Working for the NHS
This employment initiative – ‘Step into Health‘ connects employers in the NHS to people from the Armed Forces community, by offering an access route into employment and career development opportunities. The programme recognises the transferable skills and cultural values that Armed Forces personnel develop when serving, and how they are compatible with those required within NHS roles. There are also non-clinical roles available and often offer flexible working options.
