Management Training Scheme (MTS)

Scheme overview

Joining the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme puts you on the road to developing the skills and confidence you need to lead our organisation through its transformation into an ever more efficient, successful and professional health care service. You need to have the passion, energy, commitment and confidence to lead in the NHS in Scotland and a minimum of a 2:2 degree.

Our Plans for 2019

We'll provide the successful candidates with the skills and experience for a top-flight career in the NHS.  You'll enjoy mentoring, support and first class training from some of the most brilliant minds in and outside the NHS. You’ll experience some truly life defining moments. You’ll influence decisions that improve the lives of millions of people. And, after three years, you'll be ready to take your career further than you thought possible.

If your wish list and values match the NHS, then the Graduate Management Training Scheme will take you to places you would never have thought of. It will be an amazingly fulfilling adventure.
