The Royal College of General Practitioners is the largest membership organisation solely for GPs in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1952, it has over 55,000 members who are committed to improving patient care, developing their own skills and promoting general practice as a discipline. General practice is the largest branch of the medical profession. It provides some 1 million consultations for patients in the UK every working day and deals with 86% of the health problems experienced by the UK population.

The Projects Officer will be responsible for developing and supporting a range of projects and continuing professional development (CPD) activities within the Projects and Initiatives Team. This includes being responsible for the development of a newly funded programme of support aimed at mid-career GPs, as well as providing general project administration for other project activity.

Adept at managing competing deadlines and demands, the post holder will be able to work methodically to achieve targets. Experience in planning and organising meetings and events and effectively marketing to the target audience is a requirement of the role, as well as experience of budget management and processing invoices.
