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?

The Directorate of Nursing and Midwifery, in the School of Health and Society at the University of Salford, is looking for a passionate, enthusiastic and creative professional to lead the future direction of practice learning for our students within the Directorate of Nursing and Midwifery.
