Council Member Recruitment

Welcome

Welcome to our recruitment website. We are delighted that you have expressed an interest in the role of Council Member of the General Medical Council (GMC).

The GMC is the independent regulator for doctors in the UK. It is dedicated to protecting patients across the four countries of the United Kingdom by ensuring high standards of medical education and practice. It does this by working with doctors, government health departments, employers, medical educators and patient groups.

The Council is the governing body of the GMC and is responsible for the overall control of the organisation and our Council Members play a critical role in setting strategy, exercising oversight and ensuring effective corporate governance. The role of Council Member is challenging and rewarding and the GMC works within a sector that is changing at an unprecedented scale and pace. The GMC has an influential role to play in the way healthcare services are delivered and its work ultimately impacts on every individual in the UK.

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all. Appointments will be made on merit. We believe that for any organisation to be successful, it needs to work with the most talented and diverse people available. We positively encourage applications from people from all sections of the community, from all backgrounds and with a broad range of experience. We undertake that your application will be dealt with fairly and that all decisions we make about it will be based on merit and your ability to meet the candidate specification.

We are looking for one Medical Member and three Lay Members through this process. In line with our constitution, one of the four appointees must live or work wholly or mainly in Northern Ireland.

If you feel that you can add value to our Council, then we look forward to receiving your application.
