The University of Roehampton is seeking an experienced nursing academic to lead the strategic development of practice learning for our newly developed nursing programmes. This is an incredible opportunity for someone to join our growing Nursing team within the School of Life and Health Sciences and to build on our early successes.

We are seeking highly motivated candidates with excellent leadership skills and an in-depth knowledge of NMC professional standards and practice learning. You will work with the Director of Nurse Education and nursing management team to deliver outstanding education and an excellent student experience.

At Roehampton, we change lives by helping our students to develop the confidence, knowledge and adaptability they need for a successful graduate career and fulfilling life.

We are a supportive, close-knit and inclusive community, with a proud history in higher education stretching back more than 175 years. Our values come from this rich history, built on community, engagement and partnership, with a belief that no matter their background, we can help our students realise their ambitions.  Our graduates today have excellent employment prospects, and are part of a thriving global community of Roehampton alumni.

We provide an engaging portfolio of courses across the creative arts, social sciences, law, humanities, literature, education, business, and human and life sciences, including nursing. We also have an excellent research profile. With international reach, our research informs policy, enriches culture and improves people’s lives.

We are based on a beautiful 64-acre parkland campus, located in the heart of south-west London. Our staff have access to excellent facilities and a generous range of staff benefits.

The University supports the NHS Track and Trace system and your Roehampton point of contact will keep a temporary record of all visitors for 21 days to assist NHS Test and Trace with requests for data.

The safety of staff, students and the wider community is our priority and work will continue across the University to ensure we always meet the safety standards set by the government.
