Have you got current practice / skills teaching experience as an NMC-registered nurse or midwife supporting all levels of nursing, midwifery and healthcare practitioner?
Middlesex University is building on the achievements of its clinical skills team by appointing high achieving, dynamic and experienced NMC-registered practitioners, wishing to combine practice with academia.

Our ideal candidates will have significant recent experience of working within nursing or midwifery practice, confidence in teaching a range of clinical skills, with an interest in contemporary learning technologies. Preference will be given to candidates with experience of working in a skills lab setting, teaching either particularly resuscitation or moving and handling. With a relevant first degree you must also be currently registered as an adult nurse or midwife in the United Kingdom. Ideally, you will also have a teaching qualification, and have, or be working towards a higher degree.
We particularly welcome applications from (women and gender non-conforming individuals (or) people from a Black, Asian and Other Ethnic Backgrounds - n.b., it could be both) who are underrepresented in this area. All recruitment decisions will be based on merit.
