Job area information
A career in a support role in healthcare offers many different job opportunities in a wide range of settings and can involve many different sorts of job roles.
Whilst skills for support roles can be learned, some things are about ‘who you are’ – your values and attitudes. The Values for healthcare challenge will give you an idea of what working in a support role is like, and then help you check how suited you might be to working in the NHS.
You can find out more information about the 6 NHS values by selecting each of the values from the left hand menu.
How the challenge works
Choose any one of the featured job roles for your challenge - don’t worry too much about having to match your choice exactly to the type of job role you are thinking about. You only need to follow one job role to complete the challenge. Each job role provides a set of questions that you might be faced with every day in the NHS, together with four possible ways to respond. When you choose an option choose the one that matches most closely what you would do. We’re interested in what you would naturally do, so do give your initial response – this is likely to be the one that best represents you.
It takes about 15 minutes to complete so make sure you have enough time to get the most out of it. [Please note if you close mid-way through or navigate away your results can’t be saved and you’ll need to start again]. At the end you will receive detailed personal feedback that will tell you if you’ve got what it takes.
