Jane Durkin

Assistant Director, Corporate Social Responsibility
General Medical Council

North West Leadership Board

Jane Durkin is Assistant Director for Corporate Social Responsibility at the General Medical Council (GMC). Jane took this role in May 2020 to lead the GMC’s work to enhance its approach to responsible business.

Jane has been with the GMC since 2008 and was previously responsible for its registration functions. These include the GMC’s contact centre and teams handling more than 20,000 applications for registration each year. She was also responsible for the GMC’s examinations for overseas doctors seeking registration in the UK. The tests make sure doctors who qualify overseas have the right knowledge and skills to practise medicine in the UK. Exams consist of a knowledge test held in 13 countries around the world and a comprehensive skills test at the GMC’s specialist test centre in Manchester. 

Prior to joining the GMC, Jane was Assistant Information Commissioner at the Information Commissioner’s Office in Wilmslow.

Jane is delighted to be on Business in the Community’s North West Advisory Board. She is looking forward to progressing an ambitious agenda for the region and is enthusiastic about combining her passion for responsible business and the North West.

Race at Work Charter Signatories

RACE AT WORK CHARTER SIGNATORIES COMMIT TO:
  • Appoint an Executive Sponsor for race
    Executive Sponsors for Race provide visible leadership on race and ethnicity in their organisation and can drive key actions such as setting targets for ethnic minority representation, briefing recruitment agencies and supporting mentoring and sponsorship.
  • Capture ethnicity data and publicise progress
    Capturing ethnicity data is important for establishing a baseline and measuring progress. It is also a crucial step towards an organisation being able to report on ethnicity pay.
  • Commit at Board level to zero tolerance of harassment and bullying.
    The Race at Work Survey revealed that 25% of ethnic minority employees reported that they had witnessed or experienced racial harassment or bullying from managers. Commitment from the top is needed to achieve change.
  • Make it clear that supporting equality in the workplace is the responsibility of all leaders and managers.
    Actions can include ensuring that performance objectives for leaders and managers cover their responsibilities to support fairness for all staff.
  • Take action that supports ethnic minority career progression
    Actions can include embedding mentoring, reverse mentoring and sponsorship in their organisations.
