Who is Staffordshire University? 

Staffordshire University is an award-winning institution with over 100 years’ experience in delivering excellent higher education. Our main Stoke-on-Trent campus is located in the heart of the UK, with Centres of Excellence located in the towns of Stafford and Shrewsbury.

After a highly successful year in 2019, which included entering THE World University rankings for the first time, securing TEF Gold, and climbing in all the league tables, our University has constantly expanded its physical presence through new and industry-leading building developments and facilities. Looking towards our 2030 strategy, we are now transforming specific business processes to improve the student experience and integrate a wider feeling of inclusion and safety for our on-campus community. 

About the role 

The School of Health and Social Care educates a range of health and social care professionals on courses that are approved by the regulatory bodies for those professions. Our students go on to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, Health and Care Professions Council and Social Work England. Our students need to uphold the standards of the relevant professional body during their time at the University, with the ultimate objective being protection of the public.

You will also work with other investigating officers to offer mentorship support and ensure consistency in approach as well as being involved in training colleagues in the School on Fitness to Practise Procedures.  

If you are interested in this unique opportunity and have the passion to support the Health Care Professionals of the future maintain their professional standards we would love to hear from you.
