Description

Want to work for the NHS?

The NHS, in conjunction with The Royal Foundation and Walking With The Wounded, has designed the first access pathway from the military into the numerous career opportunities available in the NHS - the Step Into Health Programme.

The National Health Service (NHS) is one of the biggest employers in Europe, the largest in the UK and employs more than one million people in a surprising variety of jobs. With over 300 different career opportunities, including many non-clinical roles within management and ancillary services, there is a role to suit everyone.

The Step into Health Programme provides bespoke work experience packages and insight days for Veterans to explore the extensive career opportunities available. The programme is open to all Service leavers and Veterans.

In 2014 Step into Health ran its first pilot with the Norfolk & Norwich University Trust. 80% of those veterans who completed a work placement went on to either secure employment within the NHS or move into further education leading to a career in healthcare.

This event is aimed at engaging with Veterans and Service leavers to discuss the opportunities available within Bolton NHS Foundation Trust. On the day there will be presentations and Q&A sessions with NHS staff who have previously served in the military, as well as stands showing the variety of roles within the Trust and the access routes to these. There will also be opportunities to express your interest in work placements and to look at the current roles available.

Refreshments will be available on arrival at 3.30pm and the event will begin at 4pm.
