Health Careers literature
A new-look booklet and eye-catching postcards are available for careers events and discussions!
Our new printed materials aim to better support both careers professionals and teachers and those considering their career options.
The bright new booklet and postcards are designed to challenge some of these myths about working in the NHS, while offering insights into the huge range of careers on offer.
Extensive research with students, careers professionals, teachers and those wanting to change career showed that people:
- want to feel inspired, whatever stage they’re at in their career
- like to have something to ‘take away’ from careers events and conversations but it doesn't need to be a comprehensive booklet
- are happy to look up information for themselves
What's on offer
We have a new pocket-sized booklet called 350 Careers, One NHS, Your Future which provides information about:
- what it’s like to work in the NHS
- 65 different NHS careers
- NHS values
The information inside is colour-coded to make it easy to find information in 14 career categories, and there are details about where to find out more and how to reach us on social media.
We’re delighted to be able to provide up to 150 copies of the booklet per order.
Please note that 350 Careers, One NHS Your Future replaces A career for you in health.

Each of our new eye-catching postcards has a strong image and message on the front that:
