Northern and Yorkshire Executive vacancies

We are looking to appoint enthusiastic and experienced Consultants and SAS Doctors to join the Northern and Yorkshire Division Executive Committees.

We are looking for Regional Representatives in the following specialties:

  • Academic: Division-wide
  • Child and Adolescent: North East region
  • Intellectual Disability: North East region
  • Old age (shared role): Division-wide

Regional Specialty Representatives are appointed locally to support Regional Advisors and Deputy Regional Advisors, by providing expert advice on their psychiatric sub-specialty.

They are the main link between the Faculty and Division Executive and although attendance at Division Executive Committee meetings is not a mandatory requirement for this role, attendance at the Regional Advisor meetings is considered a necessary part of the role (meetings take place yearly) and regular contact with the Regional Advisor, Deputy Regional Advisor and the Division Office is essential.

The recommended term is 5 years though this can vary depending circumstances. The roles can also be taken up as a shared role with another colleague, or alongside any other existing College role.
