We are looking to appoint a Head of Fitness to Practice. The post holder will be a senior member of a small but expanding team and will lead the organisation’s fitness to practice function.

We are a charity that advances the health of the public through the maintenance and regulation of professional standards and clinical practice and advances education in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. In doing so we safeguard the public, promote the highest standards of training and research and work to make psychotherapy accessible to all. We are an accredited voluntary regulator of the psychoanalytic psychotherapy profession via the Professional Standards Authority. We publish a Register of practitioners who are required to follow our ethical code and meet our fitness to practise standards.

Working three days a week and reporting to the Chief Executive (and working closely with a number of clinically led professional committees) we are seeking to appoint a highly capable individual with previous experience in a professional fitness to practice role. The successful candidate will need to be an excellent team player, be able to demonstrate excellent knowledge and understanding of fitness to practice frameworks, and be able to command the confidence of our member institutions and our individual registrants when carrying out this core role for the organisation.

A salary of £45,00 – £50,000 pro-rata per annum is offered, with 28 days holiday pro-rata, plus statutory holidays and 6% employer pension contribution. A number of our committees do meet in the evening so we are looking for someone able and willing to work flexibly with some evenings and the occasional Saturday – time off in lieu is always given and the office operates flexible working practice throughout the normal working week.

The post is London-based although some occasional travel (to visit our member organisations or to attend fitness to practice hearings) may be required. At present, our staff are all working remotely. This candidate pack contains the information you will need to make an application for the post.

Application is by CV and a supporting statement of no more than two sides outlining why you believe yourself to be suitable for the role. Please provide evidence of your achievements against the bullet points in the person specification and be sure to include your contact details. Please send your application to: jobs@bpc.org.uk

Closing date for applications Monday 07 September. Interviews of shortlisted candidates are planned to take place on Wednesday 23 September.

We oppose any discrimination of any kind. This includes, but is not limited to, any discrimination on the basis of age, race, gender, ethnic origin, religious belief or sexual orientation.
