Carol Greenway embarked on her professional journey by qualifying as a Registered Nurse in 1992. She worked clinically in Critical Care across various hospitals in Sheffield, Coventry, and Leicester.

In 2000, Carol transitioned into Higher Education, initially teaching undergraduate nurses at the University Central England, Birmingham.

In 2004, she moved to De Montfort University, Leicester, where initially she held a series of roles at post-registration level in the school and then moved into a faculty of health and life science’s international role. Her contributions extended across a spectrum of international activities, encompassing program development, student recruitment, summer schools, student global mobility, and hosting visiting scholars.

In this capacity, she plays a pivotal role in fostering the professional growth of clinical workforce members, catering to the needs of local, national, and international stakeholders.  This works ties in with her other role as Head of Global Engagement for the Institute of Clinical Sciences, where she supports students and academics in fostering global collaboration and knowledge exchange in a variety of healthcare initiatives.
