Clinical Quality Administrator
London (Holborn)
£27,300 - £28,900 per annum
Fixed term contract for 15 months
Closing date: Friday 22nd February 2019

The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) is the professional body responsible for educating, training and setting standards in anaesthesia. We are looking for an experienced and organised administrator to support the delivery of the College’s representation on Advisory Appointment Committees, fulfilling the College’s statutory function, as well as coordinating the Invited Review process and Clinical Directors Network.

The purpose of this role is to administer and coordinate RCoA representation on hospital anaesthetic appointments (known as Advisory Appointment Committees) and fulfilling the RCoA’s function of promoting safety standards of practice in anaesthesia. The role also provides administrative support to the Safe Anaesthesia Liaison Group (SALG), the patient safety strategy and invited review service. It will also deliver administrative support to the Clinical Directors Network.

It is outward-facing, involving liaison with Senior Anaesthetists, including Clinical Directors and hospital HR departments. This role is largely office-based and will work closely with committee members including both clinical and lay representation.

The post holder will be joining a friendly team who deliver to the highest standards through their conscientious approach to work and therefore the successful candidate will need to be a highly motivated, proactive, flexible team player and willing to pick up routine and emerging tasks to support the wider work of the directorate. The successful candidate will have confidence, as well as excellent judgment of people and situations.

The Clinical Quality team covers a diverse range of activities in support of anaesthetists and patients across the UK. Activities include providing professional advice to enquiries from the public and professionals, administrative support in the recruitment of consultants and management of patient safety issues.

The role requires a high degree of confidentiality and the successful candidate will have administrative, IT, committee servicing and organisational skills, underpinned by an eye for detail, proactivity and an instinct for multitasking.

You will be a natural and methodical organiser and be able to use these skills not only to effectively manage your own workload and time, but to also offer first class support to the Head of Clinical Quality and Patient Safety Manager.

Experience of working in a healthcare, training or education environment is an advantage but not essential, as is knowledge of accreditation and/or invited review schemes (either in healthcare or a different industry).

Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications, we are unable to provide detailed feedback to candidates on their application. Only short-listed applicants will be contacted after the closing date.
