Job Description

Job Title: Senior Governance Manager x 1 and Governance Manager x 1

Contract Status: Permanent

Salary:  Senior Governance Manager: £48,805 to £57,418 plus benefits

Governance Manager: £36,300 to £44,383 plus benefits

We are adopting a hybrid approach to working and our teams are planning for this. For most roles this will mean a mix of office based and remote working.

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 758, 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 when nursing or midwifery care goes wrong – something that affects less than one percent of professionals each year.

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 roles

You will be part of a friendly professional team committed to delivering the highest standards of governance and providing an excellent service to our Council, Committees and our Executive Board.

The roles cover the whole range of governance activities from providing high quality secretariat support and governance advice; inducting and supporting members; developing and designing governance frameworks and ensuring that our policies and processes reflect good practice.

About you

You will be self-motivated, customer-focused and exceptionally well organised, with a track record of success in managing formal board and/or committee meetings and providing high-quality member support services. You will bring a strong understanding of public sector and charitable governance requirements and be able to interpret and apply relevant legislation and governance best practice.

You will have excellent written communication skills, be able to tailor communications for a wide variety of audiences and have absolute attention to detail, accuracy and quality.

Your interpersonal skills and ability to influence will be highly developed, winning you the confidence of Council members and senior Executive colleagues. You will be able to build productive relationships and work collaboratively across the organisation and within the team.

For the Senior Governance Manager role, you will be able to lead and direct specific projects and get the best out of people, facilitating and supporting others to achieve our team objectives. You will be responsible for managing our electronic governance platforms and training others to use them.

If you enjoy the challenge of a fast-paced, demanding role, have a ‘can do’ attitude with impressive organisational skills and meticulous attention to detail, we want to hear from you.
