Graduates jobs available in the NHS
Wednesday, 26 November 2008
The National Health System (NHS) will offer around 250 graduate training scheme places to its 2009 intake, it has been reported.
University leavers will be taken on in four different areas - finance, general management, human resources and informatics, reports the Times.
As part of a two year programme, graduates will take part in an education and development programme, conduct work experience and work towards a professional qualification.
Graduates can name a region of preference within which they would like to work, although some flexibility is expected, the newspaper suggests.
In terms of remuneration, new starters in England can expect to earn £21,500, while those working in Scotland will receive £21,000.
An NHS statement predicts competition for places may be fierce, as "many more" applications are received than places are available.
Earlier this week, the World of Learning claimed that graduates and other workers should be allowed time off work for professional development purposes.
