Senior Programme Lead - Resourcing, NHS Leadership Academy

We don't don't specifically look for previous experience in work - it is more how you can showcase your life skills and experiences in a way that shows you are right for us. However, if you can try to get some volunteering experience in your local NHS hospital, it will give you lots of things to talk about in your interview


Whatever your future leadership ambitions are, the NHS offers a fantastic start with a variety of challenging placements in an organisation that is wholeheartedly determined to provide equal opportunities to all employees. Selection for the scheme is based solely on aptitude and ability to ensure we have the best leaders for the NHS.
