We're looking for a chair and vice-chair to help us better support our SRH workforce. Could this be you?

We appreciate many healthcare professionals won’t be in a position to volunteer their time during this current period, but if you are able to, we are looking to fill this vacancy. 

We’ve been working hard to restructure our FSRH governance for training, development and education to better support our members and SRH workforce. As part of this, we're introducing a new 'Workforce Development and Support Committee' (WDSC).

This new committee will oversee the development and support of products and projects which fall outside our specialist training programme and our General Training products. Examples of work which will be governed by this committee include CESR (Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration), SAS doctor support, mentoring, advanced nurse development (ACP Project), revalidation and job description approval and challenges.

We are seeking a Chair and a Vice-Chair for this committee who are enthusiastic and keen to develop support for our workforce.

Why apply?

You’ll be able to:

  • Make a valuable contribution to supporting SRH workforce development
  • Work closely with leading experts in SRH
  • Be formally acknowledged for your contribution
  • Use these experiences to support your CPD
  • Develop your medical education expertise

The committee will meet three times a year (technology can be used to enable this) and the Chair (or Vice Chair) will report to the Education Strategy Board (ESB), which also meets three times a year. Attendance at ESB would ideally be in person, dependent on how the COVID-19 situation evolves. 

Please note, this role is not remunerated, but travel expenses will be covered by the FSRH.

Please share a brief CV and cover letter to jlawton@fsrh.org. The closing date is 23.59 Friday 29 May 2020.
