If you're looking to start your career in health and social care and have a degree in any subject, then you may qualify for our new Graduate Management Programme for 2018.

Run in partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy, this new one-year programme starts in January 2018.

You can apply between 11 August 2017 and 19 September 2017.

It doesn’t matter what you've studied or whether you have any experience working in health and social care. If you have a passion for taking care of other people, we want to hear from you. 

Succesful candidates will receive support from a designated placement supervisor and Skills for Care. You will be invited to network with the other graduates on the scheme and be given significant help to develop yourself into a social care leader. 

The new Graduate Management Programme matches the most suitable graduates to the best health and social care placements, where we think you can make a real difference.

You will receive an £18,000 tax-free bursary and your placement will last twelve months. 

I would encourage any graduate that has a passion for people and is committed and open to developing both personally and professionally to explore this scheme. The range of support and resources available to you provides you with the tools to shape and make the most of your year. I am certainly excited about continuing to learn and develop with such a diverse, challenging and rewarding sector.


Sally Beach, graduate trainee, 2015.

Already in such a short space of time, the scheme has really opened my eyes to the challenges facing the sector, whilst simultaneously providing me with the skills to complement and action my ambitions to help me overcome these challenges, catapulting my initial desire to do so.


Laura Crehan, graduate trainee, 2015.
