Job Details

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Royal College of Physicians at a crucial time. The RCP is a patient centred and clinically led organisation in the health sector and is the oldest medical royal college representing hospital doctors.

The public affairs and campaigns adviser supports the development of the RCP’s influence and networks, particularly in government and Parliament, identifying opportunities to involve RCP fellows and members in our influencing work.

Working closely with the public affairs manager, you will help support our public affairs and policy work, proactively identifying opportunities to ensure the organisation is influencing the health agenda effectively on a range of topics including the NHS workforce, health inequality, sustainability and climate change and clinical research.

You will understand and be able to engage with the detail of legislation, while appreciating the bigger picture and our place in it. You will have experience of carefully analysing the external environment to spot opportunities to raise the profile of our policy priorities.

The policy and campaigns team – and the wider communications, policy and research department - is a fast paced, collaborative and innovative environment. We value the opinions and ideas of every member of the team and actively seek their contributions. You will help us set our objectives and improve the ways we work.
