Job vacancies

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists ensures that the highest achievable standards of eye care are delivered for patients through excellence in the training, education and assessment of eye doctors and their continuing professional development.

The College currently employs 32 staff at our Euston, London office. Colleagues work in department teams and with members, committees and groups that support the work and activities of the College.

We moved to a new refurbished and contemporary office space in December 2015 with good transport links. The office is a relaxed but hard-working environment and new staff feel at home within a few short weeks.
