Top 5 Search Tips when Looking for an NHS Non-Medical Non-Clinical Role
With more than 1.7 million people working for the NHS, when you’re looking for a career at your local hospital or surgery, the following 5 tips can really help:
1. Look into it
There are over 350 different types of roles in the NHS, many of which are essential Non-Medical Non-Clinical. These supporting positions are in almost every field imaginable, from finance, management, administration and marketing to law, procurement and even a librarian.
Given the number of positions on offer within the NHS, when you’re looking for a Non-Medical Non-Clinical role it is essential you choose the one that’s best for you. Different skills will be more suited to different people which is why you need to spend a lot of time researching a role. This research can be done on sites such as Prospects and the NHS careers site itself. Ensure you read the job specifications and responsibilities before applying to confirm this is the right career for you.
2. Any vacancies?
Once you have researched your desired field and chosen which Non-Medical Non-Clinical career is best suited to you, it’s time to get the search going properly. The NHS career site and our own job listings can be tailored to specific roles, locations and levels which means that you’re not wasting time on irrelevant positions to your search.
It is worth checking through the local newspaper or going into your target hospital where they may advertise positions on a noticeboard or in the job section of a paper so that you’re not missing out on any opportunities.
3. Get Registering
When you’ve had a browse through the vacancies and applied for the ones you like, there is still more you can do. Sites such as our own job board, the NHS career site and even local hospitals and surgeries give you the option to register for job alerts. This means that you don’t have to check back with these sites everyday as you’ll receive an e-mail when a position in your chosen area comes up. This is a much more efficient way to search for jobs and can keep you ahead of the job curve.
4. Keep Updated
Looking for a new job can feel frustrating if you’ve applied for a few roles but nothing has come back. However, if your CV has been on a site for a few weeks then you should keep it updated otherwise your resume may be pushed further down the list for fresher, more recent CVs.
Keeping updated is not just about your application, it will help further down the line if you’re familiar with current news around the NHS. This current knowledge on the NHS means that you’ll be in the loop if a new centre is opening, so that you can apply as soon as the vacancies are advertised.
