An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic midwifery lecturer registered with the NMC, to join our dedicated and friendly team of midwifery lecturers in the Department of Allied Health Professions Midwifery and Social Work.

The successful applicant will be expected to participate in teaching, assessment and module management on the programmes delivered by the midwifery education team, and have the opportunity to contribute to research.

You will have a sustained interest and knowledge of contemporary midwifery practice, proficiency in English language, and good communication skills. You will be able to use your initiative and be self-motivating.
