The second Examinations Operations Officer will work on the MRCEM OSCE question bank, including the entry of new scenarios and revision of existing content, whilst organising and facilitating station-writing and examination setting meetings as required, following up on any actions agreed.

Both roles are extremely important within the Examinations Team and will require the use of bespoke examination software to organise and deliver the MRCEM OSCE adhering to the GMC approved assessment blueprint.  Both roles will also provide information to Subcommittees including the identification of examination stations requiring review.

Educated to a good standard, you will have excellent organisational, communication and interpersonal skills, along with experience of administering complex processes and the ability to analyse and synthesise complex data.

With experience of communicating with people at different levels, you should be a team player and have evidence of collaborative working. You should also have the ability to work methodically and accurately when under pressure.

Extensive experience of Microsoft Office and the ability to learn new software packages are essential.

Although based in London, travel throughout the UK and overseas might be required, including overnight stays, to facilitate the development and delivery of the College’s examinations programme. This may include out of core hours work. The College is working to a hybrid working model and offers flexibility in working patterns dependant on operational needs.
