The General Dental Council
Clinical Case Examiners – 3 days per week
London (home based working will be considered)
We are seeking to appoint a number of Dentists and Dental Care Professionals to join the GDC as Case Examiners and a key part of our Fitness to Practise Directorate. Working with GDC colleagues and lawyers, you will review and analyse cases at the investigation stage, deciding on the most appropriate course of action and making decisions which are balanced and compliant with GDC’s Fitness to Practise rules.
You will be an outstanding communicator, both written and oral, and will enjoy working as part of a team to make reasoned, and sometimes very challenging, decisions. You will have the clear ability to analyse, assess and make decisions on complex and voluminous information and evidence. You will work efficiently and manage a large and varied workload, bringing high levels of accuracy and attention to detail. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about the contribution we make to improving healthcare services; who understand the far-reaching impact of our work, and who approach all of their work with integrity and objectivity.
The GDC is the regulator of professional standards in dentistry in the UK. We are a statutory corporation, independent of both the dental profession and of Government, although we work closely with both. Our job is to ensure that dental care is delivered only by suitably qualified professionals with current expertise who understand and take seriously their obligations to patients. We regulate across the whole dental team – dentists, hygienists, nurses, orthodontists and technicians.
The GDC wants to attract applications from diverse, talented individuals. We believe that a diverse workforce, where people feel empowered to contribute effectively, enables robust decision making and a better quality of service.
To find out more about this role and to apply, please visit or speak to our retained consultants at GatenbySanderson, Alastair Christie or Katrina Paget on 020 7426 3994.
Closing date: 12noon Friday 8 April 2016. Final Interviews: w/c 2nd and w/c 9th May
