Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
Administrative/Education Assistant
Full-time (35 hours per week), permanent post.
Salary £20080 (pending cost of living incr)
Queen Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1JQ.

With a worldwide reputation for educational excellence the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh exists to promote the highest standards of patient care. One of the ways we do this is by our programme of education to support trained doctors and doctors in training who are pursuing a career in specialist internal medicine. A vacancy has arisen for an Administrative/Education Assistant to join the RCPE Education team.

We are looking for a polite, helpful and efficient assistant, who enjoys providing a high standard of customer service and who ‘goes the extra mile’ to exceed internal and external customer expectations. Along with other Education Assistants, the successful candidate will be responsible for looking after delegates attending RCPE Education events and for providing a range of support services to assist the College’s Education Co-ordinators in the smooth running of events. This support will primarily focus on facilitating audience participation in events (using ‘slido’). This varied role also provides support for a number of departmental committees and project working groups.

The College is looking for an enthusiastic candidate: a self-starter with a positive attitude.  Excellent communication skills are required together with meticulous attention to detail and the ability to store and recall data accurately.  Along with excellent IT skills, the successful candidate will demonstrate substantial general administrative experience, including work both within a team and independently.

This is a full-time, permanent post.  Hours of work are 35 per week, normally 9 am until 5pm with an hour for lunch, Monday to Friday inclusive but some early starts (7.30 or 8am) will be required on event days and later evenings (to 6 or 6.30pm) may occasionally be required.  A system of TOIL is in place to accommodate this.

Informal enquiries about this post may be made to Kate Hollier by telephone on 0131 2473607 or email .

The closing date for this post is 9am on Thursday 16 May 2019. Interviews are likely to be held in the afternoon of Wednesday 22 May.
