Job summary

An opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and motivated Midwife to join us as a team leader for the birth centre.

Our co-located birth centre team provide holistic care throughout pregnancy and birth, with a firm emphasis on high quality care and patient choice.

As a team leader for the birth centre, you will support your colleagues in offering expert clinical intrapartum care as well as ensuring the smooth running of the birth centre.

Your team will consist of core birth centre midwives, who work alongside our continuity team midwives to deliver intrapartum care.
