At the same time, you may find that you have few opportunities to grow your leadership skills, practice strategic teamwork and develop commercial awareness, all of which are highly-valued by recruiters. We encourage applications from amongst those keen to explore the health and life sciences sector as well as those with some experience to apply. The programme is open to all disciplines.

Successful applicants will receive initial training, then tackle a genuine question posed by a local organisation. This experience will teach you how to engage with clients, analyse strategic questions in short time-frames, produce client-friendly outcomes and generate tangible evidence of these skills for your CV.
