Applying for our graduate management scheme. 

SCW runs a highly-regarded and well-established graduate management scheme. The scheme offers a unique opportunity for graduates to help transform the way health services work for patients and communities. Working together as a partner in the system, we bring a unique mix of NHS and commercial experience to support our customers, partners, patients and service users to address and find solutions to challenges.  

Would you like to be involved in shaping an important part of the NHS?

Our graduate management scheme spans two years and offers candidates 'action-based learning' and professional development in areas ranging from Transformation and Consultancy, Business Intelligence, Finance, Human Resources and Information Governance, giving graduates the opportunity for hands-on business training.

Candidates will be aligned to a service line, spending time in a range of teams or projects related to, and interlinking with that service. This allows candidates to experience the breadth and depth of SCW services. All this will be teamed with an ongoing learning and development programme, including activities such as:

  • Masterclasses delivered by specialists within the organisation
  • Action Learning Sets
  • Activities relating to the wider healthcare economy, such as joint projects
  • Industry-specific professional qualifications (such as Prince 2).

Is the graduate scheme right for you?

We operate in the commissioning support sector, which is still a developing and challenging environment. In the commercial landscape in which we find ourselves, our clients don’t have to use us. Instead, they choose to use us, because we deliver quality and value and because we help them to make a difference. 

With this in mind, we’re looking for ambitious and driven graduates who are keen to take the initiative and get things done in a resourceful and efficient manner.  Find out more about what we're looking for.

Values matter to us, which is why we’re looking for aspirational, collaborative, insightful and respectful people who’ll help us achieve our vision and put patients first. Find out more about SCW values.
