NHS Careers has launched a major recruitment drive aimed at teenagers.

NHS Careers has launched a major recruitment drive aimed at teenagers.

The free information service, Step into the NHS, is aimed at encouraging 14-19 year olds to think how they could have a positive impact on the NHS in future.

It provides information, via the web or a phone line (0845 6060 655), on the many jobs available in the NHS, including a 'diary rooms' with NHS staff and an interactive career-map.

Foluke Ajayi, head of NHS Careers and workforce supply at NHS Employers, said: 'The launch of Step into the NHS marks the first time we have produced a service aimed specifically at engaging young people.'

RCN general secretary Peter Carter said the website was a 'really important initiative'.

'It will increase access to information for young people interested in entering the nursing profession,' he said. 'In particular, it will give them an insight into the different types of nursing careers available.'
