Administrative & Clerical

Administrative & Clerical

Administrative staff provide business support to clinical and non-clinical staff.

The NHS has to be well-organised and keep detailed records of patients and staff. Patients and other organisations need to be able to contact the NHS, to see or speak to the right person who can give them the help they need. That could be booking an appointment, getting advice or paying an invoice.


There are plenty of opportunities to take further qualifications and move on in your career. You could stay in administration, perhaps by becoming a team leader or supervisor. You could go on to become an administration manager.

You could also move into other wider healthcare roles, too. If you like figures, you could use your skills and experience to move into finance.

What are the pay and benefits?

Most digital jobs in the NHS are covered by the Agenda for Change (AfC) pay scales.

This pay system covers all staff except doctors, dentists and the most senior managers. Digital staff in the NHS will usually work standard hours of 37.5 per week but some evening or weekend work may be needed depending on the role.
