Being a Community Midwife at Saint Mary’s (Managed Clinical Service) is being part of something special. That’s why we need amazing people who are adaptable, responsive to change and always looking to improve and develop innovative practice. Our maternity community bases include Wythenshawe, North Manchester, and Central Manchester (Oxford Road Campus) and you can choose your base to work at.

We provide a homebirth service which the community midwives support, with an on-call rota system and our community midwives are not required to support on site in the units at times of high activity.

You will be offered flexibility in working hours and shift patterns and we offer flexible hybrid working which includes working across inpatient areas or on the Birth Centre at North or Wythenshawe sites.

We have regular community training days, including working with Northwest Ambulance Service for home birth training. The community midwives work closely with the specialist young parent, refugee, and mental health midwives.
