A bit about the School of Health and 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.

  • Contribute to our thinking and be challenging on how Salford can transform the way it addresses equity disparities, embraces diversity and becomes more inclusive.

You will have previous experience within the education sector. While HE experience would be a great match, we are also open to considering applicants from FE who can demonstrate an understanding of education programmes and are now looking to move into HE.
