Being a reservist could be a great way to experience the range of NHS career opportunities that suit an individual’s lifestyle and circumstances.
Those who choose to become reservists will be part of a paid, flexible yet reliable workforce who will be given thorough training relevant to their role. That forms part of a comprehensive induction process and prepares them to support local hospitals, health clinics or GP surgeries.
Reservists will be required to fulfil a specific number of days per year for training and working. The number of days will vary by trust, but it will be approximately 20-30 days per year.
NHS reservists will be paid in line with the role they are doing.
