Health Education England is inviting visitors to explore the new Health Careers website which brings together the very best content from the NHS Careers, Medical Careers and PHORCaST (public health careers) websites.
The website has been built following in-depth research and user testing, and created with the user experience firmly in mind. There’s information for everyone – those of any age thinking about a career in health, to those who’ve already started a career in health and are thinking about their next step.
It’s been designed to be compatible with all browsers and devices, including mobile phones and tablets.
The new site provides detailed information on more than 350 roles in health, a number of real-life stories and videos, as well as a comprehensive course finder which lists more than 1000 courses leading to a career in health. There’s also a searchable resources section including the recently updated work experience toolkit and downloadable careers publications (our ‘Careers in…’ series).
Health Careers also has some great new tools such as:
- a personalised homepage based on your interests
- a ‘compare roles’ tool enabling users to compare bite-sized information on up to three different roles
- a ‘related roles’ function so users can explore roles similar to the ones they are interested in, but may not have considered or even heard of before
- an events calendar for information on career related events across the country such as university open days or careers fairs
Visit www.healthcareers.nhs.uk today and register to receive ongoing information about careers in health.
