This will be achieved through sector-wide networking, developing initiatives, and seeking new opportunities to raise the profile of Learning Disability Nursing as a career, and the University’s position within Schools and Colleges across Kent and Medway, East Sussex, and Essex. The post holder will build strong relationships, working in partnership with key stakeholders and organisations to share resources and increase impact.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills with a proven track record of relationship management and engagement. You will possess excellent organisational skills. The post will require you to travel widely around Kent, surrounding counties, and South East London. If appointed you will join a highly experienced learning disability education team based both at the University of Greenwich and within KCHFT.  Full or part-time considered, including joint appointments or secondments, with agreement from your current employer.
