Lawyer, Fitness to Practise Permanent contract X 2 Salary £ 48,162 per annum plus benefits Edinburgh About us The Nursing and Midwifery Council exists to protect the public. We do this by ensuring that only those who meet our requirements are allowed to practise as a nurse or midwife in the UK. We take action if concerns are raised about whether a nurse or midwife is fit to practise. About the role You will play a pivotal role in supporting both the investigation and case presentation business units. Our lawyers advise, review and prepare fitness to practise investigations as well as conduct advocacy in substantive and non-substantive hearings before our practice committees. For advocates with higher rights (which are desirable but not essential) there is the opportunity to appear in proceedings before the High Court and Court of Session. Lawyers are also required to conduct litigation, where permitted to do so by their regulatory body. About you Good advocacy and investigatory skills are essential. Experience of regulatory law (particularly healthcare regulation) will be an advantage. These posts are based in our Edinburgh office, but lawyers are expected to travel within the UK to attend hearings and meetings as required.
