Currently placed in Derriford, South-West.
The scheme is dynamic and mouldable, and can change to suit both my needs and the needs of my host placements. This type of diversity in a role is really important to me, and the fast-pace is something which will challenge me and motivate me to push myself. The scheme also offers me experiences which, as a newly graduated student, I wouldn't be exposed to normally.
Finally, the NHS helps millions of people and their loved ones, as it has helped those close to me and in some cases continues to do so. However it is facing forever-more increasing levels of stress and resource shortages, and I want to be able to work towards reducing this - to maintain, and hopefully even improve the service so it can continue to help us.
However, when applying for the scheme, you need to have a very true and solid reason as to why you want to work for the NHS. Knowing this, and being able to articulate it well, is the best piece of advice I can give you!
The award was eye-opening, challenging, but most of all, rewarding!
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.Visit website
