The Scottish Government is seeking applications from interested candidates for the role of Her Majesty’s Inspector of Anatomy for Scotland (HMIAS).
The Inspector’s official responsibilities are legally prescribed in Section 9 of the Anatomy Act 1984 as amended by the Human Tissue (Scotland) Act 2006. These are:
(a) to advise Scottish Ministers on the exercise of their functions under the Anatomy Act;
(b) to inspect premises seeking licences to teach anatomy;
(c) to examine applications for licences to teach anatomy and have possession of anatomical specimens;
(d) to inspect premises to ascertain if any offence has been or is being committed under section 11(1) or (2) or against regulations under section 8 of the 1984 Act.
The work of HMIAS requires a good knowledge of biomedical science and the nature of the post would require the Inspector to be largely self-sufficient, IT- literate, and able to write and produce his or her own reports. A knowledge or experience of administrative and regulatory systems and the relevant legislation would be desirable, but the relevant knowledge could be gained following appointment by an otherwise strong candidate.
The role involves around 15 to 20 working days per year, but the nature of the post means that the Inspector would need to be available to conduct inspections, attend meetings and memorial services, and respond to enquiries when required. The role does not lend itself to a fixed working pattern and flexibility is necessary.
The appointment will be for up to 3 years, with the possibility of re-appointment subject to effective performance and to satisfying the requirements of the person specification for the role at the time of re-appointment.
The level ofremuneration is negotiable and will be claimed on the basis of the hours worked.
Completed applications must be returned by 20 March 2018
How to Apply: Applicants should provide a CV and a covering letter/personal statement setting out how they meet the person specification and the other requirements of the post. Applications should be e-mailed to Katrina.McNeill@gov.scot
Further information: We intend to hold interviews in mid April 2018. For further information on the post or the recruitment process please contact Katrina McNeill on 0131 244 3097.
