We are an NHS Trust of approximately 14,000 people, providing care for over a million and a half patients from north west London and beyond every year. We have a rich heritage and an ambitious vision for the future of our patients and local communities.

With our partners, Imperial College London, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, we form Imperial College Academic Health Science Centre, one of 6 academic health science centres in the UK, working to ensure the rapid translation of research for better patient care and excellence in education.

This is a senior Midwifery role and there is an expectation that the post holder will fully participate in the clinical and professional leadership within the organisation. This post requires an enthusiastic and motivated midwife with excellent leadership and communication skills who can demonstrate focus and commitment to creating positive birth experiences for women. Excellent management and leadership qualities are central in maintaining a supportive and forward thinking maternity service that places women and their family’s needs central to the service, as well as creating a dynamic and innovative environment for staff. You will have the necessary skills and confidence to practice autonomously, being competent in perineal repair and cannulation, and be committed to ensuring that women, babies and their families receive the care and support required to promote optimum outcomes and positive experiences.

It is expected that you will be educated to degree level, have a keen interest in patient safety, knowledge, on-going clinical development, an awareness of research based evidence/guidelines, be on the live mentor register and have competent IT skills.

Education in Mentorship teaching and assessing is essential, as is evidence of continued professional education and development.

You will provide day to day support to the midwives in your team. Midwives will be supported in their practice and professional development by a high profile and supportive approach from the Professional Midwifery advisor who will shortly be in post and the midwifery education team.

If you can see yourself as an effective member of a committed and ‘woman focused’ team, embracing a strong midwifery ethos you sound just the team member we are looking for!
