We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic lecturer to contribute to the provision of high-quality teaching to our paramedic and allied health programmes within the School of Allied Health and Midwifery. You will teach primarily on the pre-registration paramedic courses and on relevant post-registration CPD courses. You will need to be committed to the maintenance of high academic standards and enhancement of the student experience and be prepared to contribute to the development of the faculty’s portfolio of courses, linking with relevant external partners, and the generation of external income for the University. We are committed to improving diversity in our paramedic teaching team and would welcome applications from Black and Global Majority candidates.
You will be educated to a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree level or equivalent and preferably have completed, or be willing to work towards, a Masters qualification and a post-graduate certificate in education.

You will have a high level of insight into contemporary paramedic practice and knowledge of contemporary policy and professional standards. Experience of teaching in an academic or clinical setting is essential and candidates with a research profile are welcomed. You should show a commitment to innovative teaching practices to maximise your contribution to the academic portfolio.
