NHS Reservists Scheme

A ground-breaking new scheme established to create a dedicated pool of workers who want to shape a new type of Reservist worker to compliment the dedicated NHS workforce.

A Reservist is passionate about patient care, working with diverse teams and can help the NHS during peak times, strike action and emergencies.

NHS Reservists are part of a paid, flexible workforce who are given the required training relevant to their role, working 32 days per year. The 32 days are made up of 27 days deployed (working within a reservist role) and up to 5 days of mandatory training which are paid.

  • Flexible working, to fit in around your time commitments i.e., work, family life, studying etc.
  • Full training will be provided and the opportunity to experience what it’s like to work for the NHS
  • Exposure to a varied working environment in acute, community and social care settings
  • Pastoral care services and the regular opportunity to keep in touch with your Reservist colleagues.

  • Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust
  • Imperial Hospital NHS Trust
  • London North West Healthcare
  • The Hillingdon Hospitals

  • Ward Helper (Clinical) (Band 2)
  • Ward Runner (Non-clinical) (Band 2)
  • Staff Nurse (Band 5)

Being part of the Reservist Community will allow you the opportunity to work with other people keen to help patients and other clinical staff within wards and departments.
