Dear Candidate,

I am delighted that you have expressed an interest in applying to be the Head of Resources and Assurance at the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). The GOsC is seeking someone who can show the skills, expertise and foresight to lead on finance, IT, facilities and risk and to continuously improve their infrastructure. To achieve this continuous improvement, we are looking for someone who will bring new energy and ideas and who will add value to our work.

The Head of Resources and Assurance will report to me and will have two direct reports who are the IT Manager and Facilities Manager.

This is a critical role and to succeed, you will need to be able to think strategically and to translate high level finance and risk management speak into practical business plans and solutions. You will need to be able to easily move between the strategic and operational detail. You will also need excellent communication skills (both verbally and written) and a proven ability to forge credible relationships with non-executives; staff and stakeholders.

This is a wide-ranging and exciting position within a progressive and highly respected regulator. As a small regulator with circa 26 staff, no day is the same and applicants will need to demonstrate they are flexible and eager to support and help others in all aspects of our work. Collaboration and partnership working is central to how we work.

If this is an opportunity that appeals to you, and you have the skills set out in the job description and key responsibilities section in this candidate brief - we would very much like to hear from you. 

For a confidential conversation with Thewlis Graham Associates who are managing the process, please contact Sarah Thewlis, Managing Director on 0207 850 4781 or email applications@thewlisgraham.com.  Sarah will be happy to discuss this opportunity with you and answer any questions you may have.

Yours faithfully

Matthew Redford

Chief Executive and Registrar
