Looking for a change of career? Use your transferable skills to make a difference.
The National Health Service (NHS) is the UK’s biggest employer, with around 1.5 million staff in total across the UK. With this well-established national institution currently desperately needing to fill both medical and non-medical roles, there is a great opportunity for Service-leavers looking to re-enter the labour market and to put their many skills to good use.
Many of the valuable skills Service-leavers bring back from the Forces can be easily transferred to a career in the prison and probation service.

If you’re a Service-leaver looking for a fresh start and a new opportunity, it might be worth considering relocation to the North East. The region has a focus on regeneration and creating more skilled jobs fuelling predictions of improved economic growth.
