Recruiting staff

The Department of Health (DH) recruits staff from a diverse range of backgrounds and abilities.

The work of the Department is varied, exciting, challenging and rewarding. The main sections of the DH website provide an insight into the diversity of our work and how we work with the NHS and social care workforce. The DH offers both full and part-time positions and all staff are recruited through an application process. Staff contribute a range of skills acquired in the voluntary, private and public sector. Previous experience in a government department is not essential to apply for a post.

DH advertises specific individual vacancies as they arise. All vacancies can be viewed on the Civil Service Jobs online service and Directgov website (see links below). We also advertise our roles in local and national print and online media.

If you are interested in working for the NHS please see the NHS jobs website.
