Closing date:

Interview date: 
02 October 2017

The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) is the professional body which ensures the quality of patient care through the maintenance of standards in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine across the UK. Anaesthesia is the UK’s single largest hospital specialty, playing a critical role in the care of two-thirds of all hospital patients. With a combined membership of over 21,500 Members and Fellows, including our Faculties of Intensive Care Medicine and Pain Medicine, the RCoA is the third largest Medical Royal College by UK membership.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join the College at a key moment in its development.  The organisation is undergoing a period of exciting growth and change, which you could be a part of.

This role sits within the Training team which covers a diverse range of activities in support of Anaesthetists across the UK. Activities involve working with Directors of Education and Quality, Local Postgraduate Deans, Deaneries/Local Education and Training Boards (LETBs) and the General Medical Council (GMC) in the quality assurance of Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine training across the UK. All members of the department have their own areas of responsibility and expertise as well as shared areas, and so the Quality Data Coordinator will be a key member of a busy, dynamic team.

You will deliver advice and guidance to Anaesthetic trainers and Deaneries/LETBs on quality management of anaesthesia training policy and procedural issues. You will be responsible for analysing, interpreting and reporting on data relating to the specialty’s training programme and continuing professional development, and so the role requires a high degree of confidentiality.

Your main duties will include:

  • Conducting in-depth analysis on information resulting from the General Medical Council (GMC)’s National Training Survey
  • Creating briefing packs for regional representatives and providing information and analysis on pertinent quality metrics
  • Presenting findings and analysis to trainers and trainee groups at national and local meetings, as well as College committees
  • Responding to queries regarding training quality data
  • Liaising with GMC and addressing any themes arising from the National Training Survey
  • Liaising with the Life-Long Learning Product Owners regarding the management and reporting of associated data
  • Identifying and coordinating external advisers for quality management procedures, summarising the results and providing allied Committees and the College Council with a summary report
  • Providing user support for the College’s Life-Long Learning systems
  • Providing secretarial support to allied Committees and Chairpersons

The successful candidate will have:

  • Data analysis experience; ideally within the education sector and/or medical education sector
  • Ability to understand, interpret and simplify complex data from a variety of sources in a clear and consistent manner
  • Strong organisational and communication skills; both written and verbal
  • Ability to use own initiative, solve problems and suggest conclusions/improvements
  • Proficient experience in all Microsoft packages, especially Excel
  • Previous experience of working in a membership organisation (desirable)

If you would like to apply, please provide a CV and Covering Letter addressing the following points:

  • The reasons why you are applying for this role

  • Your experience of, and ideas for, effectively communicating findings from analysis
