About the role

  • We are seeking ambitious and inspirational nurses to join our Adult Nursing lecturing team.
  • As part of our inspiring teaching team, your role would include activities such as:
  • Preparing and delivering teaching and learning activities covering various aspects of our pre and post registration nursing courses. Whilst primarily this teaching will focus on nursing students from your specific field, the role would also include teaching to other specialities and apprenticeship courses relating to nursing.
  • Delivering clinical skills teaching using our state-of-the-art simulation facilities, classroom teaching, academic mentoring, marking and assessment
  • Enhancement of the student experience and contributing to ongoing course evaluation and development
  • Engaging with, and developing, innovative and effective teaching methods to enhance student engagement and achievement
  • Contributing to student recruitment and ongoing promotion of the courses delivered by the School.
  • We can offer contracts of employment to suit you, including part-time, full time, permanent and secondment opportunities. We also have a remote working policy, which gives staff the flexibility to work remotely for part of the week.

Successful applicants will have varied experience and knowledge of working as an NMC registered nurse. Effective teamworking and excellent communication skills are essential. Formal teaching experience in higher education is preferred but is not essential for the Lecturer (Grade 7) post. However, these are considered as essential requirements for the Senior Lecturer role.

The School of Health, Science and Wellbeing is committed to ensure that we develop the safest practitioners in the sector. To this end, patient safety and simulation-based education is a key strand of our work, and we would particularly welcome applicants with a passion for patient safety and simulation.

Applicants must hold a relevant professional qualification, an undergraduate degree and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

We are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – a place where everyone can be themselves and succeed on merit.
