We are particularly looking to recruit someone with strong professional experience as a paramedic.

All our academic staff act as personal tutors to provide pastoral care to our students. The role requires listening, interpersonal and pastoral care skills to deal with sensitive issues concerning students, appreciate individual students’ needs and circumstances, and refer students as appropriate to the specialist services that can provide further help.

  • Up-to-date, sound knowledge of current developments in health, social care and the range of skills required to teach the subject

It is desirable to have post-graduate qualifications and an active research portfolio. If you have a Doctorate and can supervise at this level, you will have opportunities to develop as the university has an active programme for supporting early career researchers.
