We are seeking to recruit two enthusiastic, skilled and highly motivated Advanced Paediatric Practitioners to contribute to the delivery and development of our MSc Advanced Paediatric and Neonatal Practice. Candidates will need to have proven experience and ability at advanced practice level to take responsibility for delivery of one of the clinically focussed pathways through the programme; either Paediatric Emergency and Ambulatory Care or Paediatric Acute and Critical Care.

Successful candidates will be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council or Health Care Professions Council and be non-medical prescribers as well as be educated to masters level and will have consolidated their clinical, education, leadership and research skills at advanced practice level. Candidates will be able to demonstrate the current clinical knowledge, experience and assessment skills required to support the development of students practice and academic progression at advanced level. Along with being able to contribute their expertise to the delivery of the MSc Advanced Paediatric and Neonatal Practice, candidates will engage in curriculum development and research alongside other colleagues within the programme team. They will also have the opportunity to take advantage of in-service development activities offered by the university to help them to achieve this, including on-line delivery and technology enhanced learning.

The posts are offered on a 14 month fixed term basis in the first instance, with the potential to review if demand for the programme is sustained. We appreciate that candidates are likely to want to maintain their clinical expertise whilst in post. We are therefore offering the posts on a 0.4 fte basis and would be willing to consider candidates on the basis of secondment from substantive practitioner posts or employment contracts with the university.
