About GMTS flexi-placements

We work alongside the NHS Leadership Academy and the network of Local Leadership Academies to deliver the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme (GMTS). In the North West, around 15 trainees join the Scheme each year.  

A key component of the Scheme is an eight-week flexi placement which enables trainees to gain work experience outside of their two main placements. We are aware that there are lots of organisations in the North West which could offer trainees a fantastic insight into the health and care system, and which could benefit from an additional resource for eight weeks. With trainees specialising in Finance, General Management, HR and Informatics, we would be delighted to hear from you if you have a great idea for a placement.

Become a flexi-placement host

Please see related resources for information about flexi placements. If you would like to offer a flexi placement complete an Expression of Interest form and email it to nwla.gmtsnw@nhs.net.

We will share the proposals with trainees for their consideration when they are seeking a flexi placement. General Management, HR and Informatics placements take place in September/October and Finance flexi placements in June/July. If you need any more information at this stage, please do not hesitate to contact us.
