Apply to be a National Institute for Health and Care (NICE) Excellence fellow or scholar

Recruitment period open until 28 October


NICE is giving a chance to those working in health and social care to influence its work and gain access to a range of career-enhancing opportunities. Fellows and scholars are supported through a series of workshops alongside an allocated adviser. NICE appoints up to ten fellows and ten scholars per year. Fellows and scholars develop in a diverse professional environment, with like-minded colleagues representing different disciplines across the UK.

NICE fellows are senior health and social care leaders who are ambassadors at regional and national levels and among their professional groups and peers. Over the course of their three-year fellowship, they are expected to dedicate around one day per month to use their networks and influence to support NICE in the implementation of its products.

NICE scholarships are one-year opportunities for individuals working in health and social care to find out about the inner workings of NICE and undertake an improvement project, related to NICE products, within their local area. Scholars are expected to dedicate approximately one day per week to their scholarship activities.

Both roles are unpaid and undertaken alongside successful candidates for existing jobs. Applications close on 28 October 2019.
