Canterbury Christ Church University is modern and dynamic. It aims to transform lives through outstanding higher education and to enrich the communities it serves. With some 15,000 students across two major campuses, staff champion the University’s commitment to diversity and value the warm, friendly working environment. Development and support of staff is a priority.

The University now seeks a new Head of the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work.

You will be an experienced academic in your own right with potentially a significant professional background too. You will certainly be no stranger to the complexities of contemporary health and care environments and higher education.

We encourage applications from people of minority ethnic origin, all faiths and none, and people with disabilities.
