About us

Our vision is safe, effective and kind nursing and midwifery that improves everyone's health and wellbeing. As the professional regulator of more than 700,000 nursing and midwifery professionals, we have an important role to play in making this a reality.

Our core role is to regulate. First, we promote high professional standards for nurses and midwives across the UK, and nursing associates in England. Second, we maintain the register of professionals eligible to practise. Third, we investigate when nursing or midwifery care goes wrong - something that affects less than one percent of professionals each year.

To regulate well, we support our professions and the public. We create resources and guidance that are useful throughout people's careers, helping them to deliver our standards in practice and address new challenges. We also support people involved in our investigations, and we're increasing our visibility so people feel engaged and empowered to shape our work.

Regulating and supporting our professions allows us to influence health and social care. We share intelligence from our regulatory activities and work with our partners to support workforce planning and sector-wide decision making. We use our voice to speak up for a healthy and inclusive working environment for our professions.

About the roles

This is a great opportunity to join a friendly professional team committed to delivering the highest standards of governance and providing an excellent service to our Council and its committees and our Executive Board.

The roles cover the whole range of governance activities from providing high quality secretariat support; recruitment and induction of members; ensuring that our policies and processes reflect good practice; to organising events and helping produce our statutory annual reports.

Skills and experience required

You will be self-motivated, customer-focused and exceptionally well organised, with a track record of success in managing formal board and/or committee meetings and providing high-quality member support services. You will bring an understanding of public sector and charitable requirements and be able to interpret and apply relevant legislation and governance best practice.

You will have excellent written communication skills, able to tailor communications for a wide variety of audiences and have absolute attention to detail, accuracy and quality.

You will be able to build productive relationships and work collaboratively across the organisation. Your ability to influence will be highly developed, winning you the confidence of Council members and senior colleagues.

You will be happy working in a varied and changeable role and have the adaptability to manage this.

If you are an enthusiastic team player, with a 'can do' attitude, attention to detail and problem-solving skills, able to challenge and bring fresh ideas, we want to hear from you.
