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 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 concerns about nurses, midwives and nursing associates - something that affects less than one percent of professionals each year. We believe in giving professionals the chance to address concerns, but we'll always take action when needed.

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 role

This role is central to strengthening the NMC's engagement with key partners. Sitting in the stakeholder engagement team, the post holder will lead and deliver strategic stakeholder engagement and communications activities across the NMC's major programmes of work, and will have specific responsibility for a particular stakeholder audience.

Stakeholder engagement is a central part of how the NMC will deliver on the ambitions we've set out in our strategy. In acknowledgment of this, we've created two new senior stakeholder engagement officer roles to make sure we have people with the right skills to support the organisation to build and nurture relationships with partners.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced communications and engagement professional to develop their career. You'll lead the NMC's work with a defined audience of stakeholders, advising senior leaders on approaches to strengthen relationships and developing bespoke plans to improve how we collaborate with our partners. The post holder will also have opportunities to lead communications and engagement activity for key programmes of work.

About you

You'll be ambitious and looking for a role where you can work with autonomy and develop your skills as a stakeholder engagement specialist. You'll have a track record of success in a communication or engagement role - if you've done this in the health and social care sector that's a plus.

You'll be able to build and nurture relationships and gain the trust and confidence of others, both with your colleagues and external partners. You'll have experience of different engagement and co-production methods, and enjoy working to meaningfully involve a wide range of stakeholders in policy and project development.

You'll have excellent written communication skills and experience in preparing professional, high-quality letters and briefings. You'll be able to monitor, analyse and interpret external stakeholder developments and communicate it in a clear, accessible way for colleagues. We often face lots of competing priorities, so you'll be organised and able to manage a busy and varied workload.

Why work for the NMC?

Our people are at the heart of everything we do. We aim to recruit the right people in the right places and we value the contribution they make to the success of our organisation. In return, we offer a comprehensive and competitive benefits package. To find out further information, please look at our benefits page.
