The opportunity

The GDC recently opened a new office Birmingham and as part of this, needs a Regulatory Lawyer. The post-holder will support the GDC’s Fitness to Practice (FTP) function by working collaboratively with colleagues to provide timely, accurate, pragmatic and risk based legal advice in relation to regulatory and information matters.

You will be a practising solicitor or barrister who is ILEX qualified (or foreign qualified equivalent). You will have knowledge of professional regulation and/or the principles and procedures of criminal/civil litigation. You will have a proven track record of providing timely and robust evidence-based legal advice and/or operational decisions within a regulatory or similar environment.

Whilst not essential, you will ideally have a good knowledge of Regulation and the FTP legal framework. A good understanding of GDPR and Freedom of Information requests would also be desirable as these relate to FTP proceedings.

You will need to be able to demonstrate your ability to form good working relationships with both internal and external stakeholders. You will have strong legal analytical skills and judgement with the ability to analyse complex issues and conduct thorough, proportionate and substantiated risk assessments. You will also have the ability to draft clear and concise advice reflecting the current legal position.


To reward you for your hard work and commitment, we offer an attractive benefits package that includes a generous pension scheme, flexi-time and 25 days’ annual leave (pro rata) plus bank holidays.

How to apply:
