Starting your NHS Career

It is increasingly important for NHS Scotland to develop a workforce that can not only cope with the current demand for health services but will also be able to deliver a high standard of care in the future.  

This means attracting, training and retaining members of staff to ensure we have an appropriately trained workforce today, and in the years ahead, while recognising that additional support or new mechanisms for supporting entry to the workforce may be required for under-represented groups and those who experience barriers to employment

Working with a range of partner agencies we are working on the following:

  • Raising the awareness of the range of career opportunities within the NHS and pathways into these. This includes a revised calendar of schools engagement activity, development of a revised model of school work experience and an online resource for careers information.
  • Developing new pathways for entry level jobs which will include pre-employment programmes
  • Ongoing development and expansion of the Apprenticeship Programme. 

We promote a culture of inclusion across the organisation and are proud of the diverse workforce we have.

If you are leaving school, returning to the workplace, changing your career or starting out NHSGGC has something to offer you.
