Clinical lead and working group member: The Lady Estelle Wolfson Emerging Leaders Fellowship
The Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS England) wishes to recruit a clinical lead, working group and advisors for the redevelopment of The Lady Estelle Wolfson Emerging Leaders Fellowship. The programme aims to give women in surgery the confidence and tools they need to apply for, and secure, leadership roles within the College and more widely.
The programme will offer a series of learning events while enabling participants (fellows) to benefit from observing leaders in their roles. The fellows will also have the support of a mentor or ‘buddy’ and opportunities for developing a support network.
We are seeking a clinical lead, working group members plus those willing and able to contribute to the development and delivery of this exciting programme.
We welcome faculty from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. We are keen to build a community of faculty who can act as role models to course participants and represent the diversity of people who work in surgery.
Most roles within the learning department are voluntary and we are grateful to our faculty members who donate their time to support excellence in surgical education. This practice applies to the working group and advisors.
The College does however recognise that clinical leads are committing more time and has developed a model whereby it contributes towards remuneration directly to their employing trust. See the remuneration details within the job description below.
Informal advice may be sought from the Learning and Development Lead, Liz Brookfield.
