The NHS scheme was acclaimed by the judges for communicating a strong link between cultural values and recruitment competencies. They were also impressed by its verification process involving senior managers, scheme alumni and trainees.

Nicola Fair, Corporate lead for the Graduate Training Scheme, said: “We are delighted with the scheme’s latest win, which provides further recognition of the serious approach the NHS is taking to ensure we produce quality future leaders. These Awards are recognition that the NHS is able to recruit and develop the most able senior leaders to deliver healthcare systems of the future.”
