An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences at Bournemouth University as we seek to appoint a motivated and energetic academic to contribute to the education and professional development of leaders and managers in health and social care.

As a principal academic you will support the day to operational arrangements of the centre, and support the development of work around the care of older people and the integration of health and social care provision.

You will be an excellent communicator, educator and researcher with professional credibility, confident in dealing with people in all levels of public organisations to help meet organisational needs with creative solutions.
