Higher business analyst
I wanted to work for the NHS and also had experience of analytics and statistics. After graduating, I applied for the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme. I was really pleased to get a place.

During the Scheme you are employed on a fixed-term contract and receive a salary.

The Scheme lasts for two years (two and a half years if you’re specialising in finance). It includes:

  • intensive foundation training
  • structured work placements, training alongside experienced clinicians and managers
  • an education programme leading to either a professional or a postgraduate qualification, depending on your specialism
  • specialist management development training including support and careers guidance
