Formal Interview Date: Late November
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) is the membership body for paediatricians, and advocates for children in the UK and around the world. Founded in 1996, we play a major role in postgraduate medical education, professional standards, research and policy. The College has over 20,000 members and fellows, both in the UK and internationally, and employs around 170 staff across the UK. We exist to transform child health through knowledge, innovation and expertise, and to create a healthier future for children and young people across the world.
Ours is a young and energetic College with an enviable reputation for making a difference where it matters. Children and young people themselves are involved in everything we do. We are looking for an exceptional candidate to lead our team, working closely with the Board of Trustees and Council, to continue to build on our success in supporting paediatricians, and improving the health of children and young people, not only in the four nations of the UK but worldwide.
You will deliver the new College Strategy, which outlines an ambitious and inspiring agenda to harness knowledge, data and intelligence to improve the quality of care for children and young people. Together with a modern, progressive and collaborative approach, you will encourage others to speak with confidence and authority on the health issues that matter to children and young people, and on policies that speak to our values and our mission. You will work closely with our elected officers, trustees, staff and partners to develop our communities, support members throughout their careers and attract new recruits, ensuring the College is financially sustainable and well-resourced to deliver its mission, through the development of new income streams and commercial partnerships.
You will inspire, motivate, develop and support members and staff to maintain the College’s reputation for excellence in its advocacy for children and young people; its educational programmes for clinical staff; and its high-impact programmes for children and young people, both nationally and globally. This is a fantastic time to join the College.
RCPCH wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. 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.
