The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) is committed to recruiting a diverse range of people who will provide a professional service and help us meet our key objectives.

We are proud of our reputation for expertise and quality of service, and we recognise that this is built upon the commitment, loyalty, skills and hard work of our employees.

We are now recruiting for a Regulation Manager and Education visitors/Registration assessors.

Regulation Manager

We are now recruiting a Regulation Manager to join our Regulation team.

The Regulation Department is responsible for ensuring the GOsC effectively discharges our key regulatory functions as set out in the Osteopaths Act 1993. The department handles all complaints about osteopaths and manages the GOsC’s fitness to practise processes. It also has responsibility for investigating breaches of s32 of the Act which ensures that only those on the GOsC Register can practise as osteopaths and use the title of osteopath.

The Regulation Manager reports to the Head of Regulation and is responsible for line management of five members of staff. This is a pivotal role, managing the GOsC’s regulatory functions, including operational management of the fitness to practise processes, fitness to practise casework and criminal prosecutions. The role requires experience of investigations and complaint progression, together with recent experience of successfully managing a team. To succeed in this role, you will need to be an effective communicator and will be required to liaise with external stakeholders in relation to the GOsC’s regulatory functions.

Education visitor/Registration assessor vacancies

Do you have a broad range of experience in osteopathy, including in undergraduate education? Are you a strong communicator and team player? If so, you could play a vital role maintaining standards in osteopathic education and the profession.

  • assess applicants to the Register who practise outside the UK, and osteopaths who have been away from the Register or non-practising for some time.

Further information and how to apply

You can find more information about these essential roles (including details of remuneration and expenses), plus details of how to apply, on the Appointment of reviewers page of the QAA website.
