Job Details

The President is the most senior post in the College, with a national and international leadership position in psychiatry. This new role will directly support the work of the recently-elected College President, Dr Adrian James, as he takes forward an ambitious set of priorities.

We are looking for a dynamic individual who can work across a wide range of policy areas, and with staff across the organisation, to ensure the President is provided with high quality and relevant information for meetings and events.

The successful candidate will understand the importance of identifying and seizing opportunities to promote College policy and achieve change, ensuring there are clear objectives for the President’s engagements.
