The NHS is Europe’s largest employer, employing over 1.3 million people. This means there are many sites throughout England where you could be based.

The map illustrates how we divide England into geographical regions.

We offer a diverse range of locations across England, more than most graduate Schemes. When you apply you’ll be asked to nominate your three preferred working regions and to be clear and upfront about your personal circumstances if you want us to consider these.

APPLICATION TIP: A region consists of different cities and towns, the East of England is not only Cambridge, the South-West is more diverse than Bristol and Bath and Yorkshire offers more than just Leeds ... and all areas offer their own rewards and challenges.

Your placements can be in different parts of a region. Look at a map, see which towns and cities there are and where, so you have an understanding of the regions you choose in your application

We’ll always try to place you in one of your choices. However, this may not always be possible and we may need to offer you a role outside your preferred areas - as we need to also consider the needs of the NHS organisations which will host you and the people and patients they serve.
