Tackling the ongoing recruitment crisis in NHS Finance departments.
Every NHS Finance Department is faced with problems recruiting and retaining excellent accountants and leaders. To combat these issues, we need to promote what it is like to work for the NHS in a finance department.
As a former Secondary School Teacher, Ben Underwood (a new member of the SDN team for the North East and Yorkshire Region) was given the opportunity to be creative and design resources which allow students or potential employees to experience what it is like to work for the NHS in a finance department.
Instead of giving students a lecture on why they should join the NHS – the resources we have created are fun, engaging and interactive. Each resource intentionally targets different skills that are required to be a successful member of the finance team.
