We are a committed equal opportunities employer and we particularly encourage applications from men to reflect our diverse student cohort and staff under-representation where it exists. We also welcome applicants who wish to work part-time.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the School as a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing. You will join a large and friendly academic team which has a long-standing, successful track record in delivering nurse and nursing associate education at all levels of study.

The role requires a motivated, committed and student-focused individual who is keen to play a key role in the provision of high-quality, evidence-informed nursing and nursing associate education..

Main Duties & Responsibilities

To contribute to the development, delivery and evaluation of learning and teaching activity in Adult Nursing, mainly Pre-registration Nursing (BSc & MSc-including apprenticeship) and the Nursing Associate Degree Apprenticeship programme with the possibility of contributing to short courses and CPPD programmes. At Senior Lecturer level you would be expected to take on Module Leadership.

You will use effective learning techniques to engage and support students, including supporting recruitment and assessment as required. Research, publications and presenting are important elements of the role. We embody a collaborative and compassionate ethos and you will contribute to that, also building effective working relationships with local partners and external agencies.

It’s key to have knowledge of current NMC requirements and standards of proficiency, and for the Senior Lecturer also evidence of evidence-informed teaching practice. A record or evidence of publications would be desirable. You will be able to demonstrate evidence of teamworking and working autonomously as well as having excellent written and verbal communication skills.
