the Divisions, you will inspire, motivate and work strategically with the Director to empower others, building a high-performance culture leading and supporting transformational change in both divisional business and culture.

You will also provide senior leadership in managing and collaborating with external stakeholders and regulators both in the UK and internationally, whilst undertaking senior responsibility for the management of the Division’s new digital ventures, relationships with suppliers, and other cross-Divisional projects.


Suitably qualified or with relevant professional experience, you should have proven knowledge and understanding of professional training, competency-based education, and assessment and regulatory standards.


Experience of working in a senior management role with a demonstrable ability to combine both strategic and operational leadership is essential, as is a background of initiating and leading programmes of change, generating new ideas and innovative ways of working.


A passionate leader with outstanding interpersonal skills, you should be at ease liaising with varied networks of staff and internal and external stakeholders, as well as having experience at a management level of managing multi-disciplinary personnel.


The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.


The RCPCH has more than 20,000 members and fellows and employs around 170 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We have smaller offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.


The RCPCH wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. However, the College is particularly keen to receive applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and/or candidates with a disability who are currently under-represented at this level of the organisation.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions all staff are currently working remotely. We will be returning to the office on 20 September 2021 where you will work in the office for a minimum of 60% of the week and the remainder from home.

Closing date: 10th October 2021
