Faculty Training & Education Manager
Faculty Training & Education Manager
£36,000 - £38,100 per annum
Fixed Term Contract for 1 Year, Full time
The Faculties department looks after the work of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) and the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM).
The Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine is a relatively new addition to the world of health, created in 2010. It remains on an exciting trajectory of growth, with a Board, four Standing Committees and a number of Sub-Committees, working parties and hosted groups now handling its important functions, which include both its future strategic aims and its current foundation activities. It values innovative thinking and fresh ideas.
The Faculties operate like Colleges in a microcosm and therefore get the opportunity to work across a wide range of activities, including curricula, assessments, quality, e-Portfolio, e-Learning, recruitment, membership, events, examinations, patient engagement, publications, consultations, communications, academia and revalidation. We work with our Deans, Board Members and Committee Members, our Fellows and Members, patient representatives, ICM and Pain Medicine trainees, Presidents and members of other Royal Colleges, the GMC and the Deaneries … to mention just a few. All of the team have their own areas of responsibility and expertise as well as shared areas. Everyone mucks in when required!
The department is now seven strong, but sits within the wider Royal College of Anaesthetists with over 100 staff.
This diverse role, supporting a number of key areas across the FICM, offers you a fantastic opportunity to expand your experience as well as work in a professional and friendly environment.
The successful candidate will be an organised and confident individual with highly developed administrative skills, who will thrive on the challenge of balancing competing and changing priorities of a number of busy areas. The ability to work autonomously and proactively is essential.
The role will vary from advising the Faculty on its training policy and education strategy, to ensuring the smooth delivery of events and managing high-level boards and committees. You will therefore need to possess outstanding communication skills to enable you to produce excellent minutes and reports, quickly develop close working relationships with key stakeholders, and represent the Faculty at external meetings.
The role also provides an opportunity to develop your project support skills through managing the development of the first ever full review of the ICM curriculum and managing our project to move to a new e-Portfolio system. Your team members will need you to be an approachable and positive line manager, who takes an effective overview of their work and gives sound support. Additionally, a methodical and conscientious approach to work is a must, as is flexibility and enthusiasm to contribute to the wider team aims.
The successful applicant will have:
- previous experience of working in a membership organisation and/or the medical education sector would be beneficial, and customer service experience
- an understanding of, and the ability to put in to practice, line management duties and principles
- strong organisational skills and communication skills, both written and verbal
- a demonstrable ability to understand, interpret, and simplify complex information from a variety of sources
- educated to degree level (or equivalent), or qualified by experience
- training and/or qualification in project management is desirable
