The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) is looking for an organised and efficient administrator to support the RCoA Research Team in the delivery of a large national research study and other ongoing projects.

Reporting to the Clinical Audit Manager, you will work on projects that collect data to improve patients’ lives, improve surgical outcomes, and make the NHS more efficient within the large and vibrant research community existing within UK Anaesthesia, such as the Perioperative Quality Improvement Programme (PQIP) and the Sprint National Anaesthesia Projects (SNAPs). This will involve administrative work, answering queries on help desk, meeting preparation and minute taking, producing and maintaining databases and registries in addition to delivering shorter-term research projects.

The ideal candidate will have proven success in a similar role, with experience coordinating projects / programmes of work and handling administrative work of a considerable variety and volume. You will be familiar with committee management and servicing as well as using Windows software and other IT packages.

Due to the nature of the role, you will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills with the ability to manage your time and workload effectively and work well under pressure.
