As Training Coordinator you will be responsible for the monitoring and support of trainees including registration, the award of the CCT, CESR and CESR (CP) processes and attendance at careers fairs.
In addition, you will deal with the quality assurance of pathology training programmes in the UK, including externality. From time to time, you will process subspecialty applications that are made against specialty entries on the Specialist Register.
The Training Coordinator is part of the Training Department in the Learning Directorate, and works closely with the Assessment, Examinations and International Departments that are within the same area. It is a part of the coherent stream of work that dovetails with related work in postgraduate assessment and examinations.
You will have relevant experience in a similar administrative role. You will be an effective communicator with good written skills and be able to work well as a part of a team. You are able to apply a high level of accuracy and the ability to prioritise your own workload and cope well under pressure.
Pathology is at the heart of modern healthcare. Pathologists work to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor diseases and are involved in the diagnosis of disorders affecting every organ of the body, from before birth to after death. The majority of tests requested by doctors will be performed and interpreted by a clinical scientist or medically qualified pathologist.
The Royal College of Pathologists is a professional membership organisation with over 11,000 members who are doctors and scientists working in hospitals, universities and laboratories in the UK and overseas. We work with pathologists at every stage of their career – from setting curricula, organising training and running exams, to approving job descriptions, publishing best-practice guidance and providing continuing professional development.
We offer attractive staff benefits including 25 days annual leave rising with length of service, enhanced employer contributions to pension scheme, an employee discount scheme, and season ticket loans, as well as a cycle to work scheme. The College values diversity, welcoming applications for all members of society.

We are looking for a strong team-player and self-starter who is able to respond to all enquiries coming into the advice service on the current Advice Officer’s non-working days.
Our Advice Officer, who works 2.5 days a week, will retain overall responsibility for recording enquiries that come in, preparing summaries of enquiries and analysing themes, identifying case studies for training or media work, and answering enquiries 3 days a week. You will respond to advice enquiries on the other two days, working directly with the Programmes Director on any more challenging enquiries that require a response beyond giving individual advice. For example, Birthrights might write directly to a Trust or raise themes from our advice work with the Royal Colleges. You will be an integral part of our team – we have daily short team check-ins at lunchtime each day, and a team meeting every two weeks, and use Slack to communicate throughout the day.
Birthrights is a small but mighty charity, and our reputation will be in your hands. We pride ourselves on our expertise in human rights and how it applies to maternity care, and on our empathetic and supportive service. We provide information, rather than counselling or legal advice, and we refer on to other organisations when enquiries go beyond our core areas of knowledge.
Our advice service has grown from a volunteer-run service to being part of a part-time role, to a role in its own right – and we are now excited to build a team with the capacity to promote and grow the service, and respond flexibility to demand. We may be able to offer more hours in future if this is something you would be interested in.
