Faculty Training & Education Manager

London (Holborn)

£36,000 - £38,100 per annum

Fixed Term Contract for 1 Year, Full Time 

The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) is looking for a proactive individual to join our Faculties department as the Faculty Training & Education Manager. Our Faculties department looks after the work of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) and the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM). FICM 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.

Reporting to the Head of Faculties, you will be responsible for overall operational leadership for FICM in all matters relating to training, workforce and education. You will also have specific organisational responsibility for training and curricula as well as serving as Secretary to FICM, Critical Care Leadership Forum and all relevant committees of FICM. This will involve developing excellent working relationships with the board members, agreeing agendas, writing papers and reports and providing updates as required.

Within this diverse role, you will also get the opportunity to lead the development of ongoing projects including the first ever full review of the ICM curriculum and the move to a new e-Portfolio system. This will involve acting as point of contact to deal with high-level queries, review relevant legislation and procedures as well as the current curriculum to support the introduction of an education strategy for FICM. You will also take responsibility for managing the work of the team, offering leadership and direction to the team and ensuring that regular appraisals and 1:1s are carried out to monitor team performance.

The ideal candidate for this varied role will have previous experience of working in a membership organisation or the medical education sector. You will have experience of managing high-level board and/or committee meetings and be educated to degree level, or equivalent, or be qualified by experience.

Strong organisational skills are a must as well as excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to understand, interpret and simplify complex information from a variety of sources.

Due to the nature of the role, training and/or a qualification in project management would be desirable.

Short-listed applicants will normally be provided with at least 48 hours’ notice to attend the panel interview.
