The support and experience of our dedicated and highly focused teams is invaluable. This is your chance to build on your own skills and experience and make a worthwhile contribution to our work.

The GDC employs approximately 350 employees across London and Birmingham. We also engage the services of over 500 associates and panellists who sit on our statutory committees, hearings and fitness to practise panels.

About the role:

We are looking for a People Coordinator to provide effective, customer focused coordination of administration and systems for all stages of the workforce lifecycle (employees and associates).

You will be highly organised and comfortable with multi-tasking and prioritising in order to manage a busy workload and meet competing deadlines.
