Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.

Are you a hard working individual with a positive approach to providing an excellent customer service? Can you make a difference? An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Plymouth office within Health Education England for a full time Education Programme Co-ordinator (in the GP team)  supporting the administration for junior doctors as they commence and during their training programmes.

We are responsible for the planning, development, education and training of our  junior doctors across the southwest  for over 4000 trainees.  Based in Plymouth we are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual who can demonstrate the key values of the NHS Constitution to provide a full and comprehensive front line administrative service within the team.

What will you be doing?

This is an interesting and varied role where you will work in a challenging, busy and rewarding environment, as part of a friendly and supportive team. You will be building relationships and networks with a wide range of people including NHS hospital Trusts, GP practices, junior doctors, consultants, and the Royal Medical Colleges.

As Education Programme Co-ordinator you will be responsible for assisting within a wide portfolio that includes the management of training programmes and rotations for junior doctors, educational supervisor approvals, quality, some course administration, national recruitment events and the annual assessment processes for trainee doctors.

Whether you are contacting trainee doctors, the General Medical Council, local NHS organisations on behalf of Health Education England or working with colleagues from other areas in England, your essential input will help make sure we carry on delivering our current high standards of excellent customer service. There will also be some travel to offsite meetings/recruitment events.

What do you need?

Using excellent communication skills, you will be confident liaising with colleagues at all levels and possess extensive IT skills with experience of Microsoft Office packages, with particular emphasis on Excel at an intermediate level, and a superior attention to detail.
