The General Dental Council (GDC) regulates 119,000 dental professionals, including over 45,000 dentists and 74,000 dental care professionals, who overwhelmingly provide excellent dental services across the four nations and share the GDC’s commitment to putting the patient’s interests first. Dental professionals play a vital role in the healthcare system, seeing millions of patients every year. The GDC has a crucial role in ensuring that the public are protected, that they have confidence in dental professionals, and that professional standards are maintained.

The Corporate Strategy 2023-2025 sets out the GDC’s ambitions for the immediate years ahead. Our role in public protection remains unchanged, and our plan will see us continue to modernise and drive improvements in how we operate. Our Council, the GDC's strategic body, is composed of 12 Members, six of whom are lay Members – from a variety of professional backgrounds - and six are registered dental professionals.

The GDC is now looking to appoint an independent member to the Remuneration and Nomination Committee (RemNom). RemNom is one of the GDC’s non-statutory Standing Committees. It is populated by both lay and registrant Council Members and supported by an Independent Member. The role of the RemNom is to help the Council in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities with respect to scrutinising and approving the proposed appointment, reward, and appraisal approach for the Chief Executive & Registrar, and other senior leaders, as well as succession planning for the Chief Executive & Registrar.

The successful candidate will bring senior-level experience in the People Services field, such as in Human Resources or Organisational Development. With a relevant professional qualification (e.g. CIPD), or equivalent professional experience and up to date professional skills, you will have knowledge and experience of the role of a non-executive member of a committee, and experience working with the public sector. All candidates must demonstrate a track record of contributing to collective decision-making processes, and the ability to operate effectively as a non-executive through open-minded strategic thinking and assimilating complex information to reach effective, fair and independent conclusions.

The GDC is committed to delivering equality, improving diversity and being inclusive in all our work as a healthcare regulator and an employer. As part of this commitment, we actively encourage candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds to apply for this role.

Saxton Bampfylde Ltd is acting as an employment agency advisor to the GDC on this appointment. For further information about the role, including details about how to apply, please visit www.saxbam.com/appointments using reference AZNM. Alternatively telephone +44 (0)20 7227 0880 (during office hours). Applications should be received by noon on Wednesday 1st May 2024.
