The Regulation Team

The regulation team is headed up by the Director of Fitness to Practise and plays a key role in ensuring the GOsC effectively discharges key regulatory functions as set out in the Osteopaths Act. The department handles all complaints about osteopaths and manages the GOsC’s fitness to practise processes. It also has a responsibility for investigating breaches of Section 32 (S32) of the Act that ensures only those on the GOsC Register can practise as an osteopath and use the title ‘osteopath’.

The role

The Regulation Officer reports to the Regulation Manager and is part of a team of seven. This is a pivotal role within the GOsC’s regulatory functions, and duties include:

  • communicating the Council’s regulatory function to internal and external enquirers
  • receiving and investigating complaints about osteopaths’ fitness to practise
  • applying protection of title (S32) procedures in cases where it is alleged that an individual is in breach of this law
  • providing support to the regulation team.

To succeed in this role, you will need to have excellent written and verbal communication skills along with a commitment to continuous improvement.

We are a small regulator with 26 staff, so no day is the same, and applicants will need to show they are flexible and keen to support and help others in all aspects of our work. They will also need to be prepared to occasionally work outside office hours.
