Find out about our available positions

Have you ever considered specialising in abortion or vasectomy care?

At Marie Stopes UK, our dedicated nurses and midwives are the heart of our charity. They work tirelessly to deliver high-quality, high-impact services that meet our client’s needs.

Working in the independent sector for a specalised service can be a fantastic alternative to working for the NHS. By joining us, you’ll become part of a committed team of people that work to make sure we provide the best possible care and support throughout the UK.

Our nursing roles

We offer a variety of nursing roles which can suit your lifestyle and career aspirations and give you professional satisfaction.

Centre nursing

Registered nurses work in our main centres providing excellence in abortion care. Reporting to the Clinical Operations Manager, our nurses are responsible for consultations, admissions and discharge of clients. It is a demanding yet rewarding role and Marie Stopes UK can offer training and support, as well as development opportunities.

District nursing

District nurses work independently and travel to our network of clinics across the United Kingdom. They provide early medical abortion services as close as possible to where women live so they do not need to travel as far. It is an autonomous and rewarding specialism.  

One Call nursing

One Call is our national call centre based in Bristol which provides support to clients 24 hours a day. From the moment a client dials our number, they are in safe caring hands. Our nurse advisors are responsible for phone consultations and advice on pre and post treatment care.

Vasectomy nursing

Registered nurses work in our main centres and specialist vasectomy clinics across the United Kingdom. They are responsible for consultations, admissions and discharge of clients, as well as supporting the vasectomy surgeon during procedures. Marie Stopes can offer training and support, as well as development opportunities in this specialist area.

Our nursing management roles

We nurture talented and passionate people who have the courage to push boundaries, make tough decisions and challenge others in line with our missions.

If you’re looking for the next step in your nursing career, Marie Stopes UK can offer that opportunity.

Clinical team leader

Clinical team leaders assist the clinical operations managers with the day to day running of our centres. In this busy and face-paced environment, they provide quality clinical care and guidance to clients through offering services ranging from abortion, ultrasound scanning to consultations and contraception.

Clinical operations manager

Clinical operations managers are responsible for the smooth running of our centres on a day to day basis. They are the main point of call for all clinical matters providing leadership on client care and clinical excellence. They coordinate the clinical team, ensure all staff are appropriately trained, and lead on changes in clinical practice and policy.
