Current vacancies

We are currently recruiting for the following:

Investigating Committee members
We are looking for five new members to join our Investigating Committee: three osteopaths and two non-osteopaths (lay positions). This is an opportunity to become part of a fair decision-making process for a modern, inclusive and innovative healthcare regulator.

The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) considers diversity to be a strength. We wish to encourage applications from widest possible field of candidates to help us reflect our diverse society.

If you are passionate about a sense of fairness and independence, you can grasp and weigh evidence in the balance, you understand the importance of protecting the public and can also appreciate the vital role that osteopaths play in healthcare, then this may be a role for you.

The Investigating Committee (IC) considers all concerns raised against osteopaths received by the GOsC. IC panels make an initial determination about whether there is a ‘case to answer’ and if the matter should be referred to the Professional Conduct Committee for hearing. The IC also has powers of interim suspension in relation to osteopaths.

You will be expected to commit no more than 15 days a year depending on caseload, plus some extra time for mandatory training, reading and annual reviews. The daily attendance fee is £330. We pay reasonable travel and subsistence expenses. Appointment starts on 1 April 2025 (initially for up to four years).

If this would be your first non-executive role or your first role in the regulation sector, we welcome your application and you might be interested in registering for our 1-hour recruitment webinar Q&A on 16 July at 6pm. Find out more and sign up.

Closing date: 11:30am on Wednesday 31 July 2024

In-person interviews: Tuesday 11 February 2025 and Wednesday 12 February 2025
