Lay Chair of the Nursing and Midwifery Council

Are you passionate about making a difference? We are looking for a new Chair to lead us in making our vision a reality: safe, effective and kind nursing and midwifery that improves everyone’s health and wellbeing.

If you share our commitment to equality, and inclusion and can bring diversity of outlook and experience, then we want to hear from you.

We’re the largest professional regulator in the UK – regulating almost 725,000 nurses, midwives and, in England, nursing associates. The work they do touches all our lives.

Our ambitious strategy for 2020–2025 is the framework for everything we do and has guided our response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Over the past twelve months, we’ve refocused our efforts to support the UK’s response to the emergency, working closely with the four governments and our partners.

As we look to the future, we’re seeking an inspiring, strategic thinker to join us as Chair. You will be able to guide and challenge the Council and Executive, making sure we deliver on our ambitions to: improve the way we regulate, proactively support our professions and the public, influence the wider health and social care sector and lead us through significant regulatory and constitutional legislative reform.

You will truly live our values of kindness, fairness, ambition and collaboration.  You will be able to operate successfully on the national stage, forging and maintaining strong collaborative relationships with our key partners and inspiring confidence in our work. You will be responsive to the differing context and approaches across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

To do this successfully, you will need to spend at least two days a week on the role for which an annual allowance of £52,000 – £78,000 is payable, depending on the time commitment agreed.

Due to the legal constitution of the Council, we are only seeking lay candidates.

Hunter Healthcare is supporting our inclusive search and selection process. If you have the skills, values and passion we are looking for please contact Jenny Adrian on 07939 250 362 or Janice Scanlan on 07793 395 116 for an exploratory conversation.
