The Royal College of General Practitioners if the professional membership body for family doctors. We are the UK's largest medical Royal College, with over 52,000 members dedicated to raising standards of patient care. Every year, over 3,000 GPs go into frontline patient care after passing the College exam. Put simply, without the College, there would be no new GPs. The RCGP is the 'voice' of general practice, representing GPs on the issues that matter most to them - and their patients - to audiences including politicians and the media. We have an exceptionally high media profile and, over the last year, have secured a record number of mentions in Parliament.
We are looking to recruit three highly-motivated colleagues to join our PR and Corporate Communications Team and help us build on our success and take the College's reputation to the next level.
As Press and Policy Assistant you will be the lynchpin of our team, monitoring our media and social media activity, organising meetings, and making sure that everything runs smoothly. You will be responsible for compiling a daily digest of College media coverage, help with press releases and the production of College publications, and act as a content editor for the staff intranet.
The successful candidate will share our corporate values.
In return, the College offers excellent terms and conditions.
