Theory Examination Assistant

£20,400 per annum plus excellent benefits

London WC1 and home-based

28 hours per week, part-time to be worked over 4 or 5 days per week

As Theory Examination Assistant, you will be responsible for providing administrative support for the successful operational delivery of College examinations, along with contributing to the development and implementation of IT systems and processes to enhance the College’s service.

Acting as first point of contact for UK and overseas examination candidates, the Theory Examination Assistant is an integral role within the Education and Training Division, in which you will provide effective customer service to candidates from application to the delivery of results.

Reporting to the Theory Examination Manager, you will ensure the accurate allocation of candidates to centres, processing of examination and application entries and processing the payments. You will also check, organise and send results to candidates upon completion.

In addition, you will also assist in the development and implementation of improved systems and processes using new and existing technology/software platforms, including the College website, booking system, databases and exam delivery platforms.

Educated to a good standard and with excellent interpersonal skills, you should have substantial administrative and customer service expertise along with the ability to accurately deal with a high volume of critical data and financial records. You should also be able to multi-task and liaise efficiently and effectively with a wide variety of internal and external stakeholders.

A background in exam administration, education or training, or experience of working in, and supporting the work of, a membership body would be advantageous.

The Theory Examination Assistant will occasionally be required to travel both inside and outside of London, with overnight stays needed as appropriate. In addition, it may sometimes be necessary to work outside of the core College hours of 9am to 5pm, along with providing occasional weekend support.

The Education and Training Division sets and monitors standards for the training and assessment of doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK and overseas. It also sets, monitors and administers the College examinations (MRCPCH and DCH), whilst making recommendations on the training of paediatricians including GMC certification.

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.

The College operates a flexible and modern working policy, whereby our colleagues work in the office for a minimum of 40% of the week and the remainder from home.
