Accreditation is a professionally-led supportive process involving self-assessment and external peer assessment to assess the quality of clinical services in relation to established standards and to promote continuous quality improvement. The SEQOHS accreditation scheme – Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health Service – is designed to raise the overall standard of care provided by occupational health services through assessment, accreditation and annual monitoring.

As accreditation manager you will oversee the accreditation process from start-to-finish and manage a small office team working with a wider team of assessors. You will need to be an excellent project manager in order to deliver new developments. You will manage the budget and you will recruit and liaise with assessors and communicate with all stakeholders. You will work with national leads in occupational health and ensure that good governance is in place for the scheme through the SEQOHS Steering Group.

You will need outstanding organisational skills and the ability to liaise and communicate confidently with a range of people. Experience of planning and working to deadlines, using initiative and working flexibly as a member of a busy team are also essential qualities.

Informal enquiries are encouraged. Please contact Caroline Rogers at Caroline.Rogers@rcplondon.ac.uk to discuss this exciting opportunity.
