Working for the NHS in Wales

Selection of NHS Staff

The NHS is the largest employer in Wales with over 90,000 staff. There are over 350 career opportunities including everything from pharmacists to paramedics, gynaecologists to clinical engineers, radiographers to midwives and in vital support services such as administrative and clerical, estates, general/financial management, catering, domestics or health promotion.

You may not have thought of the NHS as a career option before, but many of the skills and much of the experience you have gained in school and other jobs are key in NHS roles.

Whatever skills, experience and qualifications you have the NHS can offer you an exciting and rewarding career.
