There are over 350 different jobs within the NHS – so there really is something for everyone. Most of us have accessed some form of healthcare in our lives – the first time would have been the day we were born! If someone mentions healthcare, we mostly think of hospitals and key roles such as doctors and nurses. But there are hundreds of roles in this sector that don’t require a specific medical qualification. This industry also looks after those in residential care, such as the elderly. If you work in social care, you could help people in their own homes, in residential homes or in a number of other places such as day centres or supported housing.
Did you know the NHS is the largest employer in the whole of the United Kingdom?
