Welcome to the NHS Scotland Management Training Scheme

Scotland's health service aims to provide safe, effective, 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.


To help us achieve our vision, we want to attract the best graduates of today to deliver the improved services for tomorrow.  We are looking for exceptional people who want to commit to a General Management career in Scotland's most highly regarded public service, and who recognise that excellence in leadership and management is vital to the delivery of excellence in healthcare.


Our General Management scheme is looking for highly talented emotionally intelligent leaders who demononstrate our shared values of care and compassion, diginity and respect, openess, honestly and responsibility and quality and teamwork. 


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 £23, 125 per annum and fully funded though a relevant Masters level qualification.
