Three new exciting leadership roles

Action on climate change is one of our key priorities, and the Officer for Climate Change will lead on our activities in collaboration with a dynamic working group.

To support the paediatric workforce, including alternative career pathways and the integration of wider medical roles, we're seeking an Assistant Officer for Careers.

And, the Assistant Officer for Child Protection will volunteer with the standing committee to help prevent violence, exploitation and abuse against children.

The Trainee Research Network provides peer support and guidance for any trainee doing child health research, and is seeking reps from across the country. And, the Trainees Committee has a vacancy in East Midlands.
