Pilot Communications Graduate Management Training Scheme
Imagine what it’s like being part of a press office team during a global healthcare issue like swine flu, with massive amounts of information collected and distributed within a matter of days, or liaising with the local press after an incident at your hospital or even helping NHS departments engage with a wide range of stakeholders. Combine this with the other projects that come from working within one of the world’s largest employers and you’ll be facing challenges from the start that, in terms of career experience, will set you up for anything the future holds.
Gain world-class communication skills playing a vital role in the inner workings of one of the world’s biggest organisations and as a trainee on this pilot scheme, you’ll be a pioneer setting the standard for the years to come.
Along with all the training and development you’d expect, we’re also offering a starting salary of £21,733. We’re looking for twelve people who are keen to learn, quick to pick up ideas and who want to develop their skills in NHS communications and who aspire to be a leader of the future.
Closing date: 12pm, June 25th 2009
