Job Details

Join the Royal College of Anaesthetists to work on some of the biggest issues facing our members, healthcare and the work of anaesthetists - the largest single specialty group of doctors within UK hospitals. The Royal College of Anaesthetists is committed to improving patients’ safety, wellbeing and outcomes through the maintenance and advancement of standards in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine. Through our services, anaesthetists are well trained and supported, and we uphold a central role in the development and delivery of high quality healthcare across the UK, and increasingly internationally.

Anaesthetists have overall responsibility for patients’ wellbeing before, during and after surgery and work across the hospital setting, in the operating theatre, A&E, critical care and obstetrics. 16% of all hospital consultants are anaesthetists and over two-thirds of hospital in-patients will see an anaesthetist. The Royal College of Anaesthetists supports over 18,000 members and fellows and over 4,000 from the College’s associated Faculties of Intensive Care Medicine and Pain Medicine.

Reporting into the Director of Communications and External Affairs, this role will be responsible for effecting change through policies, public affairs and public engagement. The College has a growing influential profile with policy makers and parliamentarians, and this is an exciting time to join us to lead and further develop our policy and public affairs work as we embark on launching a new Centre for Perioperative Care.
