Welcome from the Chief Executive

Dear Candidate,

2019 is the 90th year since the founding of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), our focus on championing girls’ and women’s healthcare around the world has never been more important.

Recent economic and political change, as well as ever-increasing demands on healthcare, have driven a need for transformational change across health and social care. It is essential that issues around the quality and safety of women’s healthcare remain at the forefront and rise even higher up the external agenda.

With input from great people along our journey, we have achieved so much since our inception in 1929, from significantly raising standards of practice in obstetrics and gynaecology, to successfully championing national and international healthcare policy issues such as abortion reform in the Republic of Ireland.

As the RCOG looks ahead to the decades to come, we have a far-reaching and ambitious vision to drive major improvements in health and healthcare across the female life-cycle, through the reproductive and childbearing era to the post-reproductive care. In order to achieve these ambitious aims we know we need to recruit the right people with the right skills and values to join us.

Working at the RCOG means you will be joining a talented and committed team working in partnership with over 16,000 members around the world to translate our vision into reality over the months and years to come.

The College provides excellent opportunities for growth and development and the knowledge that you are making a real difference to women and women’s health. This is an incredible organisation and I do hope you will consider joining us for this exciting next chapter in our evolution, shaping the future of a thriving institution at such a significant time.

With very best wishes,

Kate Lancaster

CEO - Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
