This is an exciting opportunity for a registered midwife to join the Department of Allied Health Professions, Sport and Exercise. We are seeking ambitious, and experienced graduate midwives to join a friendly and motivated team in education and research within the School of Human and Health Sciences. We are looking to recruit two lecturers / senior lecturers in midwifery to join our team.

We offer traditional degree and apprenticeship degree routes leading to a midwifery qualification, and postgraduate provision includes the newborn and infant physical examination (NIPE) programme.

The University of Huddersfield is a thriving University with a modern campus offering fantastic facilities for work and leisure. We have a diverse student body and professional partnerships with NHS and healthcare partners.

You will be involved in the development and delivery of undergraduate, postgraduate midwifery and health-related programmes.

You will also provide support to learners, practice supervisors and practice assessors within clinical practice areas.

Commitment to facilitating student-centred learning and innovative approaches to midwifery education are essential. You should have knowledge of a broad range of contemporary midwifery practice and research. You should possess appropriate professional qualifications and be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and have relevant post-registration experience as a midwife. Completion of the newborn and infant physical examination programme is desirable.
