The Role

Forward-looking, focused and innovative. Kingston University is yours to achieve. Join our dynamic School of Nursing and take the opportunity to develop the future nursing and healthcare workforce. In this key role you will strive to enhance nursing and healthcare practice and the reputation of our School of Nursing in the area of Learning Disability nursing and healthcare across all domains of practice. Articulate and well respected, you will teach on pre-registration nursing programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, taking the lead on modules where appropriate and in workforce development. In particular, you will have the ability to inspire our students and will have a keen interest in developing education. Alongside being involved in the pastoral care of students, you will be encouraged and supported to further your interests in research, enterprise or professional practice.

The Person

You will ideally be a nurse on the NMC register, educated to at least degree level, with experience of working with service users who have a learning disability. Equivalent professional qualifications considered. You are resourceful, highly motivated and ambitious. You are interested in teaching and can share your skills and expertise with the nursing and healthcare workforce of the future. A teaching qualification is desirable but non-essential. The Faculty supports new members of staff to gain appropriate qualifications and are keen to support ongoing academic and professional development. 

The Faculty

The Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education is a unique partnership between Kingston University and St George’s University of London and is a leading provider of health, social care and education programmes.  Our reputation for innovation in teaching, research excellence and graduate prospects attracts students with potential and ambition onto our nursing, midwifery, social work, paramedic science, physiotherapy, radiography and education courses.
