NHS Management & Scientist entry schemes – latest

I know there is a lot of interest in the NHS graduate entry programmes (which are also very suitable for postgraduates – particularly the Scientist posts), so here’s the latest update from our NHS careers contact.NHSlogo

NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme

Latest news:

The closing date is 10.00 am on 3rd December 2012 – get your skates on if you’re going to apply (that last bit’s from me, not the NHS …)

Interview dates are scheduled as follows:

  • Derby – Tue 22/01/13,  Thu 24/01/13

Latest information:

The application cycle for 2013 entry will probably open in January/February 2013. However, this has not yet been confirmed and there are no details about the number of places that are likely to be offered.

The most current information about the 2012 recruitment cycle, including FAQs, is on the NHS Careers main website at:

Unofficial NHS STP info:

If you want any more info, I wrote a couple of posts for last year’s programme:

These are still some of the most popular posts I’ve ever written, so might be worth a look, until we’ve got some more info to go on.


As soon as information is received about the 2013 recruitment cycle, the NHS Careers website will be updated accordingly. You can keep updated with the Twitter feeds: @NHS_Careers and @Alan_Simmons
