Do you have an extensive audit and/or financial background and board-level experience in an executive/non-executive role? If so, the General Medical Council (GMC) is seeking to co-opt one external member onto its Audit and Risk Committee for an initial period of four years.

The GMC has an important regulatory healthcare remit, protecting patients, improving medical education for students and trainee doctors in the UK and supporting doctors throughout their careers. Our operational remit is delivered by 1400 staff working across four countries, supported by high quality back office services. Our audit activities are highly visible, supporting business performance, helping us learn when things don’t work as well as we would like and adding value to the continuous improvement we strive to achieve.

It is a challenging time, but as our Corporate Strategy sets out, we have an ambition for change. The Audit and Risk Committee plays a vital role in providing assurance to Council that operational and strategic activities are supporting us in delivering the Strategy.

Working with the GMC is an extremely rewarding role. As a new co-opted member, you will be joining at an important and challenging time as we work to support doctors and to protect patients in health systems that are under pressure like never before.

The Audit and Risk Committee meets six times a year, four times in London and two times Manchester. Its role is to provide oversight of the GMC’s governance, risk management and internal control practices. The Committee performs its role by providing a structured, systematic oversight of the organisation’s governance, risk management and internal control practices. It assists Council, and management, in fulfilling its responsibilities by monitoring the integrity of the GMC’s financial statements and monitoring and reviewing the activities and performance of our co-sourced internal audit and external audit

Your expertise will be vital to optimising the Committee’s effectiveness and in enabling us to provide assurance on the important work we do on behalf of millions of patients.

You should have experience of working on boards at a senior level as well as recent, relevant financial experience and be a chartered accountant with a professional qualification from one of the accountancy bodies. Strong knowledge and an understanding of audit, risk management and corporate governance is essential, as is experience of a non-executive role on an audit committee.

You should have an understanding of the duties and responsibilities of a regulatory body and an interest in regulation and the healthcare professions.

You will also need the ability to think and act strategically, influence others and consider the bigger picture as well as detail. With a high degree of integrity, you must be able to comply with the GMC members’ code of conduct and the Nolan Principles of Public Life.

In order to be considered for appointment to do this important work, you will need to submit an application. Please visit jobs.gmc-uk.org for more information and the application documents. Fees will be paid for attending meetings.
