We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated midwives to join our Trust. You will join a committed and experienced team of midwives who work closely with the wider multi-disciplinary team.

Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust delivers maternity care to over 5900 women per year which includes two beautiful stand-alone birth centres. We are lucky to host individual rooms in each of our inpatient areas which attracts birthing persons from the local area and further. You will have the opportunity to rotate to all clinical areas within the acute unit and enhance your skills and knowledge in all aspects of maternity care. If posts arise, you will then have the opportunity to apply for a core position in a preferred area.

Main duties of the job

We are proud of our excellent facilities which offer women real choice in place of birth. We achieve 1:1 care for all women choosing to birth with us, in every birth setting - Home Birth, Midwifery Led and Obstetric Led.

We have been nominated several times for RCM awards and are internationally recognised for our research and practises into 'Kangaroo Care', for the promotion of well-being in transitional care babies.

We have a vibrant workforce, and encourage the sharing of ideas and innovation from staff, to contribute to the evolution of our services, and shaping our strategy towards an outstanding organisation of the future.

If you are energetic, committed, and passionate then come and join our team, and be part of a Trust which is truly women centred and proud of its achievements.
