We welcome applications for a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing to join a vibrant and creative community in the School of Life and Health Sciences at the University of Roehampton. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to our new nursing programmes through teaching excellence and partnership working. Come and be part of our rapidly growing, but supportive and collegiate, healthcare education team.
We are seeking applications from highly motivated candidates who have a strong track record in mental health practice and education. We are keen to hear from both experienced academics, and also clinical colleagues interested in exploring a new career pathway. Our innovative nursing programmes have a community/primary care focus, so experience in these areas is an advantage, but applications from a range of backgrounds are welcomed. A variety of flexible employment options are available including full time, part time and secondments.
The School of Life and Health Sciences at the University of Roehampton is a relatively new provider of nurse education but has quickly established a reputation for quality and innovation. We offer degrees in Adult, Mental Health, and Children’s Nursing and also a dual field integrated Masters in Adult and Mental Health Nursing. We recently started the Nurse Associate apprenticeship in partnership with local employers. Post-graduate Physiotherapy and Advanced Clinical Practice are also currently in development. We have campuses at the main Roehampton site and also at Croydon University Centre. We have three state-of-the-art clinical simulation centres, including our recently opened £3m Office for Students-funded Mary Seacole Health Innovation Centre. We have been commended by Health Education England for shifting the focus of healthcare education to better meet the needs of the future healthcare workforce.
At Roehampton, we help our students to develop the confidence, knowledge and adaptability they need for a successful graduate career and fulfilling life. We are a supportive, close-knit and inclusive community, with a proud history in education stretching back more than 175 years. We were the first UK institution to offer higher education to women. Our values come from this rich history, built on community, engagement and partnership, with a belief that no matter their background, we can help our students realise their ambitions.
We are based on a beautiful 64-acre parkland campus, with excellent facilities. Choosing to work with us means we will support your career trajectory. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package comprising of generous annual leave, membership of a defined benefit pension scheme and a hybrid and flexible working environment together with generous family friendly policies.
The University is committed to a supportive and safe learning and working environment that is equitable, diverse and inclusive, based on mutual respect and trust. Diversity, inclusion and equality are core to how we engage with students, colleagues, applicants, visitors, and stakeholders.
