Think that the NHS has only got clinical careers to offer? Think again.
There are more than 350 clinical and non-clinical roles in the NHS. Whatever your experience, the NHS has a career that could be suitable for you. Whether you are interested in maintenance, administration, management, finance, communications, catering, or a role in one of the clinical services, getting involved in Step into Health is a step towards a career in the NHS.
Different skills gained from serving in the Armed Forces or being part of the community can be linked across to different roles within the NHS. To read more about what is available, visit the Health Careers webpage or NHS Scotland Careers and see how your experience in the Armed Forces compares to what’s available in the NHS.
It’s not just the experience you have, but the skills that matter too. The NHS values the transferable skills such as teamwork, problem solving and communication that are a part of military life.
