Graduate opportunities in Finance, General Management, Health Analysis, Health Informatics, HR and Policy & Strategy.
The NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme specialises in life-defining moments. And critical impacts. Nowhere else can what you learn as a graduate have the potential to help 53 million people all across England.
Its complex work that requires very high standards, so the next two years of your life will be very demanding. But it will give your career a brilliant trajectory - because weve designed these schemes to create the NHS chief executives and directors of tomorrow. And for every challenge youll face, therell be twice as many rewards waiting for you.
Its no wonder the scheme has won multiple awards and is highly ranked in The Guardian UK300 and Times Top 100 of most popular graduate employers. After completing the scheme, graduates have already progressed to a range of senior posts, with an average starting salary of over £33,000.
Graduates specialise in one of five areas: Finance Management, General Management, Human Resources Management, Health Informatics, Health Analysis and Policy and Strategy. As you grow personally and professionally youll gain specialist skills while receiving full support from a dedicated mentor at Executive level.
To get the most out of it, youll need to be bright, bold and open-minded. Youll also need to be flexible. Theres no one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare in England, so your training and experiences will be very diverse too. You must be ready to gain exposure to the NHS at different levels, around different cultures and viewpoints - and anywhere in the country.
It all starts with your induction, which includes 20 days in which you can set the agenda, experiencing NHS life on the frontline. So if you want to ride with an ambulance crew or observe an autopsy, you can. Later, youll arrange a flexi-placement which could take you outside the NHS - its all about acquiring new perspectives.
Because the scheme offers a fast-track route to a senior-level role, it wont be long before youre taking on significant responsibilities in a full-time job across diverse placements.
This calls for strong self-motivation, deep determination and excellent organisational abilities as you tackle complex problems head on and contribute new ideas. Working for the NHS will often mean standing up to high levels of public scrutiny and having your decisions closely inspected. You must be tenacious, resilient and able to respond to constant change. After all, the NHS expects you to be a leader of the future.
