A bit about the School of Health & Society…

Our School of Health & Society is one of the largest providers of nursing, midwifery and allied health professional education programmes in the UK, 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. We are at an interesting time in the Higher Education sector, there is significant change in terms of oversight, student expectations and changing demographics and we are trying to do things differently so that we stay ahead of these changes. Our connection to industry is stronger than ever and we’re proud to have more partnerships with SMEs than any other Greater Manchester University. It’s everything we do and the way we do everything.

In the School of Health & Society we are looking for an exceptional colleague to join our creative, committed and passionate academics in the Mental Health Nursing Team.

We are a passionate team of academics who have worked, and continue to work, collaboratively with people whose mental and physical health has required the thoughtful, skilled care of another. We endeavour to bring these transferable skills into our team through a values-based, relational approach to working together and in supporting our students across their career trajectory.

We are one of the largest educators of nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in the North West. We are proud of our proven track record of collaborating with our health and social care partners to enable highly skilled practitioners who can respond to the challenges of contemporary practice.

We welcome the opportunity to speak to registered mental health nurses with a passion for supporting their own and others’ learning and development. If you can demonstrate your commitment to a values-based approach to education which aims to support excellence in Mental Health Nurses as they respond to the challenges of contemporary practice across their career trajectory, then please consider getting in touch.

Interviews will take place on Monday 11 July. If you feel you have the attributes required to join us as a valued colleague and wish to discuss this opportunity further, please contact the Head of Mental Nursing, Seán Welsh s.welsh@salford.ac.uk

You can also engage with our team twitter @UoS_MHNurs to gain a further sense of the issues we are passionate about and are very welcome to arrange to visit and meet members of the team using the contact details above.
