The School of Health and Social Care is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer in Social Work to support its expanding provision of social work education and to complement our existing strengths in teaching, research, and professional practice. 

The University of Lincoln has established a reputation as one of the most dynamic, fastest growing universities in the UK. Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city it has built an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research, which is reflected in our Gold award in the national Teaching Excellence Framework. The University of Lincoln has been named as the Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021. 

Located in the College of Social Science (with the Schools of Psychology, Sports and Exercise Science, Education, Social and Political Sciences and the Lincoln Law School), the School of Health and Social Care offers a well-established range of undergraduate, post-graduate degrees, apprenticeships and post qualifying and post registration stand-alone programmes. In excess of 1800 students are currently registered on the School’s programme, with the majority undertaking qualifying programmes towards professional registration in Nursing, Midwifery, Paramedic, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Social Work. The School has an active consultancy and research focus locally, nationally and internationally, including the Community and Health Research Unit, renowned for its publicly engaged and transformational research in primary and preventative health and social care practice. The School of Health and Social Care is forward thinking and ambitious with plans to further develop education for health, social care and social work professionals at all academic levels. A significant feature of the School of Health and Social Care is its commitment to interprofessional learning, with cross teaching and collaboration. 

The University of Lincoln is now the academic partner in a consortium of companies lead by Capita who will be delivering multidisciplinary training and educational services to the Royal Navy in a partnership expected to last more than a decade. This is an exciting new post and the successful applicant will have the opportunity to take a significant role in delivering the registered Social Work education for the Royal Naval personnel.   

We are seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer who is a registered social worker with significant experience of designing, delivering and evaluating teaching and learning; project management experiences would be a considerable asset. Understanding of the professional requirements for social work and social work education is essential. 

We are looking for candidates who are dynamic, adaptable and innovative and who have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. They must have a confident and resourceful approach and be driven to achieve. They should demonstrate substantive evidence of planning, meeting deadlines and should have attention to detail in all they do. The successful candidate will join and be expected to contribute to an experienced team committed to enhancing the health and social well-being of people, with the opportunity to develop their consultancy and research profile and expectations.
