Job overview

UWE Bristol is an ambitious university. Together, our people are working hard to advance knowledge, inspire people and transform futures. We are looking for people with the skills and ambition to help us achieve those aims.

We are a well-established university, with over 27,000 students, 250,000 alumni and 3,000 staff. Students come to study with us from all over the UK, as well as from 140 different countries around the world, making this a diverse and interesting place to come and study.

Bristol itself is a hub of social and cultural activity. A place with a strong, creative and fiercely independent mindset. A city with a buzzing music scene, great restaurants and interesting business ventures. It’s not surprising Bristol is consistently named as one of the best places to live and work in the UK.

With over 450 inspiring staff and over 8000 aspiring students, the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences strives to provide higher education with impact and positive benefits for society. The Faculty is a large, diverse and dynamic part of the University, bringing together experts from Allied Health Professions, Applied Sciences, Health and Social Sciences and Nursing and Midwifery.

We are united by our commitment to providing an inspirational and career-creating learning experience for all our undergraduate, postgraduate and professional students, one that equips them with the skills, knowledge, enterprise, real-world experience and confidence to succeed in a wide range of environments. It’s a commitment backed by an outstanding reputation for teaching excellence, world-class facilities, strong partnerships and a focus on research with impact at regional, national and global levels.

Our staff are professional practitioners and researchers at the forefront of their specialist areas. Our students benefit from their cutting-edge insight, practical experience and innovative approaches to teaching. We collaborate closely with employers and stakeholders to ensure that our curricula remain current, topical and relevant to societal needs. Many of our programmes also lead to professional registration and accreditation.

All our programmes have a substantial practice-orientation providing students with opportunities to apply their academic knowledge to real-world challenges through clinical practice, work-based experience, fieldwork and residential trips in the UK and abroad. Our partners offer placements or internships, set live briefs, participate in teaching and work with us on research projects and provide graduate jobs.

This practical focus is also reflected in our continuing investment in state-of-the-art facilities. We have excellent formal and informal learning spaces, outstanding laboratories, superb simulation facilities including high fidelity manikins and acute hospital wards, virtual laboratories and scenarios, a VERT suite for radiography and a simulation house. Our facilities provide excellent opportunities for the demonstration and practice of professional competencies for all students.

The Faculty has a vibrant research culture, organised around four University Centres of Excellence The Centre for Appearance Research, The Centre for Health and Clinical Research, The Centre for Research in Biosciences and the Science Communication Unit; and three research groups in Psychological Sciences; Social Sciences; and Public Health and Wellbeing. In addition, we work with colleagues across the University in our Institute of Bio-sensing Technology and the Health Technology Hub in the University Enterprise Zone. Our work makes world-leading contributions to the global academic community and society, as well as enhancing the quality of our teaching and the student experience.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Paramedic, with a drive for education to get involved in the development and delivery of a progressive Paramedic Science programme.

We at UWE are seeking an enthusiastic and inspiring individual to join our successful and highly committed team in delivering learning to our Paramedic Science students.
