Time commitment: c.3 days/month
What we do
We are the professional regulator of the UK’s over 715,000 registered nurses, midwives and, in England, nursing associates. We work to ensure these dedicated, caring professionals have the knowledge and skills to deliver consistent, quality care that keeps people safe.
We want to support the professionals on our register in making a difference for the benefit of people using health and social care services across the UK. We have a new five year strategy 2020–2025 that will help us achieve our ambition; https://www.nmc.org.uk/strategy
The Council is looking for up to two people to join us as Associates.
We are particularly keen to attract registered midwives and/or midwifery or nursing professionals from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.
This is an opportunity to gain first-hand experience of what being a Council member involves and develop the skills and expertise needed to be a Non-Executive Director.
Associates will have a chance to be involved in all aspects of the Council’s work and contribute to the Council’s business in a similar way to appointed Council members.
We are looking for individuals who have the talent, ability and potential to develop the skills needed to succeed in a Non-Executive level role and who can bring an additional perspective to the Council’s discussions.
We expect these appointments to be for up to two years. During that time you would need to be willing and able to commit around 3 days a month to Council activities. These are not necessarily 3 working days – some of this time will be preparation and reading which you can do at times that best suit you. You will receive an allowance based on time committed in line with the Council’s allowances policy.
You will be joining an ambitious, forward-thinking Council determined to ensure our strategy makes a difference to the health and care of all our communities.
