Application Advice:

Find out as much information as possible from the scheme itself before making a decision whether to apply.

Application Advice:

Be honest with yourself on whether you want to work for the NHS because the application is very rigorous and if your heart isn't in it then it will probably not be the best use of time. The role is amazing and has so far afforded me one of the best journeys of my life and has set me up in a brilliant career backed with a strong qualification which I will always benefit from.

Interview Advice:

I would recommend reading up on important white paper documents and looking into the history of the NHS and its values. Keep up to date on the political landscape, NHS structure changes and how this may impact trusts.

Graduate management trainee, finance, Oxford University Hospitals at NHS
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Examine your motivations for joining the NHS as this is integral to working within this organisation. On the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme you will be exposed to high level management structures, processes and be in a position to influence change.

Be clear about what you want from the Scheme. There is a big educational element to this position for all 4 specialisms (general management, health informatics, finance, HR) and the position will be as engaging as you allow it to be for you.

Although a trainee, the placements you will be working in will challenge you and you will have high expectations placed on you. Be prepared but enjoy the journey!

Interview Advice:

Be honest with yourself - question your motivations, your aspirations. What can you offer to the NHS and management? What can the NHS and the Scheme offer to help you develop?

This is as much about getting a job you enjoy as it is about the NHS employing the right person.

Implementation manager, Project management at NHS
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Apply through the NHS Graduate management scheme- it gives you a breadth of experience that would other wise take years to build up and trot out at interviews. BE WARNED: The grad scheme is not a "cohort of uni grads all in one place" kind of scheme...you are thrown in to the deep end and left to learn.

Interview Advice:

Use youth to your advantage- you are quick to learn, willing, have fresh eyes and a strong work ethic.

Service Redesign Manager, CCG Commissioner at NHS
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Candidates should make sure they thoroughly research the NHS leadership framework as the competencies, which we need to achieve to graduate from the scheme are based on it. It is very important to have the right values otherwise getting through the interview will be difficult; however, the framework indicates what sort of candidate the NHS Leadership Academy is looking for.

And obviously the usual - practice online tests.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you draw on a wide range of situations, and if possible,avoid University-related examples. Although I have not been an interviewer myself, I imagine it can get quite tedious listening about a group coursework for the tenth time.

Be authentic. Don't tell interviewers what you think they want to hear, be yourself and your values will shine through.

Thoroughly research the training scheme and consider if it's the right choice for you. Use the scheme's Facebook and Twitter accounts and app, website and blogs to engage with current trainees and the recruitment team as part of your research.

Interview Advice:

Interviews are largely competency-based. Look at the NHS Leadership Framework and think of some concise and structured examples from a range of settings (e.g. university, work, volunteering, hobbies) that fit these core qualities and values.

The interviews also include time to talk to current trainees so think of a few intelligent questions to ask them.

Read the full review »


Application Advice:

You want to want to work in the public health sector. It is an invaluable organisation however it is going through a difficult period so you need to be up for the challenge of improving services with limited resources.

Candidates should research the area they would like to work in and also find out what the scheme programme is like to see if it fits in with what you want.

Any NHS experience is good, though not necessary.

Interview Advice:

When answering competency based questions do not use the same example make sure you have a variety of answers for each competency. Again research the main issues for the organisation. Difficult for the NHS as it is such a hot topic that has constant changes going on but be at least aware of that.
