Health Education England is committed to recruiting the best person for the job, based solely on their ability and individual merit as measured against the criteria for the role; through a process that is fair, open, consistent and free from discrimination. Health Education England supports the values and pledges of the NHS Constitution. 

We are committed to being a diverse and an inclusive employer and will build a culture where all employees are valued, respected and acknowledged. We strive to ensure that no individual receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of their gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief, colour, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital or civil partnership status, transgender status, HIV status, social background, trade union membership or non-membership and is placed at a disadvantage by requirements or conditions that cannot be shown to be justifiable.  

HEE have policies and procedures in place to ensure that all applicants and employees are treated fairly and consistently.  We are proud to showcase our Disability Confident Employer accreditation, being an Inclusive Employer, a Stonewall Diversity Champion, our bronze award from the Defence Recognition Scheme, and we are delighted to support Apprenticeships and Tommy’s pregnancy at work scheme.

About HEE

The NHS belongs to the people and is founded on a common set of principles and values that bind together the communities and people it serves - patients and public - and the staff who work for it.

HEE's values are those of the NHS Constitution. They are: 

  • Working together for patients  
  • Compassion 
  • Respect and dignity 
  • Improving lives 
  • Commitment to quality of care 
  • Everyone counts

Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.

Here at HEE, we believe that the most important resource the NHS has is its people. Without a skilled workforce, there is no NHS. There are few careers that are as rewarding as one in the NHS, or that give you the opportunity to work with such a variety of people. Everyone can make a difference to patients.

HEE is made up of 7 regions spread across the country, these are North East and Yorkshire, North West, London, South East, South West, Midlands and East of England. We also have a National team which are responsible for different functions, including Innovation & Transformation, People & Communications, Finance, Workforce Planning & Intelligence and Strategy.

About the placements

We are looking for 12 individuals to join HEE for a period of 1 year in many different areas of work and locations within the organisation. This will ideally suit those looking for a sandwich year placement, but we are also interested in people who will be graduating in 2020.

Our placements will provide you with invaluable experience of working within a national NHS organisation that is very closely linked to the Department of Health and Social Care. You will gain an insight into how knowledge gained within your studies can work in practice. 

Placements are likely to be available in a variety of corporate functions eg 

  • Human Resources and Organisational Development
  • Finance
  • Communications
  • IT and Information Development

or within our business teams in regional offices located across England.
