We are putting inspirational learning and impactful research at the heart of this strategy, recognising our academic expertise as our greatest asset.

The Role

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join the School of Science, Technology & Health to work with our partners and stakeholders to introduce Midwifery into the York St John university portfolio alongside our existing Nursing and Allied Health provision.
