Successful applicants will join a dynamic and innovative team and will make a major contribution to the leadership, management and delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes.

Excellent communication skills with an ability to be flexible and responsive in a team are crucial to the roles. You will be expected to make a contribution to research in line with Faculty research themes. All themes have successful research leaders who play a key role in supporting and developing academic staff to further enhance their research profile. This is an exciting opportunity for appointees to join a Faculty with a growing research culture and portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes which address key workforce challenges.

Current registration as a midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council is essential. Similarly, you will be experienced as a Midwifery Lecturer and have an excellent reputation for teaching and supporting students in higher education. You will enjoy a challenge and thrive on new opportunities and experiences, stretching your talents and developing your expertise in tandem with sound emotional intelligence and a keen drive to work collegiately with peers and students alike.

We want you to feel happy when you come to work and proud when you go home.

At Edge Hill you will have the opportunity to have a lunchtime scenic stroll across our beautiful campus for a picnic, get a trim from our onsite hairdresser, make an appointment for a back massage, take along your children to a family fun day or get together with colleagues over free food and drink to watch the latest film.
