GMTS Trainee and Alumni Network Event


About the session:

Based on the needs of trainees and alumni, the Network has been set up to provide a forum for discussion, events, and networking within the region, specifically for GMTS trainees and grads. We’re starting off with a series of speakers in the new year, the first being Steve McManus an alumni of the scheme and current CEO of Royal Berkshire NHS FT. Steve started his career in the NHS as a registered nurse in 1987 before joining the Graduate Management Training Scheme at the turn of the millennium and switching over to management. Since then, he’s held various operational posts around the South East region before becoming CEO of the Royal Berkshire in 2017.

This session is for the South East GMTS Network, including current trainees and alumni of the scheme.
