Part time (min 18.75 hours



The Yorkshire & Humber and the North East Children’s Operational Delivery Networks (ODNs) have been developed with a focus on operational delivery. To ensure outcomes and quality standards are improved and evidence based networked patient pathways are followed. They focus on an operational role, supporting the activity of Provider Trusts in service delivery, improvement and delivery of a commissioned pathway, with a key focus on quality and equity of access to service provision. A key element of this is the delivery of regional education and training programmes.


The networks cover wide geographical areas incorporating 3 main Tertiary units - Leeds, Newcastle and Sheffield in addition to Bradford and Hull as providers of Neonatal Intensive Care Services. This brings together clinical opinion in order to deliver excellent care and treatment for children, improving outcomes, quality of care and the experience of the patient and family.


The Neonatal ODN is seeking a Nurse Educator who will undertake the lead role in delivering education, training and practice development across Neonatal Services within the ODN. In partnership with the Network Manager, Lead Clinicians, Lead Nurse and clinical staff in provider services, the post holder is responsible for leading in the planning and provision of educational events to meet the objectives of the Network. He/she will provide training programmes for care of neonates. He/she will maintain links with institutes of further learning to ensure the on going training provision for the specific care pathways and conditions as well as other ODNs.


The post is aimed at neonatal nursing staff with highly developed education and training skills in order to lead on the training requirements across the region on behalf of the ODN.


The posts will be on a fixed term / secondment basis (initially up to 2 years) in the first instance. We require full – time hours but due to the size of the geographical areas we would particularly welcome part-time applicants to work alongside each other or job share arrangements.


Please note – the current office base is Sheffield but we will be relocating to J37, M1 North – summer 2019.
