Welcome to the NHS Scotland Management Training Scheme


Scotland's Health Service aims to provide safe, effective and person centred care. Our vision is that by 2020 everyone is able to live longer, healthier lives at home or in a homely setting. We are putting quality improvement and people at the heart of everything we do. 


NHS Scotland needs leaders who can respond to the needs of the people we care for by introducing new, improved ways of working in our bid to become world-leading. Every year our scheme recruits highly talented, emotionally intelligent leaders who demonstrate our shared values of care and compassion, dignity and respect, openness, honesty and responsibility, quality and teamwork. 


For 2015, we are looking for exceptional people who want to commit to a Financial Management career and who recognise that excellence in management is vital to the delivery of excellence in healthcare. Your head may be in the figures, but your heart will be in the Service.


In return we offer a three year in-work development programme, working and learning alongside some of the country's top NHS managers and clinicians, a starting salary of £22,600, and fully funded support through the CIPFA qualification.
