NMC seeks four new Council members

28 October 2019

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is seeking four talented and committed new Council members to join its governing body.

The NMC particularly wants to hear from applicants that reflect the diversity of the communities it serves and those it regulates, including from black and minority ethnic backgrounds.

As the largest professional regulator in the UK, the NMC is looking for two lay members and two current registered nurses, midwives or nursing associates.

Successful candidates will be joining an ambitious, forward-thinking Council, determined to ensure its strategy makes a difference to people using health and care services across the UK.

Philip Graf, Chair of the Nursing and Midwifery Council, said:

“This is an exciting time to join our Council. We’re ambitious for our future and the professions we regulate and we want to support nurses, midwives and, in England, nursing associates to deliver the care we all want – safe, effective and kind.

“It is really important to me that our Council reflects society in all its diversity so we can be more attuned to the needs of the communities we serve.

“As a Council we need to work together as a team to take the big decisions in the public interest, providing support and constructive challenge to the Executive team to ensure we deliver on our new five year strategy.”

The NMC’s governing Council is made up of twelve members: six lay people and six nurses, midwives or nursing associates, all appointed by the Privy Council.

Saxton Bampfylde is acting as employment agency advisor to the NMC on these appointments.

You can learn more about and apply for the roles through Saxton Bampfylde’s website at www.saxbam.com/appointments using reference code QAQZB.

The closing date for applications is noon on Monday 25 November 2019.
