We make no apologies for asking a lot of our emerging leaders. The complexity and importance of the work they do demands very high standards. But we’ve thought carefully about how we reward people in return. Here you’ll find a breakdown of the package we offer.

Competitive salary

Competitive salary

You’ll receive a starting salary of £23,125 (plus higher cost of living allowance where it’s applicable), and the opportunity to earn a 5% raise after both 12 and 24 months (Finance trainees only) subject to satisfactory performance in the role.

27 days’ holiday

27 days’ holiday

Plus bank holidays on top.

Fully financially supported study package

Fully financially supported study package

You’ll gain at least one professional qualification during your time on the scheme.  We fund it, so it comes at no cost to you, and you get time off to study.

Extensive on-the-job training

Extensive on-the-job training

Training and development is an enormous priority at the NHS. There will be lots of training and development opportunities available throughout your time on the scheme.  Some in a structured, classroom format, but a lot of it on-the-job. What we mean by this is you’ll get to work with – and learn from – experts and leaders from all over the NHS, as well as receiving levels of decision-making responsibility that will send your career forward impressively.

Pension

Pension

You’ll be automatically enrolled onto the NHS’s highly regarded pension scheme when you start with us – unless you choose to opt out.

Financial discounts

Financial discounts

Should you join us you’ll have access to an exclusive site for NHS staff, giving you discounts and offers on a range of products, services and leisure activities. 

Sports clubs

Sports clubs

Sports clubs have always been part of life for NHS leaders. Whichever part of the country you work in, you’re sure to find a team or a sport that’s right for you.

Capped salary protection

Capped salary protection

If you’re a current NHS employee and you are employed in the NHS on 1 December 2017, with a minimum of 12 months’ service, you may be eligible for pay protection. Protection is up to 85% of the top of Band 6, based on your average basic salary over 3 months prior to starting the scheme (excluding high cost area supplement). 

Interest-free season-ticket loan

Interest-free season-ticket loan

If you have expensive travel costs each year to get to work, we can help you spread the cost with an interest free loan. Buying a season ticket in advance also brings your cost-per-journey down significantly. We’ll provide you with the total amount for your season ticket and then deduct monthly payments directly from your net pay.

Childcare vouchers

Childcare vouchers

The perfect way to reduce your childcare costs. You can buy up to £243 worth of tax-free childcare vouchers per month which you then use to pay your registered childcare provider directly. Our scheme saves you money because the value of your vouchers is deducted from your pay before Income Tax and National Insurance.
