Opening Date:
18 Mar 2022
Closing Date:
28 Mar 2022
Salary Range:

We are seeking brilliant, friendly, ambitious and inspirational staff to join our Midwfery lecturing team. Successful candidates will join an established teaching team.

The role would include such activities as:

  • Preparing and delivering teaching and learning activity on various aspects of our Midwifery courses
  • Delivery of clinical skills, theory teaching, personal tutoring, and assessment.
  • Enhancement of the student experience and facilitating 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 course.

The successful applicant will have extensive experience and knowledge of working as a registered Midwife and will be very familiar with the requirements of the role. Effective teamwork and excellent communication skills are essential. Formal teaching experience in higher education is preferred but is not essential for the Lecturer (Grade 7) post.

The School of Health & Social Care’s ambition is 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 and undergraduate degree and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council is essential.

The positions will be based either at The Centre of Excellence in Healthcare Education, Blackheath Lane Campus, Stafford, or at the Centre of Excellence in Healthcare Education, Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, Shrewsbury, although travel between both sites will be expected. Travel to the University Stoke Campus will also be expected on occasions.

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