Nursing and Midwifery Council – Panel Secretary

Job Title: Panel Secretary

Contract Status: 18 month fixed term contracts

Salary:  £28,823 – £33,909 per annum

Location:  – Currently home based due to Covid 19 Lockdown measures

We’re currently working remotely due to the pandemic, but we’re planning for a return to hybrid working by September. We’re working with our teams to plan this, and for most roles this will mean a mix of office based and remote working.

Working life doesn’t always have to be ‘nine to five’ and we support flexible working wherever possible. Please chat to our resourcing team about the flexibility we could offer for this role.

We are continuing to review our ways of working, and our return to our offices in the coming months will be gradual and considered, with the well-being of our teams as our primary focus as well as moving forward with incorporating remote working into our future.

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 725,000 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.
