The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic Practice is offering an exciting opportunity for a suitably experienced and qualified professional to join our team of Midwifery Lecturers providing high quality education to both pre–registration students and post–registration health care professionals. This opportunity is offered as a one year fixed term appointment or as a secondment.

As a Lecturer in Midwifery you will join an experienced and motivated team of academics, providing support for teaching and learning across the School’s portfolio with focus on midwifery course. You will be a committed and motivated professional who will therefore contribute effectively to the planning, delivery and evaluation of learning materials/modules across our programmes.

With knowledge, experience and skills as well as a degree in a relevant subject, you will also be expected to contribute to the wider School portfolio which includes undergraduate and postgraduate Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic education. As well as this, our Lecturers develop and use a range of skills to support students as a personal tutor as well as engaging in partnership with other academics, practice provider partners and people and communities

The School is housed in a state of the art building designed to simulate both clinical and community settings providing a stimulating learning environment.

Our vision is to provide dynamic and transformational learning, teaching and research that makes a leading contribution to improving the health and well-being of local, national and global communities. We aim to engage with key partners to develop, deliver and disseminate high quality research that is of value to society, those using health and social care services, and the professions of nursing and midwifery.

This is a full-time position but we will consider different and flexible contract types, such as part-time working. Whilst we are focussed on educating the next generation of Nurses, Midwives and Paramedics, we also appreciate the need to retain skills in the health profession, so we may consider part and full time secondments from your current role.
