The School of Health and Society is a forward-thinking, dynamic school with a commitment to lifelong learning and real world impact. We are one of the largest educators of nurses, midwives and allied health and social care professionals in the North West, known for our track record of collaborating with a wide range of industry partners across health and social care to produce highly skilled graduates, with real work experience. Salford has a rich history and an exciting future; we sit at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse, and actively engage with stakeholders across the region to address the identified health outcomes linked to the devolution of power to Greater Manchester’s local authorities. We have always been committed to addressing the needs and aspirations of our local community. Our focus is not just local – we’re actively driving forward our international reach. We have an excellent reputation and actively recruit international students to our MSc and PhD programmes.

Occupational Therapy has a highly regarded undergraduate qualifying programme and is in the first year of delivery of a MSc pre-registration qualifying route which has proven to be very popular. We are looking for a motivated, creative and ambitious leader to take Occupational Therapy at Salford forward, building on our strengths and developing new areas of business to meet the demands of a changing world.
