Fixed-Term Contract

The Team

The Faculties Department looks after the work of the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) and the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM).

This role works with the FPM, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and has been growing from strength to strength since its inception, leading on a number of key national projects.

Both Faculties operate like Colleges in a microcosm and we are therefore tasked with activities across the whole range of College activities, including curricula, assessments, quality, e-Portfolio, e-Learning, recruitment, membership engagement, events (we run a number of events across both Faculties), examinations (each Faculty has its own examination), publications, consultations, communications, academia and more.  We work with our Deans, Board Members and Committee Members, our Fellows and Members, patient representatives, ICM and Pain Medicine trainees, Presidents and members of other Royal Colleges, the GMC and the Deaneries … to mention just a few.  All administrators have their own areas of responsibility and expertise as well as shared areas.  Everyone mucks in when required!

The Department is now seven strong:

  • Daniel Waeland (Head of Faculties) is responsible for budgets, strategy and projects.
  • Anna Ripley (Faculties Supervisor) is responsible of supervising the operational work of the team.
  • This role will be responsible for pain events, publications and standards in Pain Medicine.
  • Dawn Evans (FICM Co-ordinator) is responsible for ICM events, publications, standards and legal & ethical matters.
  • Susan Hall (FICM Co-ordinator) is responsible for careers, recruitment, workforce, quality and the FICM website.
  • Rohini Makwana (FICM Administrator) is responsible for ICM trainees, assessment and membership.
  • This role will be responsible for work relating to Pain Medicine training, education (e-learning, undergraduate and globally) and our membership.

The Role
This diverse role, supporting a number of key areas across the Faculties, offers you a fantastic opportunity to expand your experience as well as work in a professional and friendly environment.

The successful candidate will be an organised and confident individual with highly developed administrative skills, who will thrive on the challenge of balancing competing and changing priorities of a number of busy areas. The role is very varied and you will find yourself managing high level committees of the Faculty, running the FPM events, looking after all matters relating to professional standards as well as maintaining the FPM website.  You will need to possess outstanding communication skills to enable you to produce excellent minutes, as well as quickly develop effective working relationships with key stakeholders.

A keen eye for detail and accuracy will assist you in managing website content and high level reports.  Additionally, a methodical and conscientious approach to work is a must, as is flexibility and enthusiasm to contribute to the wider team aims.
