With the pandemic shining a light on the incredible work of nursing and midwifery teams, this is an opportunity for an individual with a background in nursing and/or midwifery to play a vital role in supporting the RCN Foundation's work and help shape the UK's healthcare landscape, particularly in Northern Ireland.

The Foundation is seeking an experienced individual to join its grants committee as an External Adviser. The committee oversees the Foundation’s grant-making activities for hardship, education, and nursing- and midwifery-led practice development and research projects.
