Protecting the public, inspiring confidence
Nursing and Midwifery Council Member
We are seeking a new non-executive member to join our Council in May 2024.
- A financially qualified lay person with board/senior level audit experience and senior business/management experience who can chair our Audit Committee. This role is open to applicants from any of the four UK nations: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
We want to see safe, effective, and kind nursing and midwifery that improves everyone’s health and wellbeing. As the regulator of more than 808,400 nursing and midwifery professionals we have an important role to play in making this vision a reality.
Over the next three years, Government reforms will transform how we work, giving us greater autonomy and flexibility to deliver more effectively for the public and professionals. The Council will also change, becoming more accountable to the people we serve.
You will be joining a highly motivated, forward-thinking Council, united in our ambition to do our best for the public we serve and the professionals we regulate, working with our Executive team. Our values – to be fair, kind, collaborative, and ambitious, underpin everything we do.
You will join us at a crucial time, as the NMC keeps working hard to progress safely the fitness to practise caseload and create a supportive and inclusive working environment for everyone working in the NMC.
We strongly encourage applicants from Black and minority ethnic communities or with other diverse backgrounds as we want our Council to reflect the professions we regulate, and the people they care for.
You will need to be able to devote at least 3 days a month to the Council; in return you will receive an annual allowance (currently £15,166 a year) and reasonable expenses. An additional allowance of circa £2,000 per year is available for the Chair of the Audit Committee.
