We are excited to be partnering with RolePlayNorth. This service with Newcastle University provides simulated patients for all medical and dental school assessments and is involved in a wide variety of exams as well as a number of courses and workshops.
RolePlayNorth provides Newcastle University with a supply of medical role players to help with communication skills across the region.
Our partnership will see us recruit Black, Asian and other minority ethnic role-players to join a database that includes people from all walks of life. Teakisi’s role will enhance diversity when attracting new people to RolePlayNorth.
All students need to see an appropriate range of diverse simulated patients throughout their medical and pharmaceutical studies. At Teakisi, we believe we are best placed to bring this to Newcastle University.
Some role-players have a performance/drama background but this is by no means essential. Some are ex-professionals, but our recruitment process is not at all exclusive and we would urge people from all minoritised communities to apply.
What is the time commitment required?
Some of role-players choose to work only a couple of days a year and others decide to work throughout the year. There is training available to those who wish to become more involved.
How much is the pay?
Starting pay – £14 per hour
I'm interested! What happens next?
Applicants will be invited to interview and if successful will be offered Newcastle University contingent worker contracts and will be invited to take part in further training sessions or shadowing as appropriate.
As the work is across the region, own car is beneficial but not essential.
