Job Details:    Job Description    

Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, The Department of Mental Health and Social Work offer an exciting opportunity for Social Work academics: Think Ahead Programme 

Posts can be based in London and are also available for remote working with interested candidates residing in the Midlands, North-West or North-East of England (with some travel for placement visits and Hendon Campus teaching and meetings). 

We are seeking to appoint a Social Work Lecturer to join our growing Social Work Academic Group. 

Middlesex University is the academic partner for Think Ahead; a national, mental health social work programme and whilst the post will primarily be aligned with the Think Ahead programme, there will also be opportunities to contribute to programmes in the wider social work programmes being delivered including the BA/MA Social Work and CPD programmes. 

The Social Work Academic Group is part of the Department of Mental Health and Social Work which is an exciting, multidisciplinary group of academics, with three active research centres in the areas of addictions, co-production and transcultural health. 

The successful candidates will have a proven background in social work practice and academic qualifications at postgraduate level (normally masters or equivalent). You should be able to work collaboratively and have some experience of delivering high quality teaching and facilitation of learning within a university and/or in practice settings as a Practice Educator or mentor. 

Candidates should have some practice experience in mental health and also have skills and knowledge in child and family and adult social work. As the Think Ahead programme is a national programme, with students undertaking their practice experiences across England, the post holder will be assigned to cover placement units located across England which requires regular travel with a hybrid-working model of online and on campus teaching (London) with regional recall teaching days. 

Please note CVs will only be accepted in addition to a fully completed application form.

An enhanced DBS check will be required for these posts.
