The NHS is the largest employer in Europe. There are over 350 different careers in the NHS and there is a role for everyone with the right skills and values, almost half of which are non-clinical. You can enter the NHS whatever your background, previous work experience and qualifications. Once you are in the NHS, we will work with you to develop your career, and fulfil your potential.

Step into Health has been created because the NHS recognises the transferable skills and cultural values that the Armed Forces community develop, and how they are compatible with those required within NHS roles.

Unsure what role is for you? The newly launched ‘Find Your Career‘ tool by Health Careers will help. Spend 10 minutes to answer questions about your skills and experience to see where your future career could take you.

You can get in touch with Health Careers via their website or call them on 0345 60 60 655.

Step into Health is open to all service leavers, veterans and their families. It is an incredible opportunity in which employers are working with the Armed Forces community to provide career and development opportunities within the NHS.

Whether you are interested in catering, maintenance, administration, finance, communications, management, or a role in one of the clinical services, to name but a few, this programme will benefit you. The NHS is keen to invite you to explore your transferable skills and the potential training and career opportunities available. Contact the NHS organisations in your area to find out how they can support you.
