Project Officer, part-time - 21-28 hours per week
London Higher is an ‘umbrella’ body representing over 40 publicly funded universities and higher education institutions in London. The organisation currently has four core divisions, each with its own stream of research and advocacy activities, along with several discrete projects. Our outputs are diverse and include research reports, promotional material, meetings and workshops, parliamentary lobbying, media management and receptions. We also run a wide range of advisory groups and networks.
London Medicine & Healthcare is one of the four divisions currently run by London Higher. It is comprised of two advisory groups spanning the medical and healthcare higher education sector.
London Medicine is the group bringing together the Heads of schools of medicine, dentistry and associated clinical academic disciplines in London, together with senior health education stakeholders. The Healthcare Education Group is a forum bringing together senior representatives from those higher education institutions (HEIs) in London that teach, train or conduct research in the healthcare professions. This includes nursing, midwifery and the allied health professions. Their remit is to monitor, research, promote and advocate education and training on behalf of this internationally respected cluster of HEIs and disciplines.
