Nursing and Healthcare Vacancies at Worcester

Now more than ever we need high-quality and committed health professionals in our hospitals and community settings. At the University of Worcester, we are dedicated to doing all we can to educate and develop the outstanding nurses, midwives and allied health professionals who will meet the challenges facing the NHS, now and in the future.

Last summer the University of Worcester was awarded the largest allocation of additional health training places in the Country, whilst welcoming more students on to Nursing programmes in September this year. The creation of a new and distinctive medical school is a further exciting development for the University, the local community and the health sector, presenting an exceptional and timely opportunity to answer pressing and long-standing needs for a more innovative and targeted approach to medical education. The Three Counties Medical School has now been approved by the General Medical Council to recruit an intake of international students for entry in September 2022.

This dynamic and sustained increase in student numbers means the University is now seeking a number of new academic colleagues to join the Schools of Nursing and Midwifery and Allied Health and Community.

The School of Allied Health and Community

Allied Health at Worcester continues to build on its strong reputation for producing high-quality, capable and compassionate graduates. The School has a strong research presence, with the internationally renowned centres for Dementia Studies and the Mood Disorders Research Group with projects focussed on making a real impact in society. The School has strong ties with local NHS Trusts and partners across Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire and emphasises the importance of collaborating with these bodies in developing and educating our students.

The Three Counties School of Nursing and Midwifery

The School has long been synonymous with the development of outstanding nursing and midwifery practitioners, as well as the delivery of high-quality CPD programmes to enhance the skills of experienced professionals. The School has a burgeoning research presence, including the Philosophy and Ethics of Professional Practice Research Group, bringing together a wide range of academic disciplines to enhance our understanding of this important aspect of healthcare.

This year, the School was shortlisted as Nurse Education Provider of the Year (pre-registration) for the seventh time, an all-time record for any English university.

Working at Worcester

New colleagues will be joining a truly dedicated, collaborative and inclusive multidisciplinary team of teachers and researchers committed to providing an outstanding student experience for our students.

At Worcester, you will be encouraged to develop your own potential as an academic with support available for further study at masters or doctoral level where appropriate. Colleagues who are new to HE will be supported to complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (PGCLTHE) and acquire Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. The University is open to flexible working options, with part-time appointments considered for most roles.

The University of Worcester offers a diverse, collegial and stimulating environment to support both our staff and students to realise their potential, and we hope to welcome you as a new colleague soon.
