About the role
We are seeking brilliant, friendly, ambitious and inspirational paramedics to join our Paramedic Science lecturing team. Successful candidates would join an established teaching team based at our Centre of Excellence in Healthcare Education in Stafford.
The role would include such activities as:
- Preparing and delivering teaching and learning activity on various aspects of our paramedic sciences courses.

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