Are you looking for an exciting Project Manager role that gives you an opportunity to join an organisation which makes a real difference?

The General Medical Council helps to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. We support them in achieving and exceeding those standards and take action if they don’t. The medical profession is one of the most diverse in the UK and as their regulator we aim to attract greater diversity across our workforce and frontline roles. We want to foster a culture of inclusivity in healthcare and our own organisation.

We strongly believe that diversity of background and experience contributes to a broader collective perspective that will consistently lead to us being a better regulator. We are working hard to increase the diversity of our staff, and also the diversity of those we work with wherever we can, and we would actively encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.
