NHS Step into Health Insight Day for the Armed Forces Community

 Tuesday, 24th July 2018, 09:30 – 14:00

Warneford Hospital, Oxford, OX3 7JX

The ‘Step into Health’ Programme has been created because the NHS recognises the transferable skills and cultural values that armed forces personnel develop when serving, and how they are compatible with those required within NHS roles.

There are over 350 different careers in the NHS and there is a role for everyone with the right skills and values, almost half of which are non-clinical. You can enter the NHS whatever your background, previous work experience and qualifications.

Whether you are thinking of your long term future beyond the armed forces, currently making the transition to civilian life or are already a veteran looking for your next career move, this event is for you. Spouses and dependents of serving personnel and veterans are very welcome to attend to explore the varied career opportunities offered by the NHS.

About the Insight Day

We would like to invite you to explore the transferable skills that you have and the potential training and career opportunities available within the NHS: whether you are interested in catering, maintenance, administration, finance, communications, management, or a role in one of the clinical services, to name but a few, this programme will benefit you.

The morning will consist of talks from our Senior Lead for the Step into Health Programme, our HR Director as well as some of our veterans who have made the transition into the NHS.

You will then have the opportunity to meet some of our team members to find out about the wide-ranging roles available within the NHS and what it is like to work for an organisation that is dedicated to providing excellent care by excellent people.
