I am on the GMTS HR program. I started in September 2021 and really enjoyed my month-long orientation getting to see the different sides of the hospital I am based at and the services provided. I even got to watch surgery! On my first placement, I got to jump into the deep end looking after Cancer and Planned Care recruitment, the team were so helpful and I have learnt so much from them. The Scheme is a great way to get experience working for the NHS in different roles and departments, and making some great connections along the way.
The Scheme has been really fantastic at providing support, there are always several people I can speak to with any issues, personal and work related. The education you receive really dives into who you are as a person and how you can be the best manager you can be using the right techniques that match who you are. Getting the opportunity to work for the NHS is amazing and I would wholeheartedly encourage anyone even thinking about the program to apply, knowing you are making a difference every day for the NHS is a truly unique feeling.
