Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health

£40,000 pa plus excellent benefits

London WC1 and home-based

35 hours per week

The Lead Psychometrician is a crucial role at the College as you play a critical role in successfully designing, developing, implementing and delivering processes and procedures associated with creating, validating and maintaining new and existing examination and assessment tools.

As Lead Psychometrician, you will guide and advise the Psychometric Team in all aspects of output and analysis, leading them in working collaboratively with members of the RCPCH to develop and analyse assessment tools. You will be joining a very busy team and whilst it has a broad range of operational and development tasks, you will have a large degree of autonomy and the opportunity to improve processes, as well as developing both personally and professionally.

Reporting to the Head of Theory & Standards, you will identify areas for change and development within examination and assessment processes and evaluate and develop new and existing software to maximise efficiency and the quality assurance of E&T related processes.

Degree qualified and with further relevant professional experience and an in-depth knowledge of statistical analysis, you will have an understanding of techniques and theories used in undertaking advanced psychometric analysis.

With strong analytical and problem-solving skills along with the ability to interact with key stakeholders from clinical paediatrics settings, you will have done some management training and are ready to implement your learning, or have experience of line management from which you can demonstrate reflection.

This is an exciting and influential role with budget responsibility and would suit someone who enjoys variety and has the potential or experience to manage a team, with a keen interest in standard setting and quality assurance.

Knowledge or an interest in medical education and familiarity with its terminology and an understanding of EDI issues and best practices would be desirable.

The Theory & Standards team oversee standards in paediatric education and training by quality assuring our examinations and assessments. The psychometric sub-team undertakes standard setting and analysis for the exams and assessments, as well as carrying out and publishing wide-ranging research supporting the work of the Education and Training division.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.

The RCPCH has more than 20,000 members and fellows and employs around 170 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We have smaller offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The RCPCH wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. However, the College is particularly keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and/or candidates with a disability who are currently under-represented at this level of the organisation.

The College operates a flexible and modern working policy, whereby our colleagues work in the office for a minimum of 40% of the week and the remainder from home.
