A bit about the School of Health & Society…

Our School of Health & Society is one of the largest providers of nursing, midwifery, and allied health professional education programmes in the UK, known for our track record of collaborating with a wide range of industry partners across health and social care to produce highly skilled graduates with real work experience. We are at an interesting time in the Higher Education sector, there is significant change in terms of oversight, student expectations and changing demographics and we are trying to do things differently so that we stay ahead of these changes. Our connection to industry is stronger than ever and we’re proud to have more partnerships with SMEs than any other Greater Manchester University. It’s everything we do and the way we do everything.

So what will the role involve?

  • You will have the opportunity to contribute to the organisation and delivery of mental health nursing clinical skills learning and teaching, including clinical simulation across our portfolio of pre-registration nursing and healthcare programmes, including our very popular undergraduate and post-graduate pre-registration mental health nursing programmes.
  • You will have the opportunity to contribute to students’ learning and development as a personal tutor to a group of pre-registration mental health nursing students; this is an aspect which our students have identified as incredibly important in their learning experience.
  • You will have the opportunity to take a lead in your own area of expertise and develop new ideas to meet the needs of the modern world.
  • You will have the opportunity to contribute to our thinking and be challenging on how the University of Salford can transform the way it addresses equity disparities, embraces diversity and becomes more inclusive.
  • You will have the opportunity to join and foster the development of an inclusive community, using teaching approaches which encourage inclusivity, working in partnership with students to improve their sense of belonging, diversifying the curriculum and using approaches to inclusive assessment to close the award gap.

To be considered for this position you must have current registration as a mental health nurse with the Nursing & Midwifery Council, possess a degree in a health-related subject, and have experience as a registered nurse in a clinical setting.

If you are interested in this position, you are very welcome to contact Seán Welsh, Head of Mental Health Nursing at for an informal discussion.

What’s in it for you?

With over 200 languages spoken across Greater Manchester, we want to create an inspirational, inclusive learning and working environment, celebrating the diversity of our University community in our everyday conversations. Our student population is already incredibly diverse, and we want to ensure this is reflected across our colleague profile as well.

To help you, we have wide ranging colleague support networks, promoting awareness events throughout the year and giving you the opportunity to share your experiences with others. Our extensive faith centre facilities reflect our continuing commitment to support the student and colleague experience and the beliefs and values you bring to our community.
