We are committed to amplifying the voice of survivors of trafficking and slavery within ATLEU and the wider sector and to working to ensure that people with lived experience are partners in bringing the change needed. We are committed to tackling climate change. Modern slavery actively contributes to environmental harm, whilst environmental degradation is a driver of migration which leaves people at risk of exploitation.

London - Hybrid Working / Remote
Permanent, Full Time
Our client is the professional body responsible for the speciality in the UK. They have a membership of over 24,000 Fellows and Members and ensure the quality of patient care by safeguarding standards in the three specialties of anaesthesia, intensive care and pain medicine.
They also lead a cross-organisational, multidisciplinary initiative to transform the surgical pathway from the moment surgery is contemplated through to full recovery.
They are searching for an experienced policy professional to join them as a Policy Officer to deliver impact for their membership, patients, and the public across a range of strategic health policy goals.
The role sits in the Policy and Public Affairs Team and reports to the Head of Policy and Public Affairs. It will be supported, where necessary, by the Policy and Public Affairs Assistant.
In this role, you will play a critical role in the policy and influencing their work. You will collate and conduct research, forge it into credible policy proposals, and help influence Government and other stakeholders to implement it.
Internally, you may work alongside other teams in the organisation. Externally, you will liaise with a wide range of stakeholders, such as other Royal Colleges, national and local NHS bodies, MPs, and Ministers and Civil Servants in relevant Government departments.
Currently, they have two key areas of focus. Firstly, a workforce project, ‘Anaesthesia Fit for the Future’. This sets out to show the Government how many anaesthetists the NHS needs, what the makeup of ‘team anaesthesia’ looks like, and what support the team needs to deliver the best possible patient care. Secondly, work around ‘perioperative care’ – which aims to optimise the surgical pathway to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and most importantly improve patient outcomes. You will take on key areas of responsibilities in these projects, and future projects.
Diversity, equality and inclusion is an integral part of their culture so it is important to them that this is reflected in everything that they do. They welcome applications from all individuals irrespective of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or belief, disability, marital status or parental responsibilities to ensure they actively embrace an inclusive and representative culture that encourages, supports and celebrates our differences
