About the Company

About the Team

Our Group Risk and Compliance function is currently undergoing an exciting transition having recently been joined by Chief Risk Officer, Mark Chaplin. Mark’s vision is to create an established and mature function that drives a greater appreciation and understanding of risk, to ultimately ensure our Members are treated fairly and to build confidence in our financial sustainability.

Our GRC colleagues will be building upon their previous successes throughout 2024 and beyond to drive a culture of accountability of risk throughout MPS.


How our Group Risk and Compliance Team Work

We offer a truly-flexible hybrid working arrangement that is centred around our colleagues’ work-life balance and coming on-site with purpose. Technology allows us to collaborate effectively regardless of location, but we know sometimes you can’t beat being with your team in-person.

Our GRC team tend to come on-site once or twice a week. However, this can fluctuate either way throughout the year depending on our projects, stakeholders and business needs.


Who We Are

Medical Protection Society (MPS) is the world’s leading protection organisation for Doctors, Dentists and healthcare professionals. We protect and support the professional interests of almost 300,000 Members around the world.

We are a not-for-profit organisation, meaning our Members’ subscriptions are retained for the benefit of our Members who require support for complaints or claims arising from professional practice, or invested into bettering the organisation and our products.

Our philosophy is to support safe practice in medicine and dentistry by helping to avert problems in the first place. We also actively campaign for regulatory and legal reforms that benefit Members and the wider healthcare professions.

To do this, we need colleagues who are trusted and supported to deliver their best work, whether that be through leadership development, fully-funded training courses or peer-to-peer support. We want our colleagues to feel empowered enough to deliver positive change, display ambition to push themselves and are determined when faced with a challenge, whilst ensuring our Member’s best interests are at the core.
