The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is the independent regulator for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises in Great Britain. It is our job to protect, promote and maintain the health, safety and wellbeing of members of the public by upholding standards and public trust in pharmacy.

Three independent statutory committees make decisions on concerns about registrants and pharmacy premises. The Appointments Committee is accountable to the GPhC but operates independently to recruit members of the statutory committees, to oversee procedures for their training, development and performance review and, where appropriate, to suspend or remove them.

As Deputy Chair of the Appointments Committee you will take part in the work of the Committee, support the Chair in providing guidance and assistance to the Committee to ensure the recruitment process is conducted fairly, and act as Chair in the Chair’s absence.

You will have significant experience of conducting competence based selection processes and interviews, and experience of chairing meetings and interview panels, of evaluating evidence and making objective decisions, and of identifying and delivering feedback. You will be a strong team player and communicator. Importantly, you will have a commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, and to the Nolan Principles of Public Life.

We are proud of being an employer that values the diversity of its workforce and we encourage applicants from all backgrounds and sections of the community to apply.
