The NHS currently employs more than 1.7 million people. It is the biggest employer in the UK, and the fifth largest in the World. Caring for millions of people every day, the NHS workforce has become a British institution.
Each NHS trust throughout the UK provides a comprehensive range of health services and as such there are a huge number of job roles within the organisation, throughout all disciplines. From fully qualified senior healthcare professionals, to admin, clerical, kitchen staff, porters, support workers, assistants and many more. Job Medic has partnered with over 30 NHS Trusts to deliver thousands of jobs over more than 300 roles.
Salaries within the NHS are varied. Non-medical and non-clinical workers can expect to receive around £14,300 for an entry level role, while those at the most senior level can earn over £90,000. Childcare and school support are offered as the NHS recognises the personal needs of their staff, with shift work, part time and job share roles all available. Constant training and reviews are also offered throughout, with new opportunities and progression playing a large part in staff retention.
It is clear to see why the NHS is an attractive career option many in the healthcare industry.
