Your Career

With over 350 different careers across the system, there has never been a better time to start your career in healthcare at Norfolk and Waveney. There are a number of initiatives that are taking place over the next five years to support people into their career with us.

Creating new opportunities for our people is an essential ambition and is already taking place. As system leaders within N&W, it is important to work together to actively encourage local people to consider and start careers in health and care. This includes young people finishing school and college, those wanting a career change later in life or at different stages of their careers, and those wanting to return to practice.

Over the next five years, we will:

• Develop and implement a collaborative approach for apprenticeships for health and
care roles, at different levels, and actively encouraging local people to apply for the available opportunities for anyone who wants to work in health and care across N&W.

• Targeted recruitment campaigns e.g.  scoping the development of ‘joint bank’ between providers, Bringing Back Staff (BBS) and Student redeployments.

• Promote cross-working to develop and retain staff through apprenticeships across health and care providers. Develop and implement a system level reservist workforce, building on people that were willing to return to practice.
