Main duties of the job


Better Births Midwife- Band 5 or Band 6

In line with the national Better Births agenda, we have reconfigured the way we provide care to ensure we provide consistent quality, safety and continuity. We have a shared vision for high quality, safe and sustainable maternity services with the SW London and Surrey Heartlands Local Maternity Systems.

We are looking for midwives who share our passion for high quality care and experience for women, and offer opportunities to be involved at the front line of service transformation. We have opportunities now to join our St Helier team, and welcome applications from either newly qualified or more experienced band 6 midwives to join us on our journey. These roles ensure that all midwives grow and maintain competency in all areas of the maternity pathway, and also play a key part in the significant development of our services.

We have a very robust preceptorship programme for newly qualified midwives in addition to many opportunities for in house training and development. We offer a warm, friendly and supportive environment to work in. If you are passionate about being at the forefront of the changes occurring in midwifery services and shaping sustainable quality improvements, we would love to hear from you. This is an excellent opportunity for you to progress in your career and to develop your midwifery skills in a fully supported environment.
