Career Pathways in Health

Career Pathways in Health

With over 300 different roles, the UK health sector offers huge opportunities to start and progress an interesting career.

Career frameworks illustrate the range of opportunities at different points of a career, ranging from entry at level 1 to a senior position at level 9. You should use this tool if you are considering a career in health, but are not sure where to start or whether you have the right skills and qualifications. If you already work in the sector, you may not be aware of all the opportunities.

We have based this careers tool on the Career Framework for Health. You can have a look at a range of careers in:

  • Allied Health Professions (AHP) and support roles
  • Health Informatics
  • Public Health
  • Administration, Business Support and Management of Health Services

In addition to some brief job descriptions, we also have

  • case studies, showing individual's progressing through their career
  • illustrations of two patient pathways and some of the many roles that will be involved
  • an illustrative model of potential qualifications routes
