Management Training Scheme (MTS)

Graduate trainees

Trainee: Jamie Magaw

TYPE: Finance


Before the NHS Management Scheme:

  • Geography degree
  • Worked in public and private sectors for six years
  • Latterly worked in NHS

After Joining the Scheme:

"I wanted to move up to a position where I had more influence in the way health services were being run."

"The scheme offered this opportunity and much more - a post-graduate qualification and great personal development."

"I spent my first placement as manager of my host health board's out-of-hours service."

"This was a real job with plenty of operational challenges, including managing a department of over 45 staff."

"I spent my three-month elective in Canada, working with a team developing a child health network across British Colombia."

"My advice to anyone thinking of applying is to make sure you have plenty of enthusiasm and energy. If you're keen to develop a career in an organisation that makes a real difference to people's lives, then the NHS is a rewarding place to work."
