The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine (FPM) is seeking applications from enthusiastic and motivated candidates to the post of Policy Coordinator, helping to manage our varied and exciting policy and communications activities. FPM is the membership body for doctors working in the specialty of Pharmaceutical Medicine – healthcare professionals vital to the development of safe and effective medicines and medical devices.
The post-holder will primarily work with the FPM Policy and Communications Committee and Expert Groups. The groups span the breadth of pharmaceutical medicine, from pharmacology to the marketing and regulation of medicines, across oncology, gene therapies, medical devices and digital health and many other areas. The group members apply their expert knowledge across these areas to respond to the external policy environment and to contribute to the development of FPM policy.
The main responsibilities for the post-holder include: organising meetings and taking and distributing notes and actions; liaising with group members to make progress with the activities of the groups; and collating and editing feedback and responses to prepare policy outputs. Another aspect of the role will be working with the FPM Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Forum, enabling the postholder to develop an understanding of these issues and how they affect the development of medicines.
The post-holder will need an eye for detail, a professional and friendly manner, be able to work flexibly and resourcefully, and have a hunger to learn and to broaden and strengthen their administrative, writing and policy development skills.
